Over past 40 years: College and University courses. Also studied Meditation, yoga, studied health and self-improvement and seeking enlightenment and business and life success and wealth through thousands of books and dozens of gurus.
I was licensed in Mutual funds and Life Insurance in 1985 and have 20 years work experience in accounting and 10 years experience in auto and vehicle insurance and 10 years of telephone sales and service.
I started intensive trading back around 2,000 for a few years than switched to Mutual Funds until February 2013 then sold all my funds and for three years have been doing intensive analysis of what moves Gold and Silver and generate profits for me, which involved 1,000+ hours studying over 1,000+ articles about the market and precious metals and became aware of what really moves precious metals and what doesn't.. The bottom line is there is way too much false analysis and articles and so called Gurus claiming to know what will happen to the price of precious metals and what moves them. Beware of almost all analysts and articles about precious metals are they selling something or are a perma bear or bull. I'm here to profit in precious metals. Most news, manipulations or conspiracy theories don't move Gold consistently in the same direction, so best to minimize focus on them. Elliott Wave I have found it to be the only trustable and profitable method to trade precious metals. There are also a hand full of the best Technical Indicators that are beneficial to use along with Elliott Wave including Ichimoku Cloud, TOS TTM Indicators, MACD, Parabolic SAR, Momentum, SMI ... Summary: I wouldn't trade Gold of Silver without Elliott Wave. -----------------------------
Why Quantum Profit? In physics, a quantum (plural: quanta) is the minimum amount of any physical entity involved in an interaction. "Quantum leap" - noun - : a sudden large change, development, or improvement. Quantum Profit, means mega profits in less time with less effort, while following Elliott Wave advanced analysis, the Law of Attraction, being in the Flow, receiving and giving Divine Guidance and Blessings, and the Law of Allowing, along with Receiving and Appreciation.
Also because I am deeply involved in several QUANTUM activities. Quantum Entrainment (QE) - Where you makes an intention and with a simple and fast triangulation process one can be in a deep state of 'pure awareness', theta brainwaves, where you are in contact with the Zero Point Field of infinite potential. The source of all that is. Miracles often do happen often with that process. It was developed by Dr. Frank Kinslow I have been utilizing this process for 5 years. Dr. Kinslow's book are bestsellers in multiple languages and sold out seminars in US and Europe. I completed his Florida seminar and read and practiced all of his books.
Do You QuantumThink By Dianne Collins is an amazing book that empowers one to "Live in the Zone" I have studied the program many times. The book gently releases resistance and evolves your thinking and awareness from the industrial age 300 years ago into the 21st Century Quantum Age of Divine Awareness and Connection.
I have also practiced and taught another leading edge process for 7 years. Sahaja Yoga - It is the most advanced and beneficial meditation and enlightenment process in history. Every class is free and includes a Kundalini Awakening 30 minute process given for free to all students. You discover your imbalances and learn how to balance and heal all aspects of your life as you practice 'Thoughtless Awareness' meditation, which easily stops all thoughts and drops your brainwaves from regular beta waves to the 'whole brain' deep awareness of Theta brainwaves where you connect with and fill your self with: Divine energy, Kundalini, Energy, Chi, Prana, Life Force, Cool Breeze of the Holy Spirit, and receive balancing and healing in all aspects of your life, including health, inner peace and happiness and resolve financial difficulties. Here is a Sahaja Yoga website that offers free Kundalini Awakening (Enlightenment), Sahaja Yoga is always free in over 100 countries in many languages. See the web site at freemeditation.com It balances all areas of your life including finances.
Elliott Wave Analysis is considered a leading edge financial analysis for investment forecasting. It is more accurate, with greater profits being made in a shorter period of time.

