A veteran of the U.S. Air Force, Michael Carr started his career at the Pentagon, where he was instrumental in installing an early version of the modern-day internet. He was later moved to a bunker in Iceland, where he deployed state-of-the-art radar systems to track Soviet aircraft near the end of the Cold War. He went on to fulfill many other high-profile missions in our nation’s military, including coding nuclear missile launches. Mike described this experience as “a field where there is no room for error.” It is this philosophy that drives Mike’s dedication to precise investment strategies.

Mike contributes to the Journal of Technical Analysis, MoneyShow, SFO Magazine, and Futures Magazine. He is the author of two books: Smarter Investing in Any Economy: The Definitive Guide to Relative Strength Investing (2008) and Conquering the Divide: How to Use Economic Indicators to Catch Stock Market Trends (2010). He also teaches the Fundamentals of Technical Analysis and Quantitative Technical Analysis courses at the New York Institute of Finance — a.k.a., “where Wall Street goes to school.”
