The Curtis Faith Story
The real Curtis Faith story is tragic and resembles nothing like his autobiographical accounts. The Complete TurtleTrader first exposed the real Curtis Faith story, a story that reveals the extent to which false legends can be created on Wall Street.
The details, beyond the book, are overwhelming: Multiple Government documents and depositions, a Faith family member, other Turtles, performance records, direct interviews with Faith’s former business associates, a former employee and Faith’s own words–all show him different than his representations. For example, Faith declared in 2012:
“I am out of money. None at all. Well, $27 in my pocket. No more anywhere. My wife doesn’t work. I’ve spent every last dime working on trying to figure out a way to make a difference and now I’m left with $27. That’s a twenty and seven ones, two of them are pretty rough. A twenty and seven ones. And that is all it will take to change the world. What did Jesus say about the mustard grain. Hell, I’m Curtis Michael Faith, if I don’t have Faith who does?”
For further example, the following two depositions describe how Curtis Faith’s firm Acceleration Capital imploded: Deposition One and Deposition Two. Curtis Faith’s then partner Plyam explains how he and Faith met, what type of trading system they used, the ownership breakdown of Acceleration Capital, Faith’s background, the management fees, how much they put up to start Acceleration Capital and Faith’s subsequent disappearance. Further, a male employee was stealing money from Acceleration Capital to buy trips, buy cars, to pay for a gastric bypass surgery, to buy gifts for his boyfriend and to buy barbie dolls on eBay (Many files obtained through the U.S. Freedom of Information requests).
Acceleration Capital permanently surrendered registration with the CFTC via settlement in January 2007 for what the CFTC believed were violations of the Commodity Exchange Act.
