Fritz Hottinger (a pseudonym) is a graduate of Northwestern University, with MBA from University of Chicago. While getting his MBA, he was fortunate to be trained under Harry Roberts (statistics) and Roger Ibbotson (stock market theory) when computers were in their infancy. These professors showed him the beginnings of stock market analysis by computer. He began writing his own programs on an Apple IIe. When Apple’s focus went to graphics and away from spreadsheets, he switched to IBM and Windows. He has been actively trading stocks & options since 1982. His proprietary program gave excellent SELL signals prior to the October crashes in ’87 and again in ’89. And both times he loaded up with OEX puts. Fritz came out of retirement in 2000 to launch a website of financial information for investors based on this original program. The site now serves investors and traders on 3 continents. He enjoys golf, trout fishing, grandchildren, and being married to his high-school sweetheart.
