Legendary Trader and CEO Alpha Financial Technologies LLC.
Victor Sperandeo is a legendary trader and excellent financial commentator based in the USA. Sperandeo has over 45 successful years on Wall Street in trading independently with his own money and on behalf of big names and other notable investors such as Leon Cooperman and George Soros. He has managed futures trading for EAM Group of Companies and global investment banks such as HSBC, RBS and Nomura.
He is widely known as “Trader Vic” in Wall Street, a title earned because of his intellectual ability and skills to trade profitably.
?Mr. Sperandeo is widely regarded as an expert in commodities, particularly in the Energy and Metals sectors. His market crash prediction during a September 1987 Barron’s interview earned him great recognition and highlighted his deep understanding of financial markets. In recent years, Mr. Sperandeo is best known for developing indexes and trading strategies that are designed to benefit from futures price trends. These include both actively managed strategies as well as rules-based algorithmic quantitative models. He has received three patents in the U.S., two in the Bahamas, and one in Australia on financial products using long/short algorithmic indicators or indices in conjunction with leverage, which add alpha while simultaneously reducing risk.
He created the Diversified Trends Indicator™, which is an evolution of these strategies. It is a rules-based, investable trading methodology incorporating a diversified group of highly liquid, exchange-traded commodity and financial futures contracts, reflecting market expectations of near-term and future price movements.
He has been featured twice in Barron’s, “Man of all Markets”, on May 2, 1983, and “Trader Vic the Ultimate Wall Street Pro”, on September 21, 1987 — and been quoted in The Wall Street Journal and Stocks & Commodities. Additionally, he has appeared frequently on CNBC, CNN, Fox and other networks. He has also been included on Ziad Adelnour's list of top 100 Wall Streeters.
The Contrarian in the book Unknown Market Wizards, Jack D. Schwager
With over 30 years of trading experience, I have gone through most markets a trader should see in their career. From the crazy rallies during the 90s, the tech bubble pop in early 2000s, the 2008 market crash and the latest bull run starting in 2009. Through the last 20 years of my career, I have used a contrarian approach which has been very successful to me and my clients, as verified by Jack D. Schwager in his latest Market Wizards book. I have managed large sums of money from a few million to several hundred million and learned a great deal about the Futures markets along with equities.
I own and manage a successful Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA) business. I am a one-man operation, which allows me to enjoy the process and be the ultimate decision maker. I also publish a weekly report called the Crowded Market Report ©. I started this report early this year because I think there is a niche demand for analysis that is not your typical “trade the trend” and “moving average cross over method”, but rather, a contrarian approach based on what market participants are doing and price action is confirming. I also know it will help me be a better trader, but I also KNOW that subscribers will gain value from the report and other insight provided.
