Before I begin, first of all I’d like to thank you for the massive amount of information you make available. I’ve read your book Trend Following (including the new edition) and also The Complete Turtle Trader – both books have helped to clarify the trend following concept for me.
Another huge thank you for your podcasts. I listen to this often, and I find it really keeps me motivated to go on building my trading-business (I’m planning to only trade my own money) from the ground up. There are also many other helpful things in there – on more than just trading. Thanks, and keep up the good work!
I just thought I’d mention that I’ve come across your information through Van Tharp‘s home study course-materials and books – and I’ve been using his stuff a lot to get myself in the right frame of mind for this business. I’ve found that the trend following concept fits my beliefs the closest out of all the other concepts. In saying that, I’m also an avid investor in property and real estate – where I’ve found that my strategies are actually a mix of Value/Arbitrage/Income and trend following wrapped up all in one.
I have been paper trading this system in recent times, and it’s not too bad – I’ve been whipsawed a lot, but right now I’m actually short quite a few positions and it’s looking promising – whilst others are all panicking and running for cover, I’m actually enjoying the downturn… even looking forward to it!
Thanks once again for everything – God Bless.
Thanks. A good start is here.
