“I’ve been successful overall, but made many mistakes randomly buying calls…”

Feedback in:

I am currently reading your Trend Following. I am enjoying it very much and am eager to learn all I can about the strategy. I started trading full-time around the start of the shutdowns. I’ve been successful overall, but made many mistakes randomly buying calls and puts. With the market trending up, I did very well selling naked puts. When the market turned against me at the start of the year, I got into trouble by foolishly rolling out the trades that went against me. My margin shrunk to nothing. I was issued margin calls and had to liquidate many of my long-term holdings to cover. I’m still under water by about $45K, but am slowly trading my way back to profitability. I currently use a wheel strategy. Instead of rolling out the puts that go against me, I allow them to get assigned to me and then sell covered calls against them. This is working very well with the current high volatility. I look to either add to or replace my current strategy with Trend Following. You have my compliments and appreciation for your work. I look forward to continuing my studies.

“He strongly recommends your books…”

Feedback in:

I used to work in equity research and was always frustrated that most of our fundamental calls went bust. I am located in Brazil and constantly our local market is affected by politician speeches, volatile economy, external economy. It seemed like that dictated more if I was going to hit my price target than actual valuation. Also we were always looking for excuses to explain why the market went one way or another. A lot of bullshit. Then, in the last couple of year I decided to try a buy and hold strategy, which I thought was Warren Buffet’s strategy, but again due to highly volatile markets and the Corona Crash, a strategy that seemed to be working out, rapidly went bust. Got to know about you through [name] a Brazilian influencer that has been trying to spread the trend following mindset. He strongly recommends your books. I am reading trend following and loving it. Thank you!

“Thoroughly enjoyed your discussion with Sarah…”

Feedback in:

Michael,

Thoroughly enjoyed your discussion with Sarah. Particularly the way you challenged her defending the ‘system’ (to a degree). Couldn’t help but think Stockholm Syndrome. Maybe not fair not knowing her struggles but she seemed tempted to align with your thinking, but couldn’t make the leap.

Anyway a great interview on your part.

Thank you,
Steve M.

Thanks.

“One of my problems is I have a hard time letting profits run…”

Feedback in:

I like being at my desk and trading micro e-mini futures. I watch the markets and I study a lot of trading and investing related topics. In studying the Turtles I heard you on a couple of podcasts. Among many items of concern, one of my problems is I have a hard time letting profits run. After reading about the turtle method of adding to winning positions I see my method of trading 2 contracts and exiting at 16 ticks for the first contract and at 40 ticks for the second is counter productive. As the singer says, I need a new drug, meaning a way to take my futures to a higher success rate.

Sincerely,
Michael B.

Some truth and questions to present:

1. If you can’t let profits run — hard to ever be successful.
2. Profit targets — bad
3. Day trading or tick trading — bad.
4. Which markets do you trade and why?
5. What is your exact system?
