In this episode, we review the state of the U.S stock market from the perspective of charts and trends —— technical analysis.
Our guest, Katie Stockton of Fairlead Strategies, is one of the most talented and respected technical analysts working in financial markets.
She will mention the term “Fibonacci retracement,” which is a tool derived from an Italian mathematician’s work in 1202 and first discovered by Indian scholars in 200 BC.
The pattern can be found many places in nature, such as in the spiral of a pine cone, the arrangement of seeds in a sunflower, the branching of a tree, the shape of a seashell, and even in a DNA molecule.
With Katie as portfolio manager, Fairlead has recently launched a “Tactical Sector ETF” under the symbol TACK. Fairlead Strategies employs a systematic approach to technical analysis focused on the identification of important trends and support & resistance levels. Mathematically based tools facilitate tactical market timing and positioning.
Technical analysis is a methodology using charts and trends for forecasting the direction of prices through the study of past market data, primarily price and volume. Additionally, momentum and relative strength.1

Native Angelino description found on iTunes:
“From a vantage point within sight of the Hollywood Sign, seated beneath a palm tree, Tom Levine takes you on a twisted, exploratory tour of popular thought, the upside-down theories of classical economics, politics, and other strange things.
Tom talks all things Los Angeles, bright new ideas, and complex topics of interest to creative thinkers and discerning skeptics.
L.A. locals state with pride, "You can surf in the morning and ski in the afternoon." Well, if you get a really early start, it's true. Sometimes.
Los Angeles is the City of the Angels, and Tom Levine is a Native Angelino.
