Jerry Favors

Jerry Favors

A well-known and highly-respected figure in the market-timing community, Jerry Favors worked professionally in the financial world since 1976, when he left Ohio State University two months before graduation to accept his first job in the brokerage business. He published his own market newsletter, The Jerry Favors Analysis, since August 1985. During that time he built a reputation for integrity, thorough research, and unhedged forecasts.

To make his equity market predictions, Jerry utilized the techniques of past stock market gurus George Lindsay, Edson Gould, and Donald Bradley; the methods of W.D. Gann, and the Elliott Wave Principle. In addition, his interest and studies in psychology enabled him to gauge the emotional forces at work on the market. Jerry used the most rigorous analysis to arrive at his results, but presented his logic in clear, understandable terms. In addition to the newsletter which is published once monthly, a regularly-updated hotline provides subscribers with short-term advice.

Before founding The Jerry Favors Analysis, Jerry worked as a stockbroker for several companies, including Merrill Lynch and Dean Witter. During the late 1980s and early 1990s he offered his expert commentary as a regular guest on the Financial News Network (FNN), several national business radio programs, and through articles written for numerous technical periodicals. His forecasts have appeared in The Wall Street Journal, Barron’s, USA Today and weekly on CNBC’s Street Signs with Ron Insana.

Known in the U.S. technical analysis community as a market historian, Jerry held seminars in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and London teaching the works of the great financial masters.

From the Editor’s Desk

On the cover of this month’s issue, we pay our respects to Jerry Favors. Mr. Favors was an early icon of technical analysis that came onto the financial scene in the mid-1980s. He was known for his respect for and deep knowledge of the works of the old masters of technical analysis like Edson Gould and George Lindsay. His work was widely known and highly respected throughout the financial world. Young technicians should consider picking up where Mr. Favors left off by exploring the works of the old masters that he loved so much. Inside, we present a new addition to Technically Speaking. Meet A CMT. This monthly column interviews a relatively new, up-and-coming CMT for the purpose of introducing him or her to the Membership. Kudos to Contributing Editor Garry Rissman for a job well done on this inaugural column. Also inside is another new addition to TS, our Letters To The Editor column, and also an update on the MTA’s Educational Seminar in New York City this May. Finally, I’d like to announce that this will be my last issue as the Editor of Technically Speaking. Our Nominating Committee has decided to go in a different direction, with a new slate of incoming officers for the upcoming MTA elections in June. As an outgoing Board member, I believe it is in the best interests of the Association to turn the reins over to the incoming Board as soon as possible so they can get off to a running start with their own agenda and initiatives. I believe an integral part of that should be installing a new Editor, since Technically Speaking is the voice of the MTA and a means for the incoming Board to inform us of its new direction and to support its new policies. As outgoing Vice President, I tried to use my position as Editor to do that very thing, and the new Board should have the opportunity to do so as well. Please take the time to carefully read the columns written by Jordan Kotick and John Kirby, our outgoing President and Executive Director. Jordan’s column gives a detailed overview of the changes that took place within your MTA during the past few years, and John provides us with a detailed look at the MTA’s current financial condition. I am very proud to have been a part of this Board which made a lot of changes that, although unpopular in some circles, turned the MTA from a 25-year old private club to a world-recognized professional society who’s CMT I and II tests are now accredited as a surrogate for the Series 86 exams. Special thanks to my Board colleagues and friends Jordan Kotick, Barry Sine and John Kirby who made it all happen, and best of luck to the incoming Board members and to the MTA.