Katy Delay is a freelance commentator, an amateur cartoonist in economics, and the self-published author of a short biography of her father, economist Edward C. Harwood. He was the founder of the third oldest think tank in the U.S., the American Institute for Economic Research, of which she is currently a voting member. Having grown up literally inside the Institute offices, Katy absorbed a great deal about the dismal science; yet she also sympathizes with a public lulled to sleep by the phrase "economic research," combining as it does two of the most boring words in the English language. After getting her degree from Mount Holyoke College, she spent the next 30 years taking her American heritage for granted on five continents. Ultimately, through personal experience, she came to appreciate the significance of her father's lifework and to realize that the degree of freedom and opportunity we are supposed to have in this country is unique. It is also just as fragile as her father had warned. She began to study, and then to write. Since 2004, various websites and newspapers such as Mises.Org, PrudentBear.com, SeekingAlpha.com, and the Los Angeles Business Journal have published her articles. In 2005, she started a blog with the byline: "Proving that economics and a sense of humor are not mutually exclusive." Her first book, the Harwood biography, was published in 2013.
I am a 43 year veteran of Wall Street. My first 26 years were spent on the buy-side as an institutional money manager. I have spent the last 13 years as a sell-side strategist. I am a life long contrarian who finds it easy to take positions quite apart from the crowd. I am most comfortable with my forecasts when my macro and technical analysis are in sync and when my views are at odds with the consensus. I've always been fascinated by the behavioral aspects of investing. Years of observing investor behavior has led me to the conclusion that investor psychology may be the most powerful emotional force in the universe, more powerful than love or hate. It causes otherwise rational beings to make some very irrational decisions. I think every investor should read Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds by Charles MacKay.
I have more than 10 years experience investing in commodities and hard assets such as gold and silver miners, exploration companies, oil and gas producers, MLPs, and various other sectors.

Stephen Simpson, CFA, is a freelance financial writer and investor.
I have worked for both sell-side and buy-side firms (equities and fixed income), with the largest percentage of my working time spent in med-tech. At this point I am now effectively in a "working retirement".
I write because I find that the process helps me take better notes, be more disciplined about modeling, and come up with a more coherent investment view for my portfolio management needs. If I'm writing about a stock, it's generally because I'm interested in it as an investment prospect or I think there's an interesting story to tell.
I don't share my models, so please don't ask.

If you’re an investor, and not on the frontline of the global resource chase, then you’re nowhere.
The world has finally arrived at a major tipping point, where the challenge of dwindling resources is being met by innovative new drilling, extraction, refining and alternative technologies.
The offshoot is almost inconceivable profits.
The catalyst, of course, is the global resource chase, which represents the most powerful movement of money ever known to mankind. And Oil & Energy Daily can put you on the frontline of it, which is no insignificant feat.
You see, the global population is growing (not shrinking). It’s also getting richer (not poorer). On such merits, more and more people are chasing after fewer and fewer resources – with no end in sight.
At Oil & Energy Daily, we embrace the reality of a diminishing supply. Because supply shocks lend themselves to unparalleled profit opportunities. The likes of which the world has never witnessed before.
But you have to know where to look.
These days, the most prolific profits might be buried beneath the icy waters of Alaska’s North Slope. Or they might be tucked away in a Chinese dictator’s desk.
The only surefire way to unlock such an opportunity is to get “boots on the ground” in some of the world’s most volatile (and dangerous) regions, which perfectly describes Oil & Energy Daily’s research methodology.
We’ll be reporting from every conceivable corner of the energy market, including the Middle East.
In doing so, our experts will bridge the tremendous (mis)information gap that exists between you and what’s actually happening on the frontline of the global resource chase.
As a small cap tech investor, I focus my research on a few select names that in quickly going sectors that have the potential to provide abnormally large returns in a relatively short period of time.

In addition to advising several different hedge funds and investment managers, including Friedberg Investment Management, where he participated as a member of its investment management committee, Alan was also a senior analyst for the independent research firm Management CV.

Alan launched www.420Investor.com in late 2013 as the premier source of information for "Green Rush" investors seeking to capitalize on the proliferation of legalized medical and recreational cannabis. In March 2014, Alan, who is a member of the National Cannabis Industry Association, began to focus solely on the cannabis sector. He launched www.NewCannabisVentures.com in late 2015.

