Paul Kosakowski first developed an interest in investing in 1998. As he learned about the markets and investing, he began to see a relationship between the performance of the markets and human behavior patterns. Paul applies his data analysis skills as he views the market using both fundamental and technical indicators.

Paul began writing for Investopedia in 2016. He uses his analysis in his financial writing as he explains complex topics in an easy-to-read style. His work appears in syndication on Yahoo Finance, is referenced in dissertations and other scholarly research, and is referenced in the book, Leveraging Your Financial Intelligence (Wiley 2017).
