Dr. Kris has two degrees from MIT because one just wasn't enough. Her life goal was to figure out the universe and having done that (at least to her satisfaction), she decided to tackle something even more difficult—the stock market.
Applying the scientific method along with an insatiably curious mind, she began trading stocks, futures, and options in order to find the holy grail to market success. She's discovered to her immense satisfaction that not only is there one way to succeed but many. Combining her love of cooking with the stock market, she's devised recipes for investment success designed to please the palate of most investors. Dr. Kris currently manages a private equity long/short portfolio and writes of her current research projects that appear on her website, StockMarketCookBook.com.
Her most exciting project is applying market timing models to Modern Portfolio Theory to not only give greater returns but at substantially lower levels of risk. (See PortfolioPreserver.com for further information.)

I have been investing in the markets for the last 10 years. My strategies take advantage of the various moves the market makes through different economic cycles. In periods of Volatility, I will take trades that would last several days or weeks. During trending periods, I will take core positions that could last several months. I trade all asset classes and believe you have to be nimble in today's markets . You have to be able to deploy capital into the correct strategies and asset classes that will provide you with the best returns at that point in time.
