Curtis Guthrie began investing in real estate in 1982 and it wasn’t until the late 1990’s that a neighbor started giving him investment magazines. The amounts of appreciation that stocks were having during that period was amazing and inspired the learning process to begin.
In early 2002 Curt was introduced to technical analysis by a retired NYSE trader. Up until then he read company financial reports and all the news to be found on a company to help understand and make investment decisions on that company. Well, then came Enron, Worldcom, and all the accounting scandals, so it didn’t take long to realize that time was being wasted reading financial reports because it would be impossible to differentiate between what were accounting tricks and what were not.
As soon as he was introduced to price charts with oscillators, drawing tools, patterns that re-occur and combined with all the other details that are described on the graphs he was hooked. If you ask him he would say that working as a motor cycle technician as a teenager formed the foundation to read market clues while having extreme focus on the minutest details on price charts.
A decade later, Curtis has decided to launch a website offering services to help others learn investing and trading concepts that are based on pure technical analysis of price and time. The methods can be applied to charts in all time frames to markets such as stocks, bonds, futures, forex and currency.
The trading school has been in the works since 2004 but in 2007 he was introduced to the work of Alan Andrews, Tim Morge, Rodger Babson, George Marechal, Professor Anderson, and Dr. Hagopian. Many of these techniques are based based on Isaac Newton’s laws of motion and have since become the primary tools used in his charting.
