Seems most crowded trades end in tears - the exit ramp gets full too easily.
So I tend to bet against them. The trick is timing, though. Too soon and get your face ripped off - they work until they don't - yet it's also easy to be too late since when the collapse - it's very fast.
So you spend a long time paying detailed attention without actually doing anything, which is kind of boring - hard to do well. Feels like earning the money the hard way.
