A recent interview with Michael Covel on Bloomberg Radio (6.5 MB MP3 audio file) about trend following. "Please read [Trend Following] whether you think you have an interest in trend following or are not quite sure. I guarantee you will be happy that you took the time. It, of course, covers how trend following works, how it's done, and who can do it, and it doesn't beat around the bush with generalities. Again, get this book. Covel has hit a homerun with it." Gail Osten, Editor-in-Chief Stocks, Futures & Options Magazine Official Journal for Personal Investing in Stocks, Futures and Options "A mandatory reference for anyone serious about alternative investments." Jon Sundt, President and CEO of Altegris "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, CEO, Superfund "A most interesting book -- definitely a 'must have' on your shelf. Pull out the plastic and get it!...Trend Following is well constructed, well written and an excellent distillation of the research undertaken by the author. Backed up by trading 'legends' like Ed Seykota, it convincingly argues that the most successful trading systems are based on trend following...While you may read the book in bed, especially the first time, it is best read at a desk with a notepad handy. While seeming to come from the perspective of technical analysis it is still a very good book on trading psychology...The book is both a great read and an insightful textbook for all traders and investors."

How did John W. Henry quietly become rich enough to buy the Boston Red Sox? How have traders like Keith Campbell, Bill Dunn, Jerry Parker, and Salem Abraham consistently generated immense wealth in bull and bear markets? The key is trend following -- the only strategy proven to consistently make money.

Covel presents more than a decade's worth of data: even more backtested trend following results. Covel thoroughly debunks misinformation and failed advice. This timely book capitalizes on today's intense volatility and uncertainty to give investors what they're desperately searching for: a strategy that really works.
