What Are People Saying?
"An outstanding book [Trend Commandments] for
anyone who wants to become rich by trading markets. Today, government
regulations and fiscal and monetary policies are badly distorting
financial markets. Covel accurately explains why, in this 'manipulated'
financial environment, you should never expect markets to move as you
wish or expect. Rather, disregard your fundamental beliefs and simply
follow the trend. Highly recommended!"
Managing Director, Marc Faber Ltd.
Editor, Gloom Boom & Doom Report
"If you are even thinking
of a career in trading, put down all the other books. Buy this one [Trend Commandments]. Read
it. Now you can start your career."
Managing Director, Formula Capital
"Fire up the barbecue. Michael Covel skewers the sacred cows of Wall
Street with tasty bite-sized bits of the truth about what it really
takes to succeed in trading and life. Wide-ranging, irreverent,
revealing, eminently quotable, and right on the money.
Market Wizard Trading Coach
"A rapidly moving, non-technical,
and outside-the-box effort that smartly captures the essentials of trend
Chairman and CEO, Computer Trading Corp
"Michael Covel's Trend Commandments is full of practical
wisdom in bite-size portions on the benefits of trend trading--written in
a straightforward storytelling format. It's definitely one to add to
your financial bookshelf."
Signal Financial Group
"Michael Covel is the very best at explaining the concepts of successful
trend following in plain English. I'm certain you'll be a successful
trader if you follow the ideas he outlines in Trend Commandments. This
book (and his previous two!) are required reading for new employees in
experienced two bear markets in the last decade. This has led to rising
volatility, uncertainty, and investor angst. For some it has been a lost
decade, but for trend traders it has been a decade of opportunity. Trend
Commandments helps you focus on what matters most: the trend of the
markets, whether up or down. You can profit from either. Trend
Commandments is essential reading for those who have the desire to
thrive and survive in an era of fast-paced trending markets."
CEO, Chief Investment Strategist, PFS Group
"Buy and hold has
been a difficult investment system for investors for a decade. In Trend
Commandments, Covel challenges readers to think differently and question
their beliefs about market 'truths' ingrained in them for years.
Forewarned, you just may never see the world the same way again."
Cambria Investment Management
"Covel's Trend Commandments offers a breezy rumination on what is right
about trend following and what is wrong about conventional trading
Author of Market Wizards and Schwager on Futures series
"Trend Commandments is a compelling read taking on serious issues in an
entertaining format. The chapter of 'Inefficient Markets' is a must
read, and I'm still laughing at the 'Intoxication' chapter--because in
truth there is humor."

"Successful traders need rules and the rules in this book are better
than most since they are from the most successful traders in the world.
Catch my drift? To be successful you must learn and apply these rules. I
rate this book a 3x--as to be read at least three times."
Author of An American Hedge Fund
"In Trend Commandments Covel writes, 'Golf Legend Jack Nicklaus is
famous for saying: 'Don't be too proud to take a lesson. I'm not. Learn
the fundamentals of the game and stick to them.' Every beginning or
experienced trend follower should take lessons from this book and your
previous books. I have been a trend follower for over 40 years and I am
not too proud to take lessons."
