Michael, Can you recommend some simple, basic books that I can read to learn more about options, selling short and futures markets?

Dear Mr. Covel, Thank you for all the work you have done on trend following. It has changed my life and my career. As a 28 year veteran of the mainstream financial services industry, I have watched it devolve into nothing but a distribution network for the mutual fund industry. I have recommended your book to many of my clients and associates. I am amazed how many of my colleagues fail to embrace it. I have been using Metastock with great success in developing and executing a trend following system for my clients over the last two years. It helped me avoid most of the 2008 crash and it has us on the sidelines in the current sell-off. Attached is a marketing piece I developed for my trend following strategy with the help of Metastock using a trend following system.

Michael, I’ve read both of your book numerous times in the last few years. I watched the movie “Broke”, and should be sending you a pic in front of my university soon. I finally took the next step, got some software, which included [trend] system[s]. I started tweaking it and backtesting it. I couldn’t believe the return I would have made in the last four years. We’re talking close to 700%! I opened a broker account, and I’m starting to trade a paper account for a few months before I use my own money. I just wanted to say thank you so much for all the info, and more importantly, the hope you have given us to capitalize on the regardless of who you are.
