“I don’t trust the fed or wall street…”

Feedback in:

Hey Michael,

I am 19 years old, and my friend gifted me the trend following book to me. He knew I was into trading and eventually wanting to start my own hedge fund. I must say the book blew my mind off. I only read the first few pages about the traders and now going over trend following principals. You helped me out so much. I love the podcast that you have. Thank you for the work that you do. I look up to you. You are very clear and don’t bullshit. I don’t like buy and hold. I don’t trust the fed or wall street. I want more and the free video. I want more insight into this. I want to make it in asset managment. Thank you once again for writing the book and sharing insight.

Adam G.

“It’s hard for me to lay out more money for another system that I fear will just sit in my mind and never get acted on…”

Feedback in:

Dear Michael,

Hi! I am writing to inquire about the “twisted discount” you offer on your website. I have read Turtle Traders and was fascinated by it. Problem is, once I read something it sends me down another rabbit hole; TurtleTraders led me to the Taylor Trading Technique and Linda Raschke and Brian Shannon (AVWAP) and Anna Couling (Volume Price Action) and William O’Neil (CANSLIM).

But the more information I get the more paralyzed I become. When I began my trading journey I did so because I have always been interested in it but was always told it was gambling and not a respected way of life. So I became a lawyer and worked [name] (for a summer;) and got my taste of the market back in 1995. And then I had 4 kids and raised them in VT, never getting a chance to invest in the market. So now that I am divorced with control of my finances, I am finally able to live my dream of trading; yet I am too chicken to make a trade.

So, I joined an investment group hoping a group of ppl would give me the boost I needed; but canceled within 2 weeks because the “very successful” moderator was so condescending and arrogant that I was too afraid to even ask a question let alone follow what he suggested—plus they were dealing in numbers I couldn’t even fathom (like 1700 Nividia 1195 calls). And before that, I got burned joining a Penny Stock group that follows 4 cent bankruptcy stocks watching for the bounce (to which I still belong bc it is a lifetime membership LOL).

I told all of this to the Fidelity manager that I saw yesterday after I pulled out of the investment group. And it was that Fidelity manager, [name], who recommended I look you up. Although I read the Turtle Trader a month or so ago, I didn’t realize that you had a whole system. And now having read though your website, I find it very appealing. And so, I am writing to you to inquire what type of discount you would consider. I am embarrassed to ask as you should be paid for your products and expertise; but if I am not confident enough to trade yet, I’ve got to be confident in making money somehow, and so I will submit this plea for a discount.

But in all honesty, I have invested so much time and money in learning, it’s hard for me to lay out more money for another system that I fear will just sit in my mind and never get acted on. I get that’s my own fault, but I will make a promise back: whatever discount you provide, I will repay with the first funds that I make from trading as my initial goal with purchasing your system is finding the confidence to make my first trade (and I am confident once I do I will be successful!)

Thank you for your consideration.

Best regards,
[name].

The biggest challenge [in trading] is to make a living with day trading.

Bad plan. Odds are high you fail with day trading. Try this instead.

“What is your opinion on God, religion, rituals and…”

Feedback in:

Hi Michael,

Greetings from India. I’m a trend following trader & trend following philosophy follower as well, but I’m having a conflict in my mind with religion. I’m not participating in religion beliefs and God(s) and I know it’s okay, just as long as I don’t fight the bigger trend. But I find myself writing small paragraph on why I think religion & God are idiotic concepts. I’m an atheist.

What is your opinion on God, religion, rituals & all that associated with this matter? Can you answer in details in your Trend Following Radio on YT please?

Have a good day.

Swarnava D.

I give trend following insights, not religious insights.

“I am attempting to trade the forex market…”

Feedback in:

Dear Mr. Covel,

I am attempting to trade the forex market. I know of no other market where someone can make or lose so much so quickly. To get to the point, I’m looking at the GBP/JPY. If you look at a chart, I’m obviously late to the party. I know about entering a market when it has reached a 55 day high, but I missed that a long time ago. However, it seems to have risen past resistance. So I’m trying to enter midstream you might say. Any advice? Thanks for your time. I just subscribed to your newsletter. Thanks again.

Nathan L.

That’s an incomplete way to see trend following. You need:

Portfolio: What market do you buy or sell?
Bet Sizing: How much of a market do you trade?
Entry: When do you buy or sell a market?
Exit: When do you exit a losing trade?
Exit: When do you exit a winning trade?

Feedback in:

Michael,

My biggest challenge in trading is being able to find the time while still working full-time at my “real job” to be laser focused on knowing and applying what I do think I know about trading to achieve consistent successful results.

All The Best,
David H.

Trend following is end of day or end of week bar. No day trading.
