Editorial Reviews

Review

The Little Book of Trading reveals the secrets from trend-following insiders giving you the freedom to trade all markets: interest rates, copper, currencies, stocks -- you name it! Covel encourages you to take that TV blaring CNBC and throw it right out the window. Charts cut the noise.”
—Addison Wiggin, Best-selling author of
Demise of the Dollar; Executive Publisher, Agora Financial, LLC

“In The Little Book of Trading, Michael Covel has collected many gems of wisdom from some of the great traders of our time. After reading this book and piecing together all of the commonalities therein, you’ll begin to understand what it takes to be successful in the markets. Ignore these key truths and one day you’ll watch your account disappear.”
—Van K. Tharp, Ph.D., President, The Van Tharp Institute.

“Michael Covel’s unique insight into trading is invaluable. Both novice and experienced traders can benefit from Michael’s thorough knowledge of markets around the globe. The Little Book of Trading is a must read for serious investors.”
—Louis G. Navellier, Chairman and Founder, Navellier & Associates, Inc.

“Imagine being in the circle of trust of some of the greatest traders of all time, knowing what made them successful and having them share heartfelt advice. Though the eyes of Michael Covel in The Little Book of Trading, you will truly feel this experience.”
—Murray A. Ruggiero Jr., Contributing Editor, Futures Magazine; VP Research and Development, TradersStudio Inc.

“Michael Covel’s Little Book of Trading is a must-read guide to help you succeed in the shark-infested waters of the investment world.”
—From the Forward, Cullen O. Roche, Founder and CEO, Orsus Investments, LLC; Proprietor of Pragmatic Capitalism

“The latest addition to the ‘little book big profits’ series, Michael W. Covel’s The Little Book of Trading: Trend Following Strategy for Big Winnings looks at the financial world through the eyes of successful trend traders … What Covel stresses throughout the book are the accompanying principles that make trend following viable: stick to your plan and manage your risk through diversification, stop placement, and position sizing. These are important principles for any kind of trading, but for trend following they are critical … Successful trend following traders try to capture the outliers, the really big moves that more than compensate for the many small losses they take. This goal requires traders to have confidence in their systems and confidence in themselves. By introducing the reader to successful trend traders, Covel believes that some of their ‘magic’ just might rub off.”
—Seeking Alpha

From the Inside Flap

" The Little Book of Trading reveals the secrets of trend following insiders, giving you the freedom to trade all markets: interest rates, copper, currencies, stocks–you name it! Covel encourages you to take that TV blaring CNBC and throw it right out the window. Charts cut the noise."
—Addison Wiggin bestselling author of The Demise of the Dollar ; Executive Publisher, Agora Financial, LLC

Revealing the tricks which lead to success that today's market wizards keep up their sleeves, The Little Book of Trading is the resource you need to get all markets working for you again.

Recent events have left the average individual investor extremely dubious about playing the markets. But just because some unprepared individuals have paid for their mistakes is no reason to stay away from taking advantage of trending opportunities that, with a little careful planning, can yield exceptional results. Market fluctuation is nothing new, but there is a set of rules and philosophies that you can rely on to get the market back on your side, regardless of whether times are good or bad.

Drawing on author Michael Covel's own extensive experience in the trading world, as well as tips and insights gathered from some of the world's most successful traders, the book identifies the tools, concepts, psychologies, and philosophies that will keep your money growing—and safe—even when the next bubble bursts or the next crisis hits. With each chapter featuring easy-to-understand advice from a top trader or trading firm that has won by beating mutual fund performance, this Little Book prepares the cautious, would-be investor to make money like an old hand and presents a revolutionary new argument—that mutual funds, long the investment vehicle of choice for people looking for security in retirement, are no longer to be relied on.

With everything you need to grab all markets by the horns, this book provides a comprehensive overview of active investing strategies and risk-management techniques that you can easily use to your best advantage.

Michael Covel searches. He digs. He goes behind the curtain to reveal a state of mind the system doesn’t want you in.

Characterized as essential and required reading, Covel teaches beginners to seasoned pros how to generate profits with straightforward repeatable rules and is best known for popularizing the controversial trading strategy TREND FOLLOWING.

An avowed entrepreneur, Covel is the author of five books including the international bestseller, Trend Following and his investigative narrative, TurtleTrader. Fascinated by reclusive traders who have quietly generated spectacular returns for decades, those going against the investment orthodoxy of “efficient markets”, Covel has uncovered astonishing insights about human behavior, decision-making and trading systems.

His perspectives have garnered international acclaim and have earned him invitations with a host of organizations: China Asset Management, GIC Private Limited (Singapore sovereign wealth fund), BM&F Bovespa, Managed Funds Association, Bank of China Investment Management, Market Technicians Association and multiple hedge funds and mutual funds. He also has the distinction of interviewing five Nobel Prize winners in economics (so far), including Daniel Kahneman and Harry Markowitz and has been featured by major press, including The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, CCTV, The Straits Times and Fox Business.

His highly ranked podcast Trend Following™ reaches over one hundred eighty-eight countries with over 5 million listens. Guests include world-class thinkers, psychologists, economists and traders.

Covel posts on Twitter, publishes his blog and records a podcast weekly. His clients are in 70+ countries and he splits time across USA and Asia.
