Review

“Michael Covel’s Trend Following: Essential.”

--Ed Seykota, trend follower for 35 years and original Market Wizard

 

"For my staff, Michael Covel's Trend Following is required reading."

Larry Hite CEO, ISAM,

Originally profiled in The Market Wizards by Jack Schwager

 

"My favorite of the new TA [technical analysis] books is 'Trend Following' by Michael Covel. Straightforward, easy to read, this book is rich in details about why trend following is such a successful strategy amongst some of the world's best-performing hedge funds."

Barry Ritholtz, The Big Picture

 

“A mandatory reference for anyone serious about alternative investments.”

--Jon Sundt, president and CEO, Altergris

 

"I think that Michael's Trend Following is an outstanding read from which all

investors can learn to trade markets better by limiting their risks and maximizing

their profits through a more disciplined approach to investments."

Marc Faber

Managing Director, Marc Faber Limited

Editor, Gloom, Boom & Doom Report

 

"I think the book did a superb job of covering the philosophy and thinking behind

trend following (basically why it works). You might call it the Market Wizards of

Trend Following."

Van K. Tharp, Ph.D.

Author of Trade Your Way to Financial Freedom

 

"Michael Covel does an excellent job of educating his readers about the little-known

opportunities available to them through one of the proven best hedge fund

strategies. This book is like gold to any smart investor."

Christian Baha

Superfund

 

"Michael Covel's book is the definitive guide to trend trading. Backed by real world

results from some of the biggest and best money managers in the United States, his

book will put you on the path to successful trend trading."

Larry Connors

TradingMarkets.com

 

"Michael Covel's Trend Following is a breakthrough book that captures the essence

of what really makes markets tick. Diligently researched and comprehensive in

scope, it will replace Market Wizards as the must-read bible for a new generation of

traders."

Jonathan Hoenig

Fox News Contributor

 

"Trend Following: Definitely required reading for the aspiring trader."

David S. Druz

Tactical Investment Management

 

"I think that this book documents a great deal of what has made Trend Following

Managers a successful part of the money management landscape (how they manage

risk and investment psychology). It serves as a strong educational justification on

why investors should consider using Trend Following Managers as a part of an

overall portfolio strategy."

Tom Basso

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

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.
