Portfolio Manager at Spectem Technologies LLC, a NY-based algorithmic Quant Fund. Our strategy currently examines the US markets building complex univariate and megavariate models for predicting market movements. By having massive computational power, we are able to take predictions and produce both macro economic projections and sector specific trends with incredible accuracy. The goal of my writing and posts on SeekingAlpha and all other publications is to provide insight that less than 1% of the investment community both retail and high-net worth seldom get to see.
I founded Seeking Alpha, and lead it for its first 10 years until I passed the CEO role to Eli Hoffmann. I started Seeking Alpha after working for five years as a technology research analyst for Morgan Stanley in New York. Seeking Alpha is now the dominant crowdsourced equity research platform.
I wrote the ETF Investment Guide (http://seekingalpha.com/article/15136-etf-investing-guide-one-page-summary-of-the-entire-guide), and I blog about startup best practices at http://davidjaxon.wordpress.com .
I have a B.A from Oxford University and an MSc from The London School of Economics, and am married with five children.
