Paul Kosakowski

Paul Kosakowski began investing in 1998, just in time for the last leg up of the great bull market that ended in early 2000. After watching the markets peak in early 2000, he began to study the relationship between human behavioral patterns and the performance of the financial markets. Paul analyzes the markets from a perspective that includes both Cycles and Elliot Wave analysis combined with traditional technical indicators, such as MACD and Stochastics, with a working hypothesis that when these three disciplines are in harmony with each other, the analyst potentially has powerful information at his disposal. Paul holds a degree in Physics from Southern Connecticut State University and is currently employed as an IT consultant in the Financial Services Industry.
