I am reading your trend following book right now and I read the Turtle Traders a few years ago (and loved the story). I am a money manager that manages my own money. I love learning about all different types of styles and of course I find trend following very interesting and want to learn more. I would classify myself as a growth investor that focuses on fundamentals but as I invest more and more I have been beginning to use more and more technical analysis to confirm my opinions, and generally won’t purchase a stock unless the technicals support it. Wanted to shoot you a note to say hello, because it mentions you read all the emails – and in case we ever cross paths. I look forward to finishing Trend Following over the next couple of weeks and imagine I will enjoy it as much as the Turtle Traders.
Be careful with the term “technicals.”
It can mean anything and usually carries the same weight as nothing.
