Over 9 years of experience in active investing, specializing in U.S. small/mid-cap equities and precious metals stocks. 

My main focus is on growth stocks outperforming the market and their peers. In addition to looking at the fundamentals, I use different momentum systems to capture maximum upside price action as I believe timing is everything. I scan upwards of 2000 stocks nightly on the U.S. and Canadian markets to identify the best fundamental opportunities with the most timely technical setups. 

I am a huge proponent of Trend Following and the "Turtles" who enjoyed compound annual growth rates of over 80 percent per year.


"If there is a sudden range expansion in a market that has been trading narrowly, human nature is to try and fade that price move. When you get a range expansion, the market is sending you a very loud, clear signal that the market is getting ready to move in the direction of that expansion.” - Paul Tudor Jones

"While a fundamental analyst may be able to properly evaluate the economics underlying a stock, I do not believe they can predict how the masses will process this same information. Ultimately, it is the dollar-weighted collective opinion of all market participants that determines whether a stock goes up or down. This consensus is revealed by analyzing price."

"We can’t always take advantage of a particular period. But in an uncertain world, perhaps the investment philosophy that makes the most sense, if you study the implications carefully, is trend following. Trend following consists of buying high and selling low. For 19 years we have consistently bought high and sold low. If trends were not the underlying nature of markets, our type of trading would have very quickly put us out of business. It wouldn’t take 19 years or even 19 months of buying high and selling low ALL of the time to bankrupt you. But trends are an integral, underlying reality in life. How can someone buy high and sell low and be successful for two decades unless the underlying nature of markets is to trend? On the other hand, I’ve seen year-after-year, brilliant men buying low and selling high for a while successfully and then going broke because they thought they understood why a certain investment instrument had to perform in accordance with their personal logic." - John W.
