Through decades of volatile bull and bear markets, the colorful character known to his many followers as Swinger (a reference to his preference for the swing trading style of investing–and not, as some may presuppose, for his extracurricular proclivities) has posted his unique style of stock market trend analysis from the professional insider’s perspective. Known especially for an uncanny ability to detect major stock market turns in real-time, Swinger’s Big Picture Commentary is a must-read for serious investors.
Swinger’s analysis is concentrated primarily on The S&P 500 Index Futures Options and is interlaced with occasional rants on a wide range of subjects related to the markets including trading psychology and exploiting the predictable behavior of automated trading systems.
