About Russell Sands

Russell Sands is a veteran futures and foreign currency trader who has been trading the markets for over 25 years.

Russell learned how to trade in 1984 from legendary trader, Richard Dennis. Richard was born into a working class family. He grew up to become the best futures trader in the world. He turned a small $400 family loan into $200 million dollars. Richard believed that trading could be taught so he decided to prove it to himself and to his colleagues. He recruited 14 people – some who had no trading experience at all.

“I’ll grow traders just like they grow turtles in Singapore,” he said. Thus the name – Turtle Traders.

Richard placed a ‘help wanted’ ad in the Wall Street Journal, Barron’s and The New York Times. Nearly 3,000 respondents were narrowed down to 80 interviewees, and ultimately 14 people from various walks of life including an actor, security guard, and a kid just out of high school.

Russell Sands was one of the fortunate 14 people who were selected by Richard Dennis to learn his strategy.

Russell trained with Richard Dennis from 1983 to 1984, and during that time, the Turtles were taught basic trend following, specific channel-breakout rules, and proven money-management strategies.

Russell learned to trade the markets. Today he is currently one of two original Turtle Traders who has permission to teach Richard Dennis’ original Turtle Trading strategies.

Russell holds an MBA from NYU. He is also a 1st degree black belt and has won the coveted World Amateur Backgammon Championship Plimpton Cup. Russell has also been barred from many Las Vegas and international casinos for his successful Black Jack strategies!

Russell currently makes a living trading his own money, trading futures and Forex markets for other investors, and conducting educational trading seminars.
