Trend following

I was curious if people think trend following is a good strategy, and if there are ETFs or Mutual funds that do it? My understanding is it is done a lot with managed futures.

Depends on the trend(s) being followed. Most of the MI algorithms are following one trend or another. One of the key aspects of any trend following, though, is recognizing within a useful time frame when the trend has been broken, and another key aspect is recognizing when (if) the trend has resumed.
