Chad is our in-house income and investment research expert. He has earned the distinction of being a Chartered Market Technician (CMT), a professional achievement fewer than 5,000 people around the world have earned. The CMT test requires an understanding of reading financial stock price charts — but it is far more involved than that. It also tests a person’s knowledge of statistical analysis, behavioral finance, risk management and technical investment strategies. In other words, those with CMT designation demonstrate the knowledge to understand and build statistical models that make up a valid trading strategy — which Chad has been using to your benefit here.
He joined Banyan Hill in 2012 and ran our top-performing service in 2016, Pure Income. In Pure Income, he taps into the best opportunities to generate safe, steady monthly income. With his recommendations, subscribers collect double-digit yields nearly every month for an average 15% gain per trade. Overall, it’s led to Pure Income being one of the best-performing services each year and has handed his readers a 93% win rate — something practically unheard of in the investment world.
Chad is also the editor of Automatic Profits Alert, which is designed to take advantage of seasonal patterns that appear over and over in the markets. He cross-examined over a decade’s worth of these anomalies and backtested across 20,800 hours of real market data to design this service, which comes with its own calendar — alerting you exactly when to buy and exit these seasonal trends all year long. The results have been nothing short of phenomenal. Over the last decade, the strategy never resulted in a losing year. Now Chad walks you through every step on a weekly basis so that you too can virtually crash-proof your portfolio.
In addition to the CMT designation, Chad’s credentials include two bachelor’s degrees from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, one in finance and one in economics. If you are not signed up to any of Chad’s services yet, be sure to check out his contributions to our new daily newsletter, the Winning Investor Daily. He is featured weekly, where he shares insights into the research and analysis he is conducting as he continues his study of the stock market.
