“I have often traded by putting all my eggs in one basket and based my decisions off of rumors…”

Feedback in:

Hi Michael, Biggest challenge, I do not follow any rules, no structure or foundation. I have often traded by putting all my eggs in one basket and based my decisions off of rumors, “a friend of a friend told me about this stock, it’s gonna go big!”. There have been a few occasions where it has gone big and I have seen a lot of paper money in my account, in one case $250K, only to not sell and watch it dwindle all the way down to my original 15K investment, and then below that! I thought it was going to go much higher. I have lost a lot of money in the market and it is frustrating! I am tired of losing. By the way, I am obsessive, compulsive, impulsive, and a recovering alcoholic. I can obsess about anything. Not too long ago I was obsessed with the news. I am the director of a research clinic in CA, ran all the vaccine trials, saw all the lies out there from supposed “trusted institutions”, and it practically drove me to the looney bin, no joke. I hit a bottom emotionally right in front of my children and when that happened I knew it was time to dig myself out. Feeling better than I have ever felt now and only because of the actions I take each day. When I use my powers of obsession for good, I thrive. I plan on obsessing about Trend Following because I want my 2 little boys, my wife, myself, and my family to thrive. I am a winner, always have been, just been tricked by external forces. Sorry, more than you wanted I am sure. Chris K.

“Who could have predicted all this would be happening…”

Feedback in:

Michael, I’m a client (from about 2008 or so) and I emailed you a few weeks ago regarding the Paul T. Jones quote. One of your favorites, Joe Kernen, had this gem on Squawk Box this morning: “Who could have predicted all this would be happening?” (5/19, 7:16 am CST) I thought of your comments about CNBC being “noise.” Interesting comment for a program (and station) that spends nearly all of its time trying to predict. Thanks for your work in trend following.

Andy R.

Thanks for the support!

“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.
