Way of a Turtle
1. Trade with an edge : Find a trading strategy that will produce positive returns over the long run because it has positive expectation.
2. Manage risk : Control risk so that you can continue to trade or you may not be around to see the benfits of a positive expectation system.
3. Be consistent : Execute your plan consistently to achieve the positive expectation of your system.
4. Keep it simple : The core of our approach is simple - catch every trend. Two or three trades might account for all your profits, so dont miss a trend or you might kill your whole year. This is simple and easy to understand, not easy to do.
Elements of an edge

-Entry Signals : The algorithms that determine when to buy or sell to enter a trade.
-Exit Signals : The algorithms that determine when to sell or buy to exit a trade.
