Michael, I will keep this short. I am sure you get 1000 email a day. I have given trading an honest effort. For the past 10 years I have had an interest and dabbled until 6 years ago I took several seminars from top trading system gurus and blew out a couple accounts…. got even more serious and read 36 books in 2 years trying to find the answer! I will say ‘Trend following’ was one of the books that made the chart. After another attempt at trading, I took a 2 year break. Now here I am and after disconnecting from all the views swaying me left and right with all the contrary systems, I feel strong that following the trend is the answer. I would like your list of books NOT to read because, other than your ‘Trend Following’, none of the books I read are on your list. I would love to know that I was reading the wrong crap! I would like more info. on your teaching and courses, however I am a little concerned about the selling on your website. You know what they all say: “you either do it or sell HOW to do it….” Basically I am usually turned off by the hype. If it is so good why not just make money doing it and not selling it, right? Help me help me.
First, from this list here are books not worth reading: Peter Lynch books, Cramer books, the ‘Dummies’ books, Siegel books and ‘anything’ that predicts anything. These authors are surely not bad people personally. but there is just not much reason to try and do what they say to do.
Second, what more info. would you like on our training? How can I help? In terms of selling information (and teaching) by your logic why does Harvard exist? What does any teaching exist? Why does anyone write a book on anything? I have been around for too long helping too many for this to be a legitimate concern. My firm simply helps people get there faster than on their own and being capitalists we ask for compensation for that help. And yes, I trade my own account.
