“I have listened to shit loads of your episodes and it’s a weekly thing for me…”

Feedback in:

I really enjoy your podcast. I listened to Trend following on Audible and the excerpt at the end, your interview with Tom Basso, that’s when I was first directed to the podcast. That was at least 3 years ago. Since then I have listened to shit loads of your episodes and it’s a weekly thing for me now. I’ve also bought a fair amount of books from those you have interviewed. Long story short, I just want to say thanks.

That’s all really.

Regards,
Paul

Thanks!

My guest today is Michael Meyer. He took a wide route to the story of Benjamin Franklin’s remarkable afterlife, starting when Meyer was sent to China as one of its first Peace Corps volunteers. Beginning with The Last Days of Old Beijing, he authored three critically-acclaimed reported books set there, as well as numerous stories that appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Financial Times, Time, Smithsonian, and on This American Life. A Guggenheim Fellow and Whiting Award winner, Meyer has also received fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the New York Public Library’s Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers, MacDowell, and the Rockefeller Foundation’s Bellagio Center in Italy.

The topic is his book Benjamin Franklin’s Last Bet.

In this episode of Trend Following Radio we discuss:

  • The incredible story of Benjamin Franklin’s parting gift to the working-class people of Boston and Philadelphia—a deathbed wager that captures the Founder’s American Dream and his lessons for our current, conflicted age.

“If the book is missing any key elements that would compromise my results…”

Feedback in:

I’ve used various strategies over the years with mixed success. I even hired a day trader to mentor me for several months so I could understand their mindset. Never actually wanting to day trade myself. My strategy lately is: Identify companies I would want to actually own, while staying in cash until their stock prices get destroyed. Then buy cheap and hold for 2 years-ish. I could be buying back in any day. Here’s what I am really looking for. The shortest path to executing the Turtle strategy with disciplined precision to prove to myself it is reliable and executable. I can afford to be patient with investing because I don’t live off the income. So if there isn’t a clear trend I can stay in cash and wait. I’m listening to your book while the paperback is shipping. While I appreciate the story as an audiobook, I really want the black & white strategy that I can execute with confidence. Exactly how you define a trend, and exactly how portfolio risk is managed. If it’s all in the book I’m good to go. If the book is missing any key elements that would compromise my results in any way please let me know.

I would toss the strategy you describe, then once you finish your initial trend following book reads you will be on your way.

“I wanted to share a story that I thought you might like…”

Feedback in:

I’m still listening and loving the podcast! I wanted to share a story that I thought you might like. 25 years ago I had a friend who was a farmer, he told me that he had just upgraded his tractor and it has a GPS system which automatically fertilizes the areas of the field to maximize yield and minimize costs. I assumed that it would fertilize the dead areas more to try and encourage growth and leave the strong growing areas alone, but I was wrong and he went on to explain that it ignores these areas and fertilizes the stronger growth areas. I was amazed and that sentiment stuck in my head for years. Now in the words of a very wise man “Isn’t this Trend Following 101!” Keep up the good work.

Great story!

“I trade forex for weekly swings if you will…”

Feedback in:

I am a trend follower of some kind. I don’t trade breakouts but I look for signs of momentum and then follow that impulse until I see the same signal to the other side, then I follow it too. But also I am not a long-term trader. I trade forex for weekly swings if you will, looking at 4hr and 30 min charts.

That is not trend following. Toss the 30 minute bar nonsense.
