This book is entertaining (and as a side note, it has made me money in the cryptocurrency market)
Reviewed in the United States on June 22, 2016
This book is for non-traders. You don't need to have any technical knowledge of trading to understand it and find it highly entertaining and informative.
I recommend it, If anything, to learn about Richard Dennis and his reality TV style antics in the 80s futures markets.
He basically put a craigslist ad up saying that anyone could apply to trade with his system of rules, no experience required, and he’d give them all 1 million dollars of his money to trade with.
The majority of the people had no trading experience, they knew nothing about the markets they were trading in nor how to trade … but they were very successful, some of them are still trading today with their own billion dollar funds.
While reading the book in 2013, it just so happened to be around when bitcoin popped. I started using his rules to trade altcoins and I made a bunch of money following his strategy laid out in the book!
I've actually been using this book as a guideline to trade cryptocurrencies since then on and off, and I've netted well over 6 figures trading the turtle trading method.
The author, Michael Covel has a great podcast as well. Don't bother with any of Covel's other books - Trend Following, Trend Commandments, etc are just rehashes of the same story. There's no solid strategy in any of his other books. THIS is the one you want to get.
If you don't get this book you should at least subscribe to his podcast, in fact, in Covel's other audiobooks, he includes about 5 hours of his podcast episodes at the end ... just skip buying the other books and listen to the podcast episodes with the Tom Basso and other traders.
