I see a time when people awake to opportunity will understand the process of the greatest systematic traders from the last five decades. My life-long passion is to spread a message the status quo wants silenced, to popularize a contrarian movement.

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,” Covel instructs investors and traders how to generate profits through simple and repeatable rules. He is best known for popularizing the controversial trading strategy of trend following and for his podcast that has become an international phenomena with over two million listens.

An avowed entrepreneur, Covel 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 like-minded traders that quietly generate spectacular returns, those going against the grain of investment orthodoxy, he has uncovered astonishing insights about how they think, strategize and execute their systems.

Covel’s cutting-edge and unorthodox perspectives have garnered international acclaim and have earned him invitations with a host of organizations, including: China Asset Management Co., Ltd., GIC Private Limited (Singapore sovereign wealth fund), BM&F Bovespa, Managed Funds Association, Bank of China Investment Management, Market Technicians Association, multiple hedge funds and mutual funds. He also has the distinction of interviewing four Nobel Prize winners in economics, 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. Covel posts on Twitter, publishes his blog, michaelcovel.com and records his podcast regularly. He splits his time across USA and Asia and sees location independence as our future.
