If you do - could you email it to me or post it here? I am not an Excel expert - I have started to create it but I have ran out of time.

What's this turtle trading formula I've heard mentioned before? Is this the same turtle thing refered to in Market Wizards?

It is a money management formula. I have the code (it was posted here too) so the search would tell you where... Also weath lab has some turtle systems. I wonder if I could get a copy of the VB code for MS Excel? I can't code in VB and my schedule is crazy now. Two jobs, a 2 year old a web-site and no money to hire someone. The system(not quite complete in Easy Language) is as below; ___________________________________________________ Variable: ATR(0), Acct(0), MaxAcct(0), DDown(0), Risk(0), Risk2(0), Contr(0); ATR = AvgTrueRange(15); Acct = 100000 + NetProfit; {This is the account size you want to put in} If Acct > MaxAcct then MaxAcct = Acct; If MaxAcct > 1 then DDown = Acct / MaxAcct; Risk = Acct * .02;{Per trade risk by Decimal} Risk2 = Risk; {Risk of Ruin} If DDown <= 0.9 and DDown > 0.8 then Risk2 = Risk2 * 0.8; If DDown <= 0.8 and DDown > 0.7 then Risk2 = Risk2 * 0.64; If DDown <= 0.7 and DDown > 0.75 then Risk2 = Risk2 * 0.5; If DDown <= 0.75 and DDown > 0.6 then Risk2 = Risk2 * 0.4; If DDown <= 0.6 and DDown > 0.5 then Risk2 = Risk2 * 0.32; If DDown <= 0.5 then Begin; Alert("Busted!!"); Risk2 = 0; End; Contr = Risk2 / ((2 * ATR) * BigPointValue); {Entry} Variable: PLFactor(-1), InitContr(0), InitATR(0), LongFS(-1), ShortFS(-1); Condition1 = CurrentBar > 0 and High > HighestFC(High, 20)[1]; Condition2 = CurrentBar > 0 and Low < LowestFC(Low, 20)[1]; If PositionProfit > 0 then PLFactor = 1; If PositionProfit < 0 then PLFactor = -1; If MarketPosition <= 0 and Condition1 and LongFS = -1 Then Begin; If PLFactor = -1 then Begin; Buy("L-Entry") Contr Contracts at Close + 1 Point Stop; InitContr = Contr; InitATR = ATR; ShortFS = -1; End; If PLFactor = 1 then Begin; ShortFS = -1; LongFS = 1; PLFactor = -1; End; End; If MarketPosition >= 0 and Condition2 and ShortFS = -1 Then Begin; If PLFactor = -1 then Begin; Sell("S-Entry") Contr Contracts at Close - 1 Point Stop; InitContr = Contr; InitATR = ATR; LongFS = -1; End; If PLFactor = 1 then Begin; LongFS = -1; ShortFS = 1; PLFactor = -1; End; End; Condition8 = CurrentBar > 0 and High > HighestFC(High, 50)[1]; Condition9 = CurrentBar > 0 and Low < LowestFC(Low, 50)[1]; If MarketPosition <= 0 and LongFS = 1 and Condition8 then Begin; Buy("L-Entry-FS") Contr Contracts at Close + 1 Point Stop; InitContr = Contr; InitATR = ATR; LongFS = -1; End; If MarketPosition >= 0 and ShortFS = 1 and Condition9 then Begin;; Sell("S-Entry-FS") Contr Contracts at Close - 1 Point Stop; InitContr = Contr; InitATR = ATR; ShortFS = -1; End; {Pyramid} Condition3 = MarketPosition = 1 and CurrentBar > 0 and High > Highest(High, 50)[1]; Condition4 = Marketposition = -1 and CurrentBar > 0 and Low < Lowest(Low, 50)[1]; Condition5 = ATR < (InitATR * 6); Condition6 = CurrentEntries <= 1; Condition7 = OpenPositionProfit >= (CurrentEntries * (InitATR * 0.5) * BigPointValue); If Condition4 and Condition5 and Condition6 and Condition7 then Begin; If Contr < InitContr then Sell("S-Pyramid") Contr Contracts at EntryPrice(0) - ((InitATR * 0.5)-1 Point) Stop Else Sell("S-Pyramid.") InitContr Contracts at EntryPrice(1) - ((InitATR * 0.5)- 1 Point) Stop; End;} {Stops} VariableyraCont(0); If CurrentEntries > 0 then PyraCont = CurrentContracts / CurrentEntries; If CurrentEntries = 1 then ExitLong("2 ATR EL") at EntryPrice(0) - (InitATR * 2) Stop; If CurrentEntries = 1 then ExitShort("2 ATR ES") at EntryPrice(0) + (InitATR * 2) Stop; If Low < LowestFC(Low, 10)[1] then ExitLong("Rev BrkOut EL") at Close - 1 Point Stop; If High > HighestFC(High, 10)[1] then ExitShort("Rev BrkOut ES") at Close + 1 Point Stop; ExitLong("RangeStop EL") LowestFC(Low, 10) - 1 Point Stop; ExitShort("RangeStop ES") Highest(High, 10) + 1 Point Stop; If CurrentEntries <= 1 and OpenPositionProfit < 0 and BarsSinceEntry(0) >= 10 then ExitLong("10 day EL") at Open; If CurrentEntries <= 1 and OpenPositionProfit < 0 and BarsSinceEntry(0) >= 10 then ExitShort("10 day ES") at Open;

uh, this looks outstanding... what do you do with it?, in terms of trading? is this a decision before entering trades methodology? is this a management of trades methodology?

Hey, It's my written code!!! ah well... I gave it out to the public anyways... It's nice to know it's helping people! Woo HOo.....!!!!

I just noticed that you're the guy who wrote the E-book with the virus inside! (I wasted 2 hours to get rid of the virus with all the scans and computer maintenance!!! ARRRGGGHHH!!!) Didn't you have the book by Russell Sands like 7 years ago? Are you going to include the Excel in the E-book package? Well, none of my business...
