“Those who seek shall find, and once they find they will be disturbed, when they are disturbed they will marvel and reign over all. This was written 2000 years ago by St. Thomas and still holds true today. If you do not focus on your own path to discovery you will not succeed as a trader. Michael Covel’s book certainly places you on the correct path and focuses in the right direction. A fair wind to all that sail those pages.”
