“The biggest challenge is where to start and how to do it…”

Feedback in:

Hi Michael,

I’m new to trading, so for me, the biggest challenge is where to start and how to do it! What type of investing/trading should I be doing? I am certainly a believer in long-term investing, as I put money that I have saved into mutual funds/ETFs. But for trading, what blend of analysis is effective and will earn the greatest returns while properly managing risk. Fundamental analysis, technical analysis, value investing, momentum trading, etc. It is a lot for me to take in. I know how to block out large media company articles and news channel advise, but sometimes I get sucked into Twitter and Medium blog posts. Alas, though, I just finished The Complete TurtleTrader and I am so excited at the thought of Trend Following. I am very logical and mathematical, so I love the idea of a system that I can follow. One that doesn’t rely on trusting your gut, interpreting every rising wedge on decreasing volume (or whatever), or buying or selling the news, but a system that has rules that you should not deviate from and THAT HAS PROVEN RESULTS. This is something I can get on board with. I truly enjoyed The Complete TurtleTrader, and your book Trend Following is already in the mail. Thank you so much for your writings.

Troy

Keep going!
