Sol Palha is the head financial analyst at Tactical Investor. He is a self-taught Student of the Markets, having widely read conventional and non-conventional texts on all aspects of technical analysis, Mass Psychology and philosophy (as he believes it can be quite useful in terms of market analysis). He has been studying the markets for over 18 years. He combines mass psychology, technical analysis and a new field of study that he has pioneered, Esoteric Cycle Analysis to determine market tops and bottoms. Mass Psychology and Technical analysis is a deadly combination, and has enabled us to accurately determine Market tops and bottoms in advance of the actual event. One should not confuse topping and bottoming action, with trying to predict the actual top or bottom------- An endeavor best left to fools with plenty of time on their hands and an inordinate capacity to deal with pain and failure.

An astute researcher that has come to some brilliant conclusions on insignificant pieces of the Universe. In particular one little company called Antares Pharma. This is primarily due to owning share of the company way to long, because I knew way to much about ATRS. Never imagined the share price would have dropped into 2 buck range, as Oct 28, 2014. So it must be that investors do not know what ATRS is really up to? Figured, someone needs to step up and let the small investors know what the large investment firms know about Antares Pharma, because they have the research power. Therefore, Loko for the little investors...suggest you make use of it.....or lose it.... Donations are welcome, in shares of ATRS of course.....
Richard Moheban (aka Retired Aviator) earned a BBA in Finance, Investment & Banking from a national top ten (public) business school—the University of Wisconsin at Madison. He then went on to earn a BFA (with Honors) in 1992. After that, however, his one year of working in the corporate world was enough for him to realize that it was not his cup of tea. He decided he needed more freedom and daily variety than any Finance position could offer, so he went to work for himself.
Determined to somehow achieve financial independence without the grind, he worked as many as four part-time jobs concurrently to obtain seed cash for investing. He devoted much of his non-working time to studying investments and "real world" Economics (as opposed to the academic variety), refining several workable theories along the way. For years he plowed every spare nickel into investing. Using only his relatively modest sources of income as an investing base, over time he was able to multiply his savings and thus achieve his dream of retiring by his mid-forties in 2009. Today he enjoys pursuing a variety of recreational interests, researching, writing, and has several ideas in the works for new books. He has one book published to date.
Michael Ashton has been a recognized leader in developing the U.S. inflation derivatives market. He traded the first interbank U.S. CPI swaps in 2003 and, as a dealer, was a primary liquidity-provider in that market for two large banks. He represented about one-third of interbank swaps volume during his tenures at those firms. He invented and was the sole market-maker for the CME CPI Futures contract. He has written and spoken extensively about the use of inflation-indexed products for hedging real exposures, and has written more broadly in a commentary format about the rates markets and macroeconomy. Mr. Ashton is currently the managing principal at Enduring Investments LLC. His comments on this site and others are not posted in that role, and no opinions of his should be construed to be recommendations of or to reflect the views of his employer. He recently published "What's Wrong With Money? The Biggest Bubble of All."
