Michael Carr is an American investor, a Chartered Market Technician (CMT) and a contributing editor for Sovereign Investor Daily. He is a longtime member of the Market Technicians Association (MTA), where he serves as the editor of its newsletter, “Technically Speaking.” He is also a contributor to various publications related to trading, including the Journal of Technical Analysis, MoneyShow, SFO Magazine and Futures Magazine. Michael is the author of two books, Smarter Investing in Any Economy: The Definitive Guide to Relative Strength Investing (2008) and Conquering the Divide: How to Use Economic Indicators to Catch Stock Market Trends (2010).

A veteran of the U.S. Air Force, Michael started his career at the Pentagon, where he was instrumental in the installation of the facility’s first local area network, an early version of the modern-day Internet. He was later moved to a bunker in Iceland where he was involved with deploying state-of-the-art radar systems to track Soviet aircraft near the end of the Cold War. He went on to fulfill many other high-profile and high-intensity positions in our nation’s military, including designing the codes for nuclear missile launches, where he often stood on stand-by for the President. Michael described this experience as “a field where there is no room for error.” It is this philosophy that drives Michael’s investment strategies.

While in the military, Michael spent his off-time devouring every book on the stock market he could get his hands on, and after he eventually retired from the U.S. Air Force as a lieutenant colonel, he became a full-time investor, devoting his full attention to refining his investment strategies. A self-described “systems trader,” Michael believes in a highly disciplined approach to investing, buying and selling by means of rules-based systems — and rules-based systems only. To that end, Michael specializes in developing risk-off, trend-following strategies that investors can use to grow their wealth steadily and without fear of succumbing to the next market crash. His proprietary methods made him a sought-after investment advisor, earning him positions as the Chief Market Strategist for Dunn Warren Investment Advisors, LLC, a Subadvisor to the CIFG All Weather and Strategic Opportunities mutual funds family, and Keeper of the Portfolios at Newsmax for their entire arsenal of investment and trading systems.

With his history of building and testing investment and trading systems, Michael is excited to develop new systems with Banyan Hill Publishing for our readers to benefit. To learn more about Michael, check out his free articles below.
