Program Info

The program is based on the Original Turtle rules. It employs a long-term version of trend-following utilizing channel breakouts. It has returned well over two multi-year simulations and is performing well in live trading. The minimum is high due to the fact that the system only risks 2% of the account value on an initial position.
