Lowry’s Paul Desmond

I will be interviewing Lowry’s terrific Technical Analyst, Paul Desmond later today. Its a Q&A which will get transcribed for publication.

I have a list of questions for him about his work on spotting market bottoms, which won the Charles Dow 2002 Market Technician’s Award. His most recent quantitative analysis is on how tops get formed, and compares the 1929 top with 14 more recent tops.

If anyone has a question for him, please use the comments section here to post them, and I will try to work them into to the discussion.

Thanks for all the suggestions!   I was on the phone with Paul for over an hour. He is very eloquent and thoughtful, has a totally rigorous approach, and has made some truly important and impressive technical discoveries. And, I was smart enough to say very little and let him do most of the talking.

The tape is now being transcribed, and with a little luck should be out to tomorrow — I am totally jazzed about the way it came out.

Many thanks — you guys were tremendously helpful!

Then, I discussed the work of James Montier of Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein (DrKW) yesterday, (Seven Sins of Fund Management). This was the first time I ever mentioned him. By coincidence, I read about a Fear/Greed indicator last night from the very same James…Read More
