Do you ever think the stories you hear about great trading, and the gains produced, sound like luck? Do you ever wonder if there is a real method and philosophy behind the success stories? The concepts condensed into Trend Commandments were gleaned from Michael Covel's 15 years of pulling back the curtain on great trend following traders. It is a one of a kind money making experience that forever lays to rest the notion that successful trading is akin to winning the lottery. Winning has a formula, as does losing. Michael Covel nails both head on. Getting rich is a fight; make no mistake about it, but at least now with Trend Commandments you have a primer that allows you to crack the code of the winners.

"An outstanding book [Trend Commandments] for anyone who wants to become rich by trading markets. Today, government regulations and fiscal and monetary policies are badly distorting financial markets. Covel accurately explains why, in this 'manipulated' financial environment, you should never expect markets to move as you wish or expect. Rather, disregard your fundamental beliefs and simply follow the trend. Highly recommended!"

"If you are even thinking of a career in trading, put down all the other books. Buy this one [Trend Commandments]. Read it. Now you can start your career."

James Altucher

Managing Director, Formula Capital

"Fire up the barbecue. Michael Covel skewers the sacred cows of Wall Street with tasty bite-sized bits of the truth about what it really takes to succeed in trading and life. Wide-ranging, irreverent, revealing, eminently quotable, and right on the money."

Charles Faulkner

Market Wizard Trading Coach

"A rapidly moving, non-technical, and outside-the-box effort that smartly captures the essentials of trend following."

Peter Borish

Chairman and CEO, Computer Trading Corp

"Michael Covel's Trend Commandments is full of practical wisdom in bite-size portions on the benefits of trend trading--written in a straightforward storytelling format. It's definitely one to add to your financial bookshelf."

David Stendahl

Signal Financial Group

"Michael Covel is the very best at explaining the concepts of successful trend following in plain English. I'm certain you'll be a successful trader if you follow the ideas he outlines in Trend Commandments. This book (and his previous two!) are required reading for new employees in my office."

Steve Sjuggerud


"Investors have experienced two bear markets in the last decade. This has led to rising volatility, uncertainty, and investor angst. For some it has been a lost decade, but for trend traders it has been a decade of opportunity. Trend Commandments helps you focus on what matters most: the trend of the markets, whether up or down. You can profit from either. Trend Commandments is essential reading for those who have the desire to thrive and survive in an era of fast-paced trending


Jim Puplava

CEO, Chief Investment Strategist, PFS Group

"Buy and hold has been a difficult investment system for investors for a decade. In Trend Commandments, Covel challenges readers to think differently and question their beliefs about market 'truths' ingrained in them for years. Forewarned, you just may never see the world the same way again."

Mebane Faber

Cambria Investment Management

"Covel's Trend Commandments offers a breezy rumination on what is right about trend following and what is wrong about conventional trading approaches."

Jack Schwager

Author of Market Wizards and Schwager on Futures series

"Trend Commandments is a compelling read taking on serious issues in an entertaining format. The chapter of 'Inefficient Markets' is a must read, and I'm still laughing at the 'Intoxication' chapter--because in truth there is humor."

Mark H. Melin

Author of High Performance Managed Futures

Director, Managed Funds, Peregrine Financial Group

"Successful traders need rules and the rules in this book are better than most since they are from the most successful traders in the world. Catch my drift? To be successful you must learn and apply these rules. I rate this book a 3x--as to be read at least three times."

Timothy Sykes

Author of An American Hedge Fund

"In Trend Commandments Covel writes, 'Golf Legend Jack Nicklaus is famous for saying: 'Don't be too proud to take a lesson. I'm not. Learn the fundamentals of the game and stick to them.' Every beginning or experienced trend follower should take lessons from this book and your previous books. I have been a trend follower for over 40 years and I am not too proud to take lessons."
