Market Technician Market Turning Points

When I was a stock broker years ago, a friend introduced me to technical analysis of the market and it is not an exaggeration to say that I fell in love with this approach! Ever since then, it has become an increasingly important part of my life, and I frequently spend 8 or more hours per day in front of the computer studying and analyzing charts. I have often gotten up in the middle of the night to test out an idea which suddenly popped into my mind.

I have studied the works of Wyckoff, Edwards & Magee, Edward J. Dewey (cycles) and many others, but one of my most profitable undertaking has probably been to study Point & Figure charting, which I find invaluable in analyzing stocks and indices. If I were restricted to one methodology, this is the one that I would choose. I currently maintain hand-drawn charts of some of the major indices. Technical analysis is my passion and I am constantly discovering ways to refine and consolidate the information I find most reliable and pertinent.

This well-rounded background has given me what I feel to be a special insight into the stock market, facilitating the recognition of meaningful patterns and the ‘turning points’ in all trends, whether they be short or long term. I also appreciate the value of channeling as a form of analysis to distinguish between the various trends and to determine when they begin and when they end.

I feel very comfortable discussing the stock market and passing on meaningful information to others. My subscribers include individuals and money managers throughout the world, and my Newsletters are currently published on several financial sites, here and abroad.
