The "Turtle" trading program started by Richard Dennis is, by any measure, one of the greatest success stories in the entire history of trading. Here's a brief background: Richard Dennis was a successful (he turned a $400 family loan into $200 million!) Chicago trader and money manager who firmly believed that successful trading methods could be taught. His partner disagreed. Dennis then went out and recruited 14 people - some of whom had NO trading experience - and taught them his trading methods. He called them his "Turtles" and, after a brief training period, they went on to become masters of the markets.
