I developed analytical techniques that identify targets and turning points for any liquid stock or market in any time frame, primarily for analyzing S&Ps. I have been published or quoted in MarketWatch, Minyanville, CNBC, The New York Times, Trader Daily, Futures Magazine, and Technical Analysis of Stocks & Commodities, among others...

I publish my setups intraday on a blog at IfThenSignals.com, where I also host a live "charting room" webinar to graphically depict my patterns and targets in real-time.
Previously I was a Contributing Editor for optionMONSTER where I produced the Index Trader blog, providing intraday timing signals and targets in S&Ps and other futures markets. Prior to that, I founded AvidTrader.com in 1995, one of the original technical analysis web sites. Through AvidTrader, I launched the web's first free-access trader's chatroom in 1996 for technical analysis newcomers and experts from around the world to mingle throughout the trading day.
Through the chat forum, I produced and hosted an ongoing series of live interviews with many well-known chartists and technicians. My guests included John Bollinger who created Bollinger Bands, Gerald Appel, creator of MACD, Marc Chaikin who created the original Money Flow indicator, George Lane, creator of the Stochastic indicator, and Tom DeMark who is best known for his TD Sequential indicator. Other notable interviewees were John Murphy, Bill Williams, Peter Eliades, Linda Raschke, Van Tharp, Glenn Neely and Arch Crawford.
My analysis has been published or quoted in MarketWatch, CNBC, Minyanville, The New York Times, Trader Daily, Futures Magazine, and Technical Analysis of Stocks & Commodities, among others. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Park University and reside in the Kansas City area.
I am an established technical analyst and financial journalist, with a proven ability to identify profitable trading perspectives in all market environments.
In any capacity, I thrive in fast-paced conditions that demand quickly defining the most preferable available actions from imperfect and incomplete information – whether communicating those choices effectively, or deciding among them and then executing, all while the inputs remain fresh.
My broad industry experiences range from retail brokerage to trading advisory publisher; from market analyst to algorithm developer; from trader to educator and industry innovator. And perhaps most important, from novice investor to market professional. Backgrounds in each enable me to tailor my message for any audience.
From my first exposures to charting and technical analysis this discipline has rung true to me for assessing stocks and markets. I’ve since defined it as a common denominator that cuts across industries, markets, asset classes and regions by analyzing the influence of mass psychology on price.
Thousands of hours scanning hundreds of thousands of stock charts unlocked my eidetic memory for images, and forged it with a natural inclination to process data efficiently by organizing it into patterns. The result is an analysis that identifies the shifting perceptions and allocations among those who forecast economic and company financials. This edge adds basis points to tweaking the timing of entries and exits, and adds multiple points when forecasting imminent price inflection or acceleration.
My proprietary and bespoke analysis is based on a proprietary set of unique, robust, predictive analytical techniques and rule sets, which segment price action into usual and unusual behaviors – i.e. noise and signal. Their output efficiently and quickly forecasts any chart – be it equity, index or futures, over any time frame from intraday to weekly.
I assess market conditions to forecast intraday direction and targets for active markets and individual stocks. I maintain “bigger picture” perspectives that anticipate trend changes and duration. This analysis includes identifying risk control techniques, and price behaviors that will help to confirm whether a trade/trend is developing, or in jeopardy. I produce this research and idea flow simultaneously on multiple products, across multiple time horizons, throughout each trading day.
