Dan Carty is a full time trader who has worked on a few trading desks over the last several years with a large focus on trading commodities, currencies and futures indexes. His specialty is the S&P 500 Futures and related indices at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. Over the last few years he has begun to analyze equities that are affected by these markets and apply the same successful technical rules he uses in the commodities world to the equity world. The Traders Insights Blog attempts to apply a trading view of the markets versus the academic point of view that many analysts use these days as they are not on the trading desk gaining a wide view of the marketplace. Dan actively trades within the commodity markets and manages an amount of money for clients. The information on the site is to provide the investment professional an alternative point of view; one that hopefully provides for successful trading when used with other sources.
