Praise for The Trend Following Bible

"I like Andy's statement that trading has to fit one's personality. Everyone is different. I've met quite a few successful traders over the twenty years I've been trading professionally. Ironically not one person uses the same system. What Andy does capture are the true building blocks of building a successful trading system."

Praise for The Trend Following Bible

"I like Andy's statement that trading has to fit one's personality. Everyone is different. I've met quite a few successful traders over the twenty years I've been trading professionally. Ironically not one person uses the same system. What Andy does capture are the true building blocks of building a successful trading system."
—Ken Kinkopf, President, Kinkopf Capital Management, LLC

"I have been registered in the futures industry since 1987, and the information on trend following provided by Andrew Abraham is some of the most comprehensive and easy to follow that I have seen. Andrew provides pure information with no hidden agendas. He does not hide the risk nor simplify the work a trader needs to do. Discipline and patience, two of the most key elements in money management, are stressed. I would highly recommend that anyone serious about trading should read this book."
—Chuck Bohm, Pioneer Futures Inc.

"Where I feel that Andy's insight is so valuable is that he is an active practitioner. He gives us views, and posts articles, that highlight the discipline and self-belief needed to be successful in this arena. Trend following sounds so simple; looking at a chart is easy to say, in hindsight, that we would have bought there and sold here. Now tell me where we are going tomorrow. Andy's blog shows us that trend following is about percentages. Increasing your chances of calling the future direction of a market correctly over time, and having an exit plan in place before one takes a position. I encourage anyone with exposure to the markets, regardless of experience, to read this!"
—Benjamin Smith, ADM Investor Services International

"The best investors are not afraid to share their trading plan with others as they know that there is no secret recipe in all this, that risk management and discipline are really 95% of the battle. Clearly Andy is not afraid of providing his."
—Gerald Rehn, Principal, Rehn Capital Management, LLC

"Andy gives a structured, simple, and concise way to understand trend following and, most importantly, the discipline and patience this strategy needs in order to work. I really enjoyed his personal views and risk management tools that have kept him in trading for many years."
—Eduardo Frid, EF Financial Services

"Right on Andy!"
—Todd Miller, Availeth Capital, LLC

"Andy's explanation of trend following is extremely informative and should be very useful for any individuals who hope to begin trading in a trend following strategy. One of my favorite aspects of his book is that he is relaying the message that trend following and trading are, indeed, work. So many individuals have the wrong impression entirely as to what it is that a trader or trend follower does with his or her time. As with any other career path, trading takes time, research, and extraordinary effort in order to be successful. I would highly recommend that any individual interested in trend following read Andy's blog as well. The information is accurate and effective."
—John David McDonnell, RCO Financial, Inc.
