Hello, I just finished reading Trend Following and it raises many questions. I’m a firm believer in your basic premise of how to trade and it’s taken me many years to get to the realization, what I’ve been doing these past 10 years or so hasn’t been working. I amassed a nice little nest egg remodeling homes part time for 20 years, maybe 2-3 million. I then stopped working and spent my time raising 2 boys with my wife, probably the best decision of my life. But what I’ve done these past 10 years defies logic. I trusted people I did not know in fields I did not understand with too much of my hard earned money. Needless to say, I’ve lost 90% of my worth and now carry a bit of shame and guilt for my own stupidity. I’ve easily read a dozen books (on trading) and want to believe that I can turn my downward spiral around. I lost initially and then went back to paper trading. I’ve been live for about 6 weeks now and treading water. I’m getting closer to having something that consistently wins but realize it’s going to be a long haul. I’m now working with 25K but probably have closer to 200K liquid. I don’t dare risk more than my 25K or my wife will have something to say. I can’t blame her after what I’ve done to our nest egg. I’m not sure why I’m writing to tell you my story other than to hear what you might suggest to help me find my way. My house is leveraged and I have no job so every day feels like I’m starting all over. Please feel free to respond in any way you like. Thank you for taking the time to read this email.
