D.R. Barton, Jr. is one of the most widely read financial coaches and is a world-renowned authority on technical trading with 28 years' experience.
After a highly successful career as a chemical engineer with DuPont, D.R. retired early to pursue his passion – showing investors how to build financial freedom.
Today he's a financial author, lecturer, and coach. He has helped hundreds of thousands master the powerful trading techniques that professionals use, like swing trading, options, and cutting-edge risk management. D.R. is also the co-founder and COO of the Directional Research and Trading Hedge Fund Group, and holds the national spotlight as a leading expert on system designs for risk reduction.
D.R. co-authored the New York Times and Wall Street Journal best-selling book "Safe Strategies for Financial Freedom," a comprehensive guide for aggressively shedding risk without derailing profits. He is a regular analyst on Fox Business, CNBC, Bloomberg Radio, and has been featured on China Central Television – America, BNN, MarketWatch, Financial Advisor magazine, SmartMoney, and the Van Tharp Institute.
He's spent decades honing his Stealth Profits Trader service that shows regular investors how to profit just like pro technical traders. He discovered an incredible stock market pattern that identifies potential fast-paced moves in ordinary stocks. It usually appears once a week, and often before a stock's share price doubles, triples, or even quadruples, seemingly out of nowhere. The best part is, it works in any market or stock movement – bull, bear, or sideways.
D.R. holds a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Virginia Tech, an MBA from the University of Delaware and earned his Professional Engineer's license in 1989.
