Many firms and analysts see the market in one way, through one lens. We are different.

Consistency of results demands both consistency of process and flexibility to respond to shifting market regimes. Essentially, the challenges is understanding what changes and what does not change.
We draw from the best of many disciplines. While our approach is rooted in technical analysis, we work hard to correct many of the errors of traditional technical analysis which can be highly subjective and untestable. However, a technical process with an enduring edge brings many strengths, one of the most important of which is that it forces us to confront the reality of the market as it is. Assumptions, projections, biases, and emotion take a back seat to the message of price action.
