John Devcic is a self-educated investor and freelance writer who began experimenting in the market in high school. Initially, his results were not good, and he lost his first investment of $350 in a mutual fund. From that beginning, John devoted himself to reading everything he could find about investing and financial analysis.

In his articles, he takes the lessons learned from his reading and investing experience and incorporates them into his writing. His articles appear on Forbes,, and Investopedia.

John's topics include trading strategies, financial analysis and charting methods, and investing in exchange-traded funds (ETFs), commodities, and fixed-income products. He also provides educative articles that explain how technical indicators function, including moving averages and Bollinger Bands.

John believes that by learning about market analysis and studying the market's historical patterns, an investor can gain insight into the hows and whys of market movement.
