Stephen W. Bigalow
Mr. Bigalow possesses twenty-five years of investment experience, including eight years as a stockbroker with major Wall Street firms: Kidder Peabody & Company, Cowen & Company and Oppenheimer & Company. This was followed by fifteen years of commodity trading, overlapped with twelve years of real estate investing. He holds a business and economics degree from Cornell University, and has lectured at Cornell and at many private educational investment functions over the past twenty years.
His book, Profitable Candlestick Trading, published by John Wiley & Sons, hit the market in January 2002. The book is directed towards the new investor all the way up to the most sophisticated professionals. In addition to developing many educational training products, he has written articles for Stocks and Commodities, and Futures Magazines.
His experience with Candlesticks started over fifteen years ago. This was approximately the time that the Candlesticks were first introduced into the United States. This extensive experience has been channeled into a concise and effective training procedure. Fifteen years of learning from mistakes and avoiding the potential pitfalls are consolidated into an easy to follow, comprehensive training program.
Throughout his investment career, Mr. Bigalow has directed his investment acumen towards developing improved methods for extracting profits from the investment markets. His research, encompassing all fundamental and technical methods, resulted in verifying that Candlestick analysis was superior to any other method. In consulting with money management and energy trading firms, he has successfully combined conventional research methods with Candlestick analysis to greatly enhance investment returns. His implementation of statistical analysis with the Japanese Candlestick methodology has produced some unique successful trading programs.
Mr. Bigalow has also played a role in creating effective methods for learning "how" to use Candlestick signals profitably. There are excellent books on the market describing Candlestick formation. The Candlestick Trading Forum was established to use that information to trade the signals profitably.
