Tom Basso is a living legend and Mike Covel is one of the most interesting and intelligent authors I know. The two together make this book a must read for every investor. --Mark Minervini, U.S. Investing Champion and author of Trade Like a Stock Market Wizard
Tom Basso was one of the first traders I modelled 30 years ago and he was part of our first school to train good traders. In my opinion, Tom is one of the strongest traders in The New Market Wizards in his understanding of market psychology, trend following and how to position size to meet your objectives. --Van K. Tharp, founder and president of the Van Tharp Institute
Anyone can make a lot of money without the trend following mindset, but you will never keep it. This mindset is not everything, but it's pretty close. Great work Mike and Tom! --Larry Hite, hedge fund manager and author of The Rule
Covel does it again. Another great book that tells the compelling story of rules-based trend following trading and the results of maximum diversification, taking small losses, and letting those profits run. A timeless, ageless reminder to all of us that we can't predict the future and that our intuitions and emotions are holding us back from success. Thank you, Michael. --Jerry Parker, Chairman and Executive Officer, Chesapeake Capital
