Dear Mr. Covel,
I’ve been listening to your podcast for about 4 months now and more than ever I really wanted to reach out to express my gratitude for putting together such a great show. I used to use technical analysis trade in college but since graduation I have been working in risk at a large asset manager in NYC so haven’t had much time. Around January of this year I decided I was going to get back into trading my own account and during my research I came across the turtle traders, which lead me to your book and subsequently your podcast.
Listening to your interviews with Michael Melissinos and Glenn Graham earlier this week really got me motivated to take my work to the next level. I am 25 so hearing from those guys about how they started out when they were about my age really got me excited. I don’t plan on dropping everything to open a fund, but it lends some credibility to this hobby that I keep pouring hours into. Top that off with your latest episode about how most of my generation base their decisions off a quick Google search and it makes me feel even more energized about the reading and research I enjoy to do (I apologize on my generation’s behalf, I have no idea how the hipster phenomenon took hold either).
Really I just wanted to say thank you for all the work you are doing. I have been listening for so long now I figured it was about time I let you know you have one more happy listener in the states. Your podcast is one of the highlights of my week and the guests you manage to bring on is simply amazing. Keep up the great work.
