I am a hardcore Electrical Engineer by profession (worked at Texas Instruments, Dallas, TX in that field), who since the last 20 years has been involved with stocks and options trading in the US markets. I am one of the original day traders, when Internet trading came along in 1996-1998. My blog is www.sanjayjohn.com.
I'm a professor and data scientist who has developed scorecards to detect fraudulent bank transactions. As an investor I look for fraudulent stocks and other stocks that aren't what they seem.
Somewhere along the line, author, journalist, PR practitioner and librarian Ed Sadowski found a new passion (and obsession): beating the stock market.
In 2008, when investors were devastated and traumatized with huge losses to their accounts, Ed turned $100,000 into a quarter of a million dollars. And he did this with a mutual fund IRA account using a Rydex inverse 2x leveraged index fund. Subsequently he's had impressive success with various index funds, stock options and forex.
The outgrowth of this success has been a rules-based, mechanical trading system based on technicals, which he calls the Sadowski Trend Analysis Timing System (STATS).
He is the principal of Ultrawest Research -- Market Trend Intelligence at bit.ly/ultrawestresearch
His mission is to help funds and money managers optimize their portfolios, handily beating the market.
