Scott Nystrom, Ph.D. is the Editor of the Gold Stock Strategist newsletter. Dr. Nystrom spent 25 years pouring over economic and financial data, crunching numbers, writing economic policy briefs, and authoring complex studies while working at the White House Office of Management and Budget, the U.S. Congress, in academia, and the private sector. He taught microeconomics, financial analysis, and health economics courses at graduate business schools and to senior Congressional staff. Dr. Nystrom has testified before Congress on the unintended economic effects of government action. Decision makers want to know what he is thinking. Over the past 20 years and as a self directed investor, he has applied his extensive skills to his personal investments with great success. Dr. Nystrom advocates and uses a top-down/bottom up, sector rotation investment approach. This method involves identifying: (1) global economic and financial trends—the “top down,” (2) growth sectors, (3) undervalued companies in the favored sector based on fundamental analysis—the “bottom up.” As high growth sectors rotate, he moves assets into the latest favored sector. Dr. Nystrom explains, “My investment approach is like surfing. You need to get on the wave while it is building and move off the wave before it crests. The gold bull market is building right now and that is why I think it is time for savvy investors to begin adding gold producing stocks to their portfolio.”

I started getting into the stock market at the young age of 13. I have been determined ever since then to learn how to make money in the stock market. By the end of high school I was known has the stock market “kid.” For my graduating class my teachers created a new award for one student to be awarded each year due to my passion in the markets. I am proud to be my high school’s first Warren Buffet Award Winner.
My reputation continued in college as have tried to help others learn what I know. I became President of our school’s Financial Management Association, Treasurer of my fraternity Sigma Alpha Epsilon, and also Treasurer of the Inter Fraternity Council. Through the power of leadership I have continued to help others learn the basics of the markets.
I have traded full time using financial derivatives which was very lucrative until the recent market turbulence. I have developed additional risk management rules that adapt to six sigma type events which I share with those close to me. I am now trading again full time with a focus on risk management, profit & loss, and statistical management. Trading is my passion so I strive to utilize 110% of my potential through the continuous commitment to the innovation of the portfolio management profession. I earned my Bachelors Degree in Business Administration as a finance major in 2009.
I now own my own market research firm Shane Edmund Group LLC (www.shaneedmund.com) and help with my father's company in business development/operations management involving the quality end of high-tech manufacturing applications (www.accutechmeasurement.com).
