“I started trading a trend following strategy after reading TurtleTrader and it has changed my life…”

Michael,

I always enjoy your podcast, I will do a better job of providing reviews! I started trading a trend following strategy after reading Turtle Trader 7 years ago, and it has changed my life. Currently, I am a Spinosaurus client of yours as well. I also have been practicing yoga for 2 years and it has changed things for me once again, your occasional mention of yoga sparked my interest. So basically, I have learned a lot from you. I have sent you an excerpt from the book “Meditations on Intention and Being” by Rolf Gates before. My understanding is that he is a yoga-teacher instructor, maybe he would be a good interview. Today’s reading stood out to me and I thought I would share a few lines:

“The inner life of humanity is haunted by the implacable fact that the things we create and love are impermanent and that the futures we are living into are uncertain. Yoga outlines a set of actions that can significantly reduce the amount of suffering we have to put up with.”

A separate note, in my day job I am a 20-year financial advisor and I recommend to clients that we allocate a percentage of the portfolio to the available mutual funds that use systematic trend following, and it is usually the most questioned investment. Unfortunately, all the funds that a broker-dealer will approve are the low volatility ones, so you don’t see a lot of “crisis alpha”. Interestingly enough. Dunn Capital has a fund now through Arrow Funds, my broker-dealer will not approve. One reason: “It does not have a long enough track record.” LMAO.

Thank you,

Chris

Thanks!
