In July I wrote about the nearly one dozen speakers at my upcoming Las Vegas conference, but I held back a few people who weren’t 100% sure they could make it.
Two of the most experienced traders and businesspeople that you’ll ever meet have now confirmed to speak and we’re 85% sold out already, just days after launching this page with all the conference details.
First up is the grandmaster of Trend Following, Michael Covel, who literally wrote the book on the subject, with this award-winning masterpiece that has been translated into untold languages, even aliens read it, as it’s one of the best selling financial books ever written.
Heck, even Paris Hilton read his latest book as practice for learning words with more than two-syllables (rumor has it that it worked!)
See his full biography here, but know that Michael is regarded as the world’s foremost expert on this proven trading strategy that has created nearly a dozen billionaires, most notably john W. Henry, owner of the Red Sox…and forget about my little Miss Penny Stock competition, check out this cryptkeeper and his wife:
Let that picture inspire you to learn trend following as a strategy! I wish I had the patience for it, but I definitely do not, but I’m SO proud to bring Michael Covel in talk about this fascinating subject and his truly unique stories of what he’s learned talking and hanging out many of these billionaire traders.
I asked all my speakers 3 questions, and Michael is the only one to have gotten back to me so far despite being one of the richest, most successful and busiest of them all which says a lot about him and his answers are short but very to the point and useful:
1. What is the one thing you’ve done that you’re most proud of?
Most proud of being an entrepreneur. I was not “centrally planned” by a State.
2. What’s the best lesson/s you’ve learned through your business/stock market experiences?
An early one from an early mentor (paraphrasing): “Everyone gets what they want from life and markets.” That means if you are out of shape and broke–look in the mirror.
3. What is the single greatest opportunity right now for people to profit from?
Single greatest opportunity is to put oneself in position to win from “asymmetric bets” or situations where you can risk little to make a lot with favorable odds. In my mind that is best practiced and achieved through trend following trading. Said another way? When markets make the next random jump, the next unexpected leap, are you prepared to profit from the outlier swan in a big way?