I’m a swing trader of momentum stocks with a holding period of anywhere from a few hours to a few months. I run a number of screens to locate the strongest/weakest stocks out there, using technical analysis to determine my entries and exits. Trying to calculate the intrinsic value of stocks in my opinion is out of date and there is wisdom in crowds.I've developed a market timing system that determines when it's best to be long, short or on the sidelines, using a number of proprietary indicators based on many time frames. I believe that to have longevity in this field one must find ways to calm the mind and trade from a detached point of view. Emotionless trading will allow you to respond to what's going on right now in the markets, rather than reacting to daily fluctuations.View my personal blog http://zentrader.ca/

Note: Due to the sheer number of requests for bespoke quant strategies, research projects, and quant consulting services, we have instituted the following pricing for the non-exclusive licensing of our algorithms to institutions:
I. Exclusive commercial licenses for unique bespoke algorithms run six figures and up.
II. Non-exclusive AUM licensing fees for our strategy indices run 10 basis points and up for commercial licenses.
Please realize that we often get more than 3,000 e-mails per week. This means that we read everything that comes in, but we cannot respond to any email or message that does not include the sender's full name, phone number, request, and budget. Thank you for your understanding.
This Dubai-like pricing is necessary, because we can't freely give answers to tough problems which we have dedicated massive R&D capital to solving. World-class statistical talent is hugely expensive, valuable, and rare. Our clients recognize that outsourcing quant work to our firm and paying our fees represent a huge cost savings over hiring full time employees, and usually results in a far more profitable, turn-key solution.

Tim Travis is a veteran deep value investor and money manager. Travis has extensive experience in traditional investments such as stocks and bonds, in addition to having a unique methodology of combining options and distressed investing with value investing to generate income, reduce risk, and to add an element of timing. Currently Tim Travis is the founder, Chief Executive Officer, and Chief Investment Officer of T&T Capital Management. T&T Capital Management is an Irvine, California based Registered Investment Advisor that manages accounts for both individual and institutional investors.
Travis was born in Laguna Beach, California and became captivated with the value investment philosophy in his early teens through reading books written by Benjamin Graham, and the shareholder letters from Berkshire Hathaway, and the Buffett Partnership L.P. Tim Travis became intrigued by the notion that stocks aren’t just pieces of paper but instead are fractional shares of a business that can be analyzed by comprehensive analysis of the balance sheet, income statement, and statement of cash flows. He majored in Business and Economics at the University of California Santa Barbara, graduating in 2004, and he also had the privilege of studying international economics at the University of Richmond in Florence, Italy. Tim Travis got his feet wet in finance working for both Scottrade and AG Edwards & Sons during his college career. Upon graduation Travis worked at the Vanguard Group in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was there that he learned that most mutual funds underperform their respective indexes, and he became disappointed at the overwhelming diversification in most mutual funds, that really makes most of them function as “closet” index funds.
After leaving the Vanguard Group, Travis worked for a small futures and commodities firm in Mission Viejo, California. It was there that Tim developed an adept knowledge of options, particularly the selling of options to take advantage of the higher probabilities involved. It was also during this time in his life that Travis began reading everything he could possibly find on value investing. Some of his role models in the field are Warren Buffett, Martin Whitman, Bruce Berkowitz, Seth Klarman, Peter Lynch, Glenn Greenberg, etc. After working with clients from around the world Travis broke away and started T&T Investment Management L.L.C.
At T&T, Travis refined his unique methodology combining value investing, with the selling of options to generate income and reduce risk. T&T experienced explosive growth by partnering with a local commodities firm. After several years Tim Travis realized that without controlling the majority of the company any longer, he didn’t have full control over the company’s strategic direction. Divergent business principles caused Tim Travis to break away and form T&T Capital Management. At TTCM which Tim Travis is the sole owner, he is allowed to offer only the best products and services, at a reasonable price, without conflicts of interest.
T&T Capital Management’s goal is build wealth for both individual and institutional investors, and to accomplish these goals Travis as Chief Investment Officer employs his deep value investing techniques. Each account is managed on a day to day, personal basis, and there are no cookie cutter portfolios defined only by one’s age and risk tolerance. Every security is researched and hand selected by Travis and his research team. T&T Capital Management takes pride in first class customer service and research which is regularly communicated to clients for education purposes.
