Here is my biggest challenge: Deciding whether I can trade or not. Please read on. I’ve been interested in your system for a few months now, inspired by the results that a trusted friend has earned using it for several years now. I’ve listened to a podcast or two, and am now reading Trend Following with much enjoyment, but wish for a bit of advice. Meanwhile, before even knowing about Turtle Trading, I’ve been increasingly uneasy about my investments, realizing that I’m entrusting others to make money for me in ways that, historically, have been inconsistent or unreliable. I’m a composer/musician/poet and wonder if it’s possible to watch the data while playing the piano? if not, is it possible to listen to podcasts or audible as I monitor the trading screen? In other words, is it possible to integrate the two endeavors? How? I’d hate to give up my artistic skills for trading. How can I do both–successfully?
Thank you very much, and I like your humane writing style.
You have a system. You do that. You want to do other stuff in life? Ok. Why not? Trend following is not day trading. Of course, you can listen to a podcast.
