The Technical Analyst

From “The Heretics of Finance” by Andrew Lo and Jasmina Hasanhodzic:

“Technical analysis attracts people with a certain mindset: someone who is unconventional, willing to take chances, creative, a bit of a maverick, a little crazy. It attracts a certain type of person, a risk taker.”
– John J Murphy, Chief Technical Analyst, StockCharts.com

I’m venturing into the conformist, riskless, herd-following corporate world in 6 months. Note to future self: Stay hungry, stay foolish, and stay “crazy”.

  1. Hey, eggy one. Are you still writing in 2010? Your posts are really interesting for a non-financially literate non-economics focused person who occasionally needs to understand a bit about this stuff.
