Chris Johnson- Money Morning - Only the News You Can Profit From.
Chris Johnson is a highly regarded equity and options analyst who has spent much of his 23-year market career designing and interpreting complex models to help investment firms transform millions of data points into impressive gains for clients.
At heart Chris is a quant - like the "rocket scientists" of investing - with a specialty in applying advanced mathematics like stochastic calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, and statistics to Wall Street's data-rich environment.
He began building his proprietary models in 1998, analyzing about 2,000 records per day. Today, that database, which Chris designed and coded from scratch, analyzes a staggering 700,000 records per day. It's the secret behind his track record.
Chris holds degrees in finance, statistics, and accounting. He worked as a licensed broker for 11 years before taking on the role of Director of Quantitative Analysis at a big-name equity and options research firm for eight years. He recently served as Director of Research of a Cleveland-based investment firm responsible for hundreds of millions in AUM. He is also the Founder/CIO of ETF Advisory Research Partners since 2007, noted for its groundbreaking work in Behavioral Valuation systems. Their research is widely read by leaders in the RIA business.
Chris is ranked in the top 99.3% of financial bloggers and top 98.6% of overall experts by TipRanks, the track record registry of financial analysts dating back to January 2009.
He is a frequent commentator on financial markets for CNBC, Fox, Bloomberg TV, and CBS Radio and has been featured in Barron's, USA Today, Newsweek, and The Wall Street Journal, and numerous books.
Today, Chris is the editor of Night Trader, Seismic Profits Alert, and contributes to Money Morning as the Quant Analysis Specialist.

Sigh… If I could wave a magic wand and make downside volatility disappear, I would. But I can't, so I won't.
What I can do is show you how to tweak your approach to trading in a market that has, frankly, come unhinged relative to the past 10 years or so.
Now, it's true the market has put around 10% in gains under its belt since the Christmas Eve rout, but I'd be remiss if I recommended we jump into the rally headfirst, with no regard for the risk. It may turn out to be the start of a big run higher… but I just can't trust it.
Downside risk is never far from a trader's mind these days, and I'm no exception.While the three tips I'm going to share with you won't make volatility go away, what they will do is help you shore up your positions, making sure you pick more winners, cut your losers with confidence, and keep more of your money right where it belongs: squarely in your account.
