The objective of this paper is to examine the impacts and profitability in great detail of sub-variants of price momentum strategies on Karachi Stock Exchange (KSE) which is an emerging stock market. The sub-variants are price momentum strategies, trading volume based momentum strategies and weekly momentum strategies. It is found out that KSE is an emerging stock market which is fully integrated with existing financial global system and offers positive returns. It is also found out that price momentum strategies give positive above average statistically significant returns. Trading volume based momentum strategies and weekly momentum strategies with shorter time period gives average or below average return. Though most of weekly and trading volume momentum strategies are profitable but they should be used in combination with price momentum strategies and should have shortest formation period. Future research should focus on intra-day trading volume and emerging stock markets.
