Richard Suttmeier

I am an engineer by education with a Master of Science Degree in Operations Research Systems Analysis.  

After five years as a Systems Analyst, I began my career in the financial markets in 1972. I started as a bond trader in the primary dealer community. In 1984, while managing a major fixed income trading desk, I began to write comprehensive analysis of the U.S. Capital Markets.

At the end of 1989, I formed Global Market Consultants, Ltd as an independent financial strategies firm. While operating this firm, I worked as desk strategist for several Wall Street firms before becoming a freelance writer in 2009.

My methodology is based upon simple tools of technical analysis, and my proprietary analytics that provide value levels at which to buy on weakness and risky levels at which to sell on strength.
