Program Info

The program is trend following in nature - based on the original Turtle trading rules. It utilizes futures contracts and the selling of option premium to assist in management of risk. It tracks nineteen different markets across eight commodity sectors. Initial risk on any individual trade approximates 2%. Profit potential is open-ended.

Company Info

Atlantic-Pacific Trading Group was established in January 2010 for the purposes of testing the original Turtle trading rules. After running three lengthy simulations that yielded outsized returns we decided to offer our program to the public. We have enhanced the original system used by the Turtles in an effort to minimize risk and have begun trading real money as of March 1, 2012.

Manager Info

Mr. Augustine has been trading the futures markets since 1996. After speaking with a trader profiled in Market Wizards he decided that he did not want to earn his living as a commissioned salesperson. After much research he came upon the original Turtle rules as taught to several people by Richard Dennis and William Eckhardt. He and his partner Tim Zurick adapted these rules by adding risk management parameters that did not exist in the original version. They have used the combination of trend following and the selling of option premium to manage risk to develop the Enhanced Turtle Trader Program - now avaiable to the public. They have been trading client money since March 1, 2012.
