About Us

Do you need to spend your retirement and save at the same time? Are you on a fixed income with an IRA or retirement account that you need to generate income but also live on. Having a problem understanding the current markets and how to trade them? Have a financial advisor or broker but not exactly sure what they are recommending?

Are you a person that wants to learn and understand how to invest in the market, maintain and grow your principle or just be able to direct your financial advisor or broker to full fill your needs, this is the place to be.

  • Do you work all day and don’t feel that you have the time to manage your investments?
  • Only have a few dedicated minutes a day to devote to managing your investments?
  • Are you following the markets 2-4 hours a day managing your investments and not getting the returns you think you should?
  • Do you spend full time with your investments and still seem to come up short a lot?

If any of the above describes your position then The Professor’s Methodology and THEMARKET101 is designed for you.

The Professor’s Methodology through THEMARKET101 provides the tools and information necessary for you to make your investment decisions. You do not have to use the buy and hold philosophy that so many analysts are stating. Many of you may be doing your own trading or in concert with others and these tools can greatly aid in those endeavors. Generally, with all the computerized trading and mega houses buying and selling the individual has a harder and harder time in following the market and making money. The Professor’s Methodology helps you understand the markets and provides you with decision tools to help you manage your finances independently or with your broker or financial advisor. It will help to protect yourself financially.

THEMARKET101 is the medium for all of the The Professor’s Methodology information. It was launched in 2011 to replace the then email system used for dissemination of The Professor's data and analysis. Over time several features and information have been added and it was necessary to develop the website to assure everyone received up-to-date and timely information.

When you join you get access to the Dean's List and Member's Watch List. Using The Professor's proprietary algorithms the Dean's List ETF's and the Member's Watch List stock picks are filtered and ranked. They can be used for potential picks to trade and can be a guide to market directions.

The Honor Roll will list any potential long or short trades from the Member's Watch List that are trending. Used together they are a great tool to help your decision making.

To wrap this all together The Professor provides a Weekend Strategy Review summarizing The Professor's thoughts on the past week and the direction of the markets for the coming period.

And if that is not enough The Professor puts out a Professor’s Comment throughout the week when he feels there are major shifts or concerns in the market that the members should be made aware of.

An RSS link is provided to alert you when a new update has been posted for the 7 major lists and sections so you can login and review them.

Need a quick overview of the markets, moneyflow, trends and guidance for changes then look at the Market Signals box (Cockpit Data). It provides a quick snap shot of the markets strengths and weaknesses. Need to get a feel for the trading direction of the markets, The Market Data box displays the 3 major markets index ETF's.

Professor’s Class

The Professor’s Methodology course is unlike any other financial course or expensive trading seminar. You don’t need expensive trading software to manage your investments. You only need to understand a few simple rules and indicators that are available for free on the internet.

The Professor periodically holds his class (The Professor’s One Minute Guide to Stock Management) in the evening Continuing Education Sessions at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville, Fl. It is a 6 hour course divided into 3, 2 hour sessions.

If you are unable to attend The Professor’s Methodology class you can purchase his book in softcover here or for your kindle from Amazon.

Using The Professor’s Methodology as described in The Professor’s One Minute Guide to Stock Management only requires one minute a day to protect yourself once your positions are established. Trading and investments should not be a worrisome adventure. Life is too short and every moment is precious. There are too many things that we need to be concerned about as we live our lives. Worrying about our investments should not be one of them.

Specifically, what are some of the things you take away from the class or The Professor’s book?

  • When is a good time to be "in the stock market" and a good time to be "out of the stock market"
  • Learn how to recognize when to buy and when to sell stock’s and ETF’s
  • How to recognize what to buy
  • How to Position Trade and the advantages
  • How to use technical indicators
  • Hockey Stick to learn entry and exit points
  • Wave analysis to follow tops and bottoms
  • You will also learn what the one most important concept for trading and making money is.
You will learn about the DMI, COACH, A/D OSC, The Tide and others. Don’t worry, you will learn what these indicators are, how to read them and what they tell you. They are taught in the class or described in The Professor’s One Minute Guide to Stock Management book.

Words from The Professor

When asked why he is doing all this he responded:

From the book (The Professor’s One Minute Guide to Stock Management).

Authors’ Forward

It all started in April 2009. I came home from playing golf and told my wife Marcia about a conversation I had with a friend. He told me that he lost a considerable amount of money in the stock market. He said that was dissatisfied with his financial advisor who was with supposed to be watching his investment portfolio. But apparently, all his advisor was doing was watching his investments go down. I told my friend that the technical indicators I was following were negative, and had been negative for some time, and that no one should be in the stock market under these conditions. I wondered why his financial advisor wasn’t telling him this.

When I discussed this with my wife, she opined that maybe people don’t understand technical analysis or indicators. Maybe it was time for someone to explain them in simple, easy to understand terms so everyone can use them to make investment decisions for themselves, without the need for ’advisors’. Or if they had a financial advisor, they can use these indicators to discuss whether they should be in or out of a particular investment. I believe that investors and advisors should know how to manage a portfolio, not just watch it go up or down.

After discussing the above with Marcia, I decided to have a seminar at my golf club. So early in March 2009, with the Dow trading near 6,700, I stood before my friends and neighbors and announced that the Dow was going back above 10,000. I’m sure they wondered who this guy was that was so confident to make a prediction like this. I gave my reasons, explaining how technical analysis could be used to project a higher market. One of the participants at the seminar was so excited, that she told a neighbor about the seminar, who happened to work at the University of North Florida’s Department of Continuing Education. A few days later I was the discussing the outline of a course with them. The course was developed from a Methodology that I have used in my trading for years. When I worked for the Navy, I used to talk about this Methodology with my co-workers. Then after I left government service and consulted back to the Navy, I used to teach it to many of the people I worked with at Patuxent River, Maryland.

And now, after three years teaching the course at UNF, The Professor’s One Minute Guide to Stock Management has proven to be a very popular course. It draws overflow crowds of students of all ages and investment experience levels, and has been reported in newspapers and on TV. It is not like any other financial course or an expensive trading seminar. You don’t need expensive trading software to manage your investments. You only need to understand a few simple rules and indicators that are available for free on the internet. My One Minute Guide only requires you to look at your stocks one minute a day for you to protect yourself. Trading and investments should not be a worrisome adventure. Life is too short and every moment is precious. There are too many things that we need to be concerned about as we live our lives. Worrying about our investments should not be one of them.

I hope this book and my Methodology helps you understand the markets, and provides you with the decision tools to become financially independent and protect yourself. Take control - Do it yourself. It’s your money, your retirement, your kid’s education, your financial future. Protect it.
