What Are People Saying?

"An outstanding book [Trend Commandments] for anyone who wants to become rich by trading markets. Today, government regulations and fiscal and monetary policies are badly distorting financial markets. Covel accurately explains why, in this 'manipulated' financial environment, you should never expect markets to move as you wish or expect. Rather, disregard your fundamental beliefs and simply follow the trend. Highly recommended!"

James Altucher
Managing Director, Formula Capital

"Fire up the barbecue. Michael Covel skewers the sacred cows of Wall Street with tasty bite-sized bits of the truth about what it really takes to succeed in trading and life. Wide-ranging, irreverent, revealing, eminently quotable, and right on the money."

Charles Faulkner
Market Wizard Trading Coach

"A rapidly moving, non-technical, and outside-the-box effort that smartly captures the essentials of trend following."

Peter Borish
Chairman and CEO, Computer Trading Corp

"Michael Covel's Trend Commandments is full of practical wisdom in bite-size portions on the benefits of trend trading--written in a straightforward storytelling format. It's definitely one to add to your financial bookshelf."

David Stendahl
Signal Financial Group

"Michael Covel is the very best at explaining the concepts of successful trend following in plain English. I'm certain you'll be a successful trader if you follow the ideas he outlines in Trend Commandments. This book (and his previous two!) are required reading for new employees in my office."

Steve Sjuggerud

"Investors have experienced two bear markets in the last decade. This has led to rising volatility, uncertainty, and investor angst. For some it has been a lost decade, but for trend traders it has been a decade of opportunity. Trend Commandments helps you focus on what matters most: the trend of the markets, whether up or down. You can profit from either. Trend Commandments is essential reading for those who have the desire to thrive and survive in an era of fast-paced trending markets."

Jim Puplava
CEO, Chief Investment Strategist, PFS Group

"Buy and hold has been a difficult investment system for investors for a decade. In Trend Commandments, Covel challenges readers to think differently and question their beliefs about market 'truths' ingrained in them for years. Forewarned, you just may never see the world the same way again."

Mebane Faber
Cambria Investment Management

"Covel's Trend Commandments offers a breezy rumination on what is right about trend following and what is wrong about conventional trading approaches."

Jack Schwager

Why Get the Book?

Do you ever think the stories you hear about great trading, and the gains produced, sound like luck? Do you ever wonder if there is a real method and philosophy behind the success stories?

It is a one of a kind money making experience that forever lays to rest the notion that successful trading is akin to winning the lottery. Winning has a formula, as does losing.
