Wayne received a Master’s Degree in Operations Research in 1981 from the Georgia Institute of Technology and spent 12 years working in the defense industry before taking on the challenge of converting a hobby into a career. Wayne doesn’t come from the traditional market evaluation school, takes more of an engineering approach to market analysis and offers weekly, his commentary plus the best of that week’s market studies for a $1000 annual subscription fee, with studies primarily focused on the S&P but ranging across 14 different markets. Wayne’s models rely heavily upon their ability to take an electronic snapshot each day of an indicator’s characteristics, identifying all similar instances in the past, and summarizing the statistical results for the user. Wayne has a fondness for spinning a tale and was the recipient of the 2010 Charles Dow award from the Market Technicians Association for his research paper, ‘Planes, Trains and Automobiles, A Survey of Momentum Thrust Signals’, which is posted on online. Wayne has been published in ‘Technical Analysis of Stocks and Commodities’, ‘Futures Magazine’ and referenced in Barron’s. A google of his name will produce many of his daily studies which have made it into cyberspace circulations. And his last two annual outlooks are posted above under Wayne Whaley Commentary.
