I hope this actually gets through to you. I just finished the Trend Following book and was completely blown away. I am a total newbie and am riding with training wheels right now but I think I’ve taken a big step in the right direction by reading your book and following your material. I’d say my biggest challenge is getting started. I am a brand new retail trader and don’t have any mentors or one on one coaching readily available to me. I’m reading every trading book I can get my hands on and researching every other resource I can find. I know I need to be as systematic in my approach as possible. I haven’t experimented with many actual trades but I did go through the beginner’s luck phase before reality made itself known and I gave it all back and then some. I’ve been hooked ever since. I’m looking forward to continuing my study, developing a system, testing it, and getting rolling. Until then I’m organically growing my account and taking a few paper trades every week.
