    Keep searching. There is a great deal on the web. It is not a two minute job. I'd post some links but Magna would ban me. Besides I don't want to influence your final answer by spoon feeding you just one side of the story!

    Well if you think it's not true. No one can force you to believe. Thanks for the laugh. I suspect your next post will be "does trend following really make $".

    What kind of 'hard' evidence do you need? Do you require one of them to come and kick your ass to prove they're real? :D

    Covel is trying to milk the turtle concept for all its worth. And he is NOT an original or subsequent 'turtle' (those taught by the original ones). In protest, one of the original turtles put up a FREE website which made public exactly the concept from top to bottom. If you search in the archives here you'll find the link.

    It was a small ad. Not a full pager. LOL. I think it was in 1983. I remember it well. I know some guy's who responded. They received a questionnaire. The only question I remember was: "you're in a taxi going to the CBOT and the driver remarks "beans are really bullish", should you sell beans?

    I remember the answer was something to the effect of, the cabbie shouldn't effect your gameplan because we don't know whether he's a good or bad soybean forecaster.

    The OP seems to be obviously setting a situation to bash the turtles. I doubt they care....they are probably too busy relaxing in their estates.

    Yes, I think so too.

    In fact, this thread is beginning to sound like "Some more journalistic pretensions by MarketSurfer".:D :D :D
