In the early 80's, fable has it that two extremely successful traders had a debate.
Are great traders born with natural killer instincts?
Or, could certain types of individuals be taught to become winning traders?
They placed an ad in the Wall St. Journal and from over thousands of applicants, about 20 were chosen for an intensive 2-week training program. These students were
called 'Turtles' after comparing the process of training traders to raising turtles on a farm in Singapore that the founder had visited, or so the legend says.
