Michael Covel’s Trend Following Steps

“If there was a strategy that I would want to employ right now, if someone put a gun to my head, I’d say simple trend following strategies. They are not too popular today… They will probably do very well in the next 5 to 10 years.”
–Paul Tudor Jones, Market Wizard, May 3, 2022

“Michael Covel’s Trend Following: Essential.”
Ed Seykota
Trend following legend originally in “Market Wizards”

“The way I see it, you have two choices–you can do what I did and work for 30-plus years, cobbling together scraps of information, seeking to create a money-making strategy, or you can spend a few days reading Covel’s book [Trend Following] and skip that three-decade learning curve.”
Larry Hite
Trend following legend originally in “Market Wizards”

“I’m very uncomfortable with black box trading where I’m dealing with algorithms I don’t understand. Everything we do we could do on the back of an envelope with a pencil.”
Famed trend follower on simplicity (40+ year track record)
