Dear Mr. Covel, I have really enjoyed reading two of your books: Trend Following and The Complete TurtleTrader. And recently started listening to your podcasts. I am in the process of relocating to Singapore and it was from one of these podcasts that I learned you are currently there. Unfortunately, I am not there next week to attend the Bloomberg/MTA Singapore ‘Systematic Trading for Investment Professionals’ Seminar but would really appreciate an opportunity to meet with you and ask a few questions that I have always thought about. I first started in the markets in 1996 on LIFFE and relocated to Australia in 2002 where I was a futures broker for a couple of years (we used to execute Elizabeth Cheval’s EMC orders) and then I became a prop trader in 2005. I am now working for a company called [Name] assisting one of the senior portfolio managers, but am really keen to explore and learn more about Trend Trading. I can see the benefits & upside of having predetermined entry and exit points based on price action.
You are welcome! We will have to meet another time as that Singapore trip was very brief.
