John RossJohn RossSenior Analyst

John Ross (aka J.R.) has helped tens of thousands of independent investors navigate the market.

He’s crafted a method that lets traders protect and grow their money. He refined it over 12 years of studying global macroeconomics, pattern analysis and investor behavior. His trading style exploits opportunities created by emotions like fear and greed.

Beginning in 2006, J.R. led a select group of traders to tremendous gains during gold’s bull market. He helped his readers escape the crude oil market before it imploded in 2014. And then, in March 2016, he directed his readers to load up on energy stocks when crude oil bottomed at $30.

J.R.’s well on his way to reaching his latest goal — to become a Chartered Market Technician (CMT). He’ll be in the company of the world’s top practitioners of technical analysis.

He earned a degree in finance from Florida State University, where he fell in love with the woman he married. He and his wife have five children.

He joined Banyan Hill in 2018, where his reputation as a great analyst and stock picker preceded him. He contributes to Winning Investor Daily and is working with Matt Badiali to help independent investors make money in natural resources.
