Rating: 3/5

Russell feels that purely mechanical systems, no matter how rigorously tested, still leave room for the personal judgment of an experienced trader. He points out those areas and techniques where he feels the trader should exercise that judgment, sometimes to optimize the potential profit from a trade and sometimes to prevent the trader from following his system.

Russell feels that people can, and always will, trade better than machines provided they put forth the effort. Russell explains why trend-following works and why it will continue to work in the future. He points out what he feels are the dangers and shortcomings of other types of trading methodologies, all from the viewpoint of statistical analysis and standard probability theory.

Russell shows you how the Turtles were taught to define and exploit trends in the futures markets through the use of both classical and proprietary technical analysis. He gives you some ground rules on how to devise your own customized trading system, including how to interpret computer testing results and how to avoid the dangers of optimization or curve fitting in an attempt to create a profitable and workable system.
