Curiosity and Strong Passion for Trend Following

Feedback in:

Mr. Covel,

My name is [Name]. I wanted to send you an email saying thank you for all of your publications about trend trading. I started trading when I was 15 based on all curiosity and now has grown into a strong passion. I’m 23 years old and have followed your work for 3 years now and now drastically increased my returns but also my view point on the market.

After the fund I worked at sold its assets, I was laid off. Once that happened I went through your books again and it has only kept me more focused on my goals of running my own fund one day. Your work is very appreciated and anyone I know that trades or wants to get into trading, I forward them to your website and to all the books and podcasts.

Thank you Mr. Covel.

Best,
[Name]

You are welcome! As you know Curiosity drives Trend Following.

Dear Michael,

First off, I would like to thank you on the excellent work you have done. You should be very proud of your efforts. The courage you have shown at times is highly impressive.

I am not a particularly good writer, but I will try to keep this concise and accurate. I have been working in the finance area for roughly ten years, but until recently I didn’t know of you. In fact, I only discovered Richard Dennis and the turtle story a few years ago. I read up on them for a bit, then as daily work took over and whatever else, I never went back to them. I then lost my job, became pretty sick, moved country…well, a lot happened. I have always been surrounded by fundamental type fund managers and analysts, who never really wanted or asked my opinion, I was just their operations or trader guy. I never had the confidence to voice my opinion. Listening to conversations with lines like ‘China mobile is cheap at twelve times earnings’ or ‘I should really tweak my estimates slightly on mediatek’. The usual blah blah, by guys who only cared about beating their peers, despite meaning that could mean their clients losing money. While I never believed it, I never really took the time to seek an alternative way. I was generally more interested in sport. Also, I never had any kind of mentor. I know these sound like lame excuses, maybe they are.

To use your words Michael, I am ‘making a commitment to change’. My motivation is one for change in my life. I have consumed a lot of your work in recent months, mostly the books and podcasts (an outstanding service). I am very interested in purchasing your training program. I am more than humble to admit, I can’t turn things around without help and sound advice. I am not seeking a Holy Grail as mentioned on your site. I want to give myself minimum one year full effort and commitment, part of a plan to turn things around. Of course, it will hopefully be one year or many more.

About the program, I am concerned that I may wander off course, so to speak. There is a lot of reading material. Can I read that over time? Can I educate myself with the systems at the same time? I worry that without checkpoints along the way, the books will gather dust. I guess that is up to me. My capital for investments at the moment is relatively modest. I also worry that I should have more questions to ask, but don’t.

Thank you for your time. I am happy to call you if you have a spare five mins, I understand you are a busy guy. Email is more than fine.

Regards,
[Name]

Sure, we can talk. I look forward to the chat.

In advance of that call listen.

Hello Michael,

I’m a 25 year veteran as a financial advisor and I’ve subscribed to more newsletters and systems than I care to admit. I know there’s no “magic bullet” to investing success when confronted with the chaos that exists in this world, but your writings and the evidence you provide has made a significant impact on me. I, like most of my financial advisor brethren, (particularly those who are independent like the [name] advisors) want to make a positive impact on the financial lives of our clients and break free from the “buy and hope” nonsense still prescribed by Wall Street professionals and the index funds. Your teaching has already helped me help my clients to better manage the risks of the markets and I’m extremely grateful. I’m an avid listener to your podcast and own three of your books (all with extensive highlighting and underlining).

All the best to you and the Trend Following team.

Regards,
[Name]

Thanks!

If Our Roles Were Reversed

If our roles were reversed? I believe that giving your money is giving me your trust. You are making a sacrifice, and could choose other opportunities. My goal is always to make sure that what I am giving you is more valuable than what you are giving me and my firm. That straightforward business principle is the foundation of my long-term relationship with all of my customers.

Trading A System: The Thinking Behind Success

Feedback in:

Dear Michael,

I’ve been a long time follower of you and as a huge fan and enthusiast of your work, I HAD to write you to express my sincere gratitude regarding your coverage on the subject of trend following. Your knowledge and breath about the topic is not only refreshing, but incredibly insightful as I grapple a working investment strategy of my own.

I continue to listen to your podcasts and read your books. I was wondering if you could perhaps do a podcast on how one creates a ‘system’? Could you go into detail about how to create a model, what metrics or analytics one should use, look at, or consider? I would love to learn more about the anatomy of ‘the system’ and the psychology and decision-making behind placing trades.

I’m a novice financial guy, but am obsessed with learning and wanting to win. How cool would it be if there was another Richard Dennis type that decided to create a turtle trader-like experiment.

Best Wishes,
[Name]

I have discussed an assortment of topics across hundreds of podcast episodes (many that you raise), all for free. My books? Examples like your desires across them. Much detail. However, for those clients that want even more personal support my products online (Go) are an option. Thanks for your interest and great feedback!

My Plan for Trend Following Mastery

Feedback in:

Good evening: My name is [Name] & I live in [Name]. I work for [Name] in their [Name] & [Name] offices. I’m reaching out because my goal in life is to be a full-time trader, but I need a mentor. [Name] offers a lot of resources, but I can’t seem to stay connected to an instructor long enough to actually learn this skill. Can you please help me? I will do whatever it takes to make this work. I want to be able to spend more time with my 4 kids & amazing wife that I’ve been with since we were 17. We’re 36. Thank you in advance for your time, [Name]
