Welcome to AlphaCharts Blog by me, Brian G.

I’m an Engineer and CFA Charterholder from Vancouver, BC. I entered the markets in 1999 and have been hooked ever since. I’ve been active on StockTwits since 2011 and more recently on Twitter under the handle @alphacharts. I created this blog to occasionally discuss trade ideas & research in longer form.

My trading philosophy: Catch the big trends across asset classes and market sectors, while keeping things simple. Identifying leaders, waiting patiently for price to break out of a horizontal base and then riding a trend for months is powerful, simple, and limits risk.
