    hi folks,

    how much did those turtles make on their capital?

    I heard some made 80% per year with big draw downs.

    I dont want to knock down their performance in any way but look at it this way:

    with their own money they made about 9.2% and its only because they were leveraged so high, that the other 70.8% was possible (I think the margin is about 11.5% of the position).

    Not much room for error if you`re behind your computer all day, get in and out of trades and only make 9.2% on your capital.

    What is your opinion?
