Hey Michael, I was introduced to your work a few years ago by Bernie Drury [featured in The Little Book of Trading] and wanted to say that I’m definitely a fan! I read Trend Following and The Complete TurtleTrader and enjoyed them both a lot. I’m actually a close friend of Bernie’s and worked for him as an intern analyst for 5 summers. He taught me pretty much everything I know about trading, so between Bernie’s guidance and what I’ve read in your books I’ve really gained a lot of insight towards developing my own trading strategy.
Lately I’ve been working on testing a strategy that combines longer-term trend following signals with shorter-term counter-trend signals (hoping that the counter trend positions catch some of the smaller moves over a long trend). I found the appendix on trend following with equities [in “Trend Following” book] to be very useful with regards to this strategy.
Your name showed up on “People You May Know” on Facebook, so I figured I’d send a message. Anyhow, I just wanted to say that I enjoyed the books quite a bit and look forward to reading Trend Commandments. Feel free to shoot me an email anytime at [email]. Keep up the great work!
