One bite-size concept and illustration at a time, Covel shows how you can get ahead in an age of nonstop financial crisis and deepening instability. Winning means the right techniques, psychology, philosophy, and even skepticism--it’s all part of the learning, then earning process.

Trend Commandments delivers real moneymaking insights developed and cultivated from 15 years of behind-the-scenes research--intellectual access you can’t fake. It’s the most digestible and one-of-a-kind trend trading book ever written.

  • Reap the spoils when domestic and global markets crash...
    and find big waves to ride even when people aren’t panicking

  • Don’t waste time trying to predict the future...
    learn how to think and react to what is actually happening

  • Decipher the ‘noise’ in a sea of competing voices...
    let go of ‘value,’ mutual funds, the Buffett legend, and Goldline (to name a few)

  • Listen to the market. It always tells the truth...
    and the “price” is the only true trading reality you can trust

Anyone who has read anyof Michael W. Covel's books knows from the outset that this newest book TREND COMMANDMENTS is going to be not only a learning experience but a very supportive tome of advice and reassurance about a subjct few of us understand. Having read 'The Complete TurtleTrader: How 23 Novice Investors Became Overnight Millionaires' this reader jumped at the chance to see what else Covel has up his sleeve. Trend Trading may seem like yet another of those big money terms that leaves the bulk of us on the outside. But as presented by Covel it is understandable as a concept and accessible as a means of approaching the money market. By definition, 'Trend following is an investment strategy that tries to take advantage of long-term moves that seem to play out in various markets. The strategy aims to work on the market trend mechanism and take benefit from both sides of the market, enjoying the profits from the ups and downs of the stock or futures markets. Traders who use this approach can use current market price calculation, moving averages and channel breakouts to determine the general direction of the market and to generate trade signals. Traders who employ a trend following strategy do not aim to forecast or predict specific price levels; they simply jump on the trend and ride it.' And that is exactly what Covel encourages in this well-written book. He offers insights into the strategies that the big moneymakers use to be true winners 'grounded in real performance results and not squishy opinions.' In these chaotic eonomic times it is comforting to read a book by an informed man who tells it like it is and follows those realities with his own brand of optimism and self-sufficiency. the book reads well, does not bog down with data charts that are page flippers for novices, but steadily stands behind our insecurities and creates positive transformations.
