“I hope to be a client soon…”

Feedback in:

Hi Michael,

Hope you are well.

I think about emailing you from time to time but this one really compelled me to. There is a macro investor with a podcast [name] Show. His name is [name]. On this past Friday’s podcast number xxx with another macro investor [name], there were several times when they talked about when to get out of big moves. They gave examples from the past when they got out too early. One instance, [name] asked [name] specifically when to get out. His response was, “somewhere in the middle.” These are very smart men but it seems they have no knowledge of trend following. What is somewhat odd is that [name] has referenced the Market Wizards books several times. You can listen to the podcast if you want (maybe use it for content) but here is the kicker, at the end [name] is promoting an 8-hour seminar on Uranium investing. I am thinking, 8 hours when all you need is price. I found out about you from a Tim Price newsletter and it immediately clicked with me. I hope to be a client soon if I can ever stop making stupid decisions with money because I believe we are in a 1970’s type environment.

“Journaling my trades specially the bad ones…”

Feedback in:

Good Day Michael,

I wish I could point to a single biggest challenge faced in my trading but I’ll try below.

1. Working a full time career around my trading.
2. Getting out of my own way in trading such as take profits and losses (aka; following my rules)
3. Journaling my trades specially the bad ones! (aka; emotional control)
4. Addicted to option trading which has been the single factor of my last few years of losing full accounts to zero
5. Not having a trading mentor

Out of those, top 2.

2. Following my Rules
3. Journaling my trades to best understand and study my losses

Thanks for hearing me out Michael! I think I have a possibly unique story but not sure. My first few years in trading (started in 2017) were filled with bad habits which rewarded me in a middle of a bull market! From $60 to almost 92k in 3 years. Then the bear market arrived and slammed me back to reality. The ATM was closed and now taking back all of its money! I know I have to unlearn all of my bad habits and replace them with sound consistent good ones!

Thanks again Michael!

“I want investment returns to be greater, but never have the time to research…”

Feedback in:

Hi Michael!

You asked what is the biggest challenge you have faced in your trading?
Answer: Limits on time to gain effective, actionable knowledge.

I “manage” some investments myself through 401k and Fidelity (long). I use New Harbor financial group to manage some money (long and short), and have some in short term T-Bills.

Time is a scarce commodity in my life. I have a full time job in software solution advisory. My wife and I run 2 restaurants (targeting more) and own three properties. I run a small snowplowing business in the winter, plowing for the State.

I want to quit the “job” therefore diversifying interests. Job provides good salary & benefits. Restaurants keep wife busy, plowing is good income. I want investment returns to be greater, but never have the time to research, and take action on, trends and momentum.

Thanks for reading,
Ken P.

“I got caught up in over trading and I’m mostly recovered by now…”

Feedback in:

[Biggest challenge in trading] I got caught up in over trading and I’m mostly recovered by now.

I discovered the trend following concepts by myself as a consequence of my background in pattern recognition and feature extraction of details in music — I discovered what makes music swing for my masters thesis research, wanting to play Brasilian music authentically.

I’m constantly looking for new and better info about markets and trading. Turtles came onto my radar a few years ago but I only recently looked into it thanks to ThriftBooks suggestions.

I’m looking forward to an interesting connection with you.

Thanks.

Feedback in:

My biggest challenge [in trading] is selling winners too soon.

Anthony

What is your trading strategy and time frame as of now?

My main strategy has been momentum day and swing trading small cap stocks with low floats experiencing high relative volume.

I closed 2022 and 2023 with losses of about 2k each year so I’ve taken a break from trading serious money until I can be consistently profitable in a simulator and with small amounts of cash.

Most of my losses came from getting in at the top of stocks moving way too fast and most of my gains were quick swing trades, completed in 2-3 days.

Most of my education so far has come from [names]. So I’m still very much a beginner.

I recently bought your main book Trend Following – I really like the simplicity of the trend following approach since it has a lot in common with momentum trading strategies.

Let me be blunt — I would toss your current strategy asap. It’s a dead end. Day trading, a dead end.

Trend following is the path.
