Chad is our in-house income and investment research expert. He earned two bachelor’s degrees from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in finance and economics. In addition to these achievements, he is a Chartered Market Technician (CMT). Fewer than 5,000 people around the world have earned this designation.

Those with CMT designation read and build statistical models that make up a valid trading strategy. Chad developed three trading systems that readers of Banyan Hill have used to grow their wealth.

Chad joined Banyan Hill in 2012. He ran our top-performing service in 2016, Pure Income. In Pure Income, Chad finds the best opportunities to generate steady monthly income.

When Chad explained his Pure Income system to our natural resources expert, Matt Badiali, Matt coined these lightning-fast trades “1-Minute Windfalls.” He told Chad: “Frankly, I’ve never seen anything so consistent, so lucrative and so easy….”

Matt believed in this system — and in Chad, whom he called “the most successful trader we have here at Banyan Hill.” In fact, Matt filmed a video that he sent to his readers urging them to sign up for the service. He told them: “I know these 1-Minute Windfalls will transform your life forever.”

And Matt was right. Chad’s readers have realized a profound win rate.

Chad also developed a stock-trading service, Automatic Profits Alert. It’s designed to take advantage of seasonal patterns in the markets. He cross-examined over a decade of historical performance. Then he back tested 20,800 hours of real market data. Chad adapted his strategy from a calendar Wall Street insiders have used to predict every boom and bust in the market for over a century. He used this calendar to create one of his own, the Automatic Profits Calendar. The calendar shows when to buy and sell stocks based on their sectors’ seasonal trends. Chad walks readers through every step on a weekly basis.

Chad’s Quick Hit Profits takes advantage of a stock’s surge after a company’s earnings announcement. Chad’s system has a “profit trigger” that alerts him to the best time to trade following a company’s earnings announcement.

Chad also contributes to our daily newsletter, Winning Investor Daily. He shares his market insights every week. You can read more about Chad’s services below and follow the links to sign up for Chad’s newsletters.
