Greetings Michael, My name is [Name] and I am a relatively new investor/trader. I have been unsuccessfully trading the stock market since early 2012. I have approximately $30K invested in the stock market and have seen that investment go down by $6K twice including today’s massive sell-off as well as up $8K twice. For some reason i keep making the same mistakes and I would appreciate some help with sticking to some rules. I really see myself as a trend follower because the stock market is very unpredictable. I would love for some help and guidance with this. I actually just finished your interview with Kevin Bruce and my goal in achieving high returns in the stock market is for “Freedom” and opportunity for various choices. I follow tweets from both you and Jon Boorman.
My options: books and podcast. Great place to start. Also, for more hand holding: go.
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.
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!
