Rod David developed analytical techniques that are designed to efficiently identify targets and turning points for any liquid stock or market in any time frame. He primarily applies his technique to analyzing S&Ps. The methodologies are also applied to other high-profile futures markets to generate an opinion and to identify specific actionable parameters.
Mr. David publishes his setups intraday on a blog at IfThenSignals.com, where he also hosts a live "charting room" webinar to graphically depict his patterns and targets in real-time.
Previously David was a Contributing Editor for optionMONSTER where he produced the Index Trader blog, providing intraday timing signals and targets in S&Ps and other futures markets. Prior to that, David founded AvidTrader.com in 1995, one of the original technical analysis websites. Through AvidTrader, Rod launched the web's first free-access traders chatroom in 1996 where technical analysis newcomers and experts from around the world mingle throughout each trading day.
In addition to Minyanville, David's analysis has been published or quoted in CBS MarketWatch, CNBC, The New York Times, Trader Daily, Futures Magazine, and Technical Analysis of Stocks & Commodities, among others. Rod graduated Summa Cum Laude from Park University and resides in the Kansas City area.
