“I tend to be late to the trade…”

Feedback in:

Michael,

When I identify a trend and take a long or short position as a result, I typically get stopped out with a loss most of the time when the trend reverses or fails. I set stops at about 10% for new positions. I tend to be late to the trade, so I must be identifying the trend too late. When I do find the stock I purchased or shorted goes in favor of my trade, often I sell/cover too soon and miss out on capturing much larger gains.

This not a wise strategy. You need:

• Exact rules for selecting your tracking portfolio.
• Exact rules for entering your trades at the right time.
• Exact rules for exiting your trades with a loss.
• Exact rules for exiting your trades with a profit.
• Exact rules for how much money to bet on each trade.

“How to become consistent in every move you take…”

Feedback in:

Hi Michael,

My biggest challenge is to find a consistent routine in trading. There are so many opportunities out there and so many strategies, indicators, and so on. It is so easy to get distracted. How to become consistent in every move you take?

Thank you that you are doing all this great work and publishing so much valuable information.

Best wishes,
Roman B.

“It was interesting to read the chapter about a certain John W. Henry in your book…”

Feedback in:

Hi Michael,

Enjoying the podcast & reading your book that has been on my shelf for several years. Could you send me some info on getting started please.

As a big Liverpool fan, it was interesting to read the chapter about a certain John W. Henry in your book who turned our club around & with the help of a talented manager turned us into winners.

What can be deduced from his decision to put the club up for sale? Is the bull market in premiership football over?

Many thanks & kind regards,
Mark

Just wanted to send a note and say I hope you had a good Happy Thanksgiving across the pond! Your monologues have been great the last few months! Thanks for telling the truth and it’s hilarious. Also I still can’t believe people email you not understanding trend following. I’m not sure how much more clear you have to be. Have a good one Mike!
