Michael Covel searches. He digs. He goes behind the curtain to reveal a state of mind the system doesn’t want you in.
Characterized as “essential” and “required reading,” Michael teaches beginners to seasoned pros how to generate profits with straightforward and repeatable rules. He is best known for popularizing the counter-intuitive and very controversial trading strategy TREND FOLLOWING.
An avowed entrepreneur, Michael is the author of five books including the international bestseller, Trend Following: Learn to Make Millions in Up or Down Markets and his investigative narrative, The Complete TurtleTrader: How 23 Novice Investors Became Overnight Millionaires. Fascinated by secretive traders that have quietly generated spectacular returns for 7 decades, those going against the investment orthodoxy of “buy and hold”, Michael has uncovered astonishing insights about the right way to think, develop and execute trend following systems.
His perspectives have garnered international acclaim and have earned him invitations with a host of organizations: China Asset Management, GIC Private Limited (Singapore sovereign wealth fund), BM&F Bovespa, Managed Funds Association, Bank of China Investment Management, Market Technicians Association and multiple hedge funds and mutual funds. He also has the distinction of interviewing five Nobel Prize winners in economics (so far), including Daniel Kahneman and Harry Markowitz and has been featured by major press, including The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, CCTV, The Straits Times and Fox Business.

How is Covel pronounced? Co-vell. “Co” rhymes with toe. “Vell” rhymes with bell. Equally accented each syllable. It was shortened from Covalesky, which was shortened originally from Kavaliauskas. Michael also admires The Fountainhead, collects dinosaur skulls, took a Constitutional case before the Virginia Supreme Court, likes the Anthony Bourdain travel life, can still swing a bat with authority and once ran for political office.
