Recent Twist of Turtle Brand: EA for $299

with one comment

I’ve a confession to make: I don’t believe that so called “Turtle Trading Rules” work anymore. I’ve tested them myself. But the “brand” still gets promoted …

Recently I spotted an offer to buy Turtle Trader Expert Advisor (EA) for $299. This is so 80’s. I wouldn’t buy it and do not suggest anybody else to buy it. Not because the number of trades is too low to be statistically significant or because I’ve done my own back-testing and have all the reasons to question the performance claim.

But just because today none should trust “packaged” trading system product.

The way it’s done today is you put your system (if its any good) on zulutrade.com or collective2.com  or covestor.com for independent verification and ranking.  Then prospective customers can evaluate it and, if they like it,  subscribe to it or buy EA.

  1. In turtle trading system, is there a way to mitigate the impact when you roll-over the position from the current month futures to the next month future series. Otherwise the returns can just vanish with close to 40-50 bp impact on the trade when you roll-over.
