Mark Minervini is a technical analyst, acclaimed author, instructor, and independent trader. He has over 30 years of experience in finance, and was featured in Jack Schwager’s Stock Market Wizards; Conversations with America’s Top Stock Traders. Schwager wrote: “Minervini’s performance has been nothing short of astounding. Most traders and money managers would be delighted to have Minervini’s worst year – a 128 percent gain – as their best.”
Mark traded his first stock in 1983 when he invested in a few hundred shares of Allis Chalmer, a seller of tractors and forklifts. Soon after, he became familiar with the work of Richard Love, author of the book Superpeformance Stocks. Love’s book had a profound influence on Mark’s professional and philosophical views on investing and the formulation of his own investment strategy. It was Mark’s initial intention to simply support himself from his trading profits, but his well-timed investment decisions increased his wealth dramatically each year, as well as the popularity of his opinion. He now runs an educational website and forum where he shares his Specific Entry Point Analysis® – SEPA methodology with other traders and analysts.
