PR9.NET May 23, 2007 - Upper Saddle River, NJ – For more than 30 years, one trading strategy has consistently delivered extraordinary profits in bull and bear markets alike: Trend Following. Just ask the billionaire traders who rely on ittraders like John W. Henry, whose profits bought the Boston Red Sox.
In Trend Following: How Great Traders make Millions in Up or Down Markets, New Expanded Edition (ISBN: 0131345508, $17.99, April 2007) by Michael Covel, readers will meet the "underground" network of traders like Henry and discover exactly how to use their trend following techniques to build a portfolio. The New Expanded Edition includes more than 100 pages of easy-to-understand performance charts not available in earlier editions.
"The concepts that make up Trend Following should be experienced to be understood completely, a tough prerequisite," acknowledges Covel. "We found it helpful to compare Trend Following to baseball, a sport all of us have experienced either passively or actively to one degree or another. I've always known that baseball and Trend Following have much in common, but it wasn't until the past few years that sportswriters and financial writers started acknowledging their similarities. Ed Seykota, Bill Dunn, and John W. Henry swing for the fence. They hit home runs in their trading performance. They are the Babe Ruths of Trend Following."
Covel introduces readers to fundamental concepts and techniques that reveal why market prices contain all the information investors need and how to understand price movements well enough to profit from them. He also shows even more back-tested trend following results, so readers can gain even greater confidence in the method. 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.
