Richard considers himself a Financial Engineer using simple tools of technical analysis and proprietary analytics to provide price levels at which to buy a ticker on weakness and to sell a ticker on strength.
Richard is also an expert on Fed policy, the banking system and housing market. He understands how to read the FDIC Quarterly Banking Profile. He correctly predicted the housing price bubble in 2006 and the waves of bank failures that lead to the crash of 2008.
Market timing is a skill that enabled Richard to make significant market calls including the pop of the tech bubble in March 2000, the stock market bottom in the second half of 2002, the crash of 2008 and the stock market bottom on March 9, 2009.
Over the years Richard frequently appeared on financial TV. On many holidays he appeared for an hour covering stocks on a call-in / email-the-expert ‘Talking Stocks’ show on CNNfn. In 2002 he had his own show on Yahoo Finance TV called, ‘Traders’ Club with Richard Suttmeier’. He was president of the Society for the Investigation of Recurring Events in NYC from 2000 into 2009.
