Michael Krauss

Michael Krauss, who recently retired from JP Morgan Securities, formerly served as the Managing Director, Head of Global Fixed Income Technical Analysis and U.S. Equity Technical Analysis at the firm, which he joined in 1994. Mike specializes in technical analysis of the U.S. Treasury Market, S+P 500, U.S. Equity technical gauges, Eurodollars, Swaps, European Bonds, and Sentiment Indicators, with his group branching out to Yield/Swap Curves, Bond Volatility, TIPs, JGBs, Nikkei Index, Intermarket studies, and eventually US Equity stock groups. His former team’s Global Fixed Income Technical Strategist and US Equity Technical Strategist market letters are now received by over 2,700 institutional clients worldwide.

During his tenure at JP Morgan, the group Mike worked with was honored six consecutive years (2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005 and 2004), with a First team ranking in the Technical Analysis category of Institutional Investor Magazine’s “All-America Fixed Income Research Team” poll, and finished in second place in 2003, 2002, and 2001. Mike is the only Wall Street bond technician in this category to have had a “top three” ranking every year surveyed in the past 25 years.

Prior to joining then-Chemical Bank in 1994, Mike spent eleven years as the Chief Fixed Income Technician at Lehman Brothers. There, in early 1984, he started what proved to be the first technical analysis daily fax at a U.S. Government Securities Dealer. Mike has been publishing a regular institutional bond market commentary for over 25 years, with a focus on applying technical analysis as part of a disciplined approach to ordering probabilities and risk reward.

Mike has been a member of the CMT Association since 1989. He attended Lehigh University, where he earned a B.S. in Finance, and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. He is a former President of the Lehigh Martindale Society, and he first plotted charts at the age of seven, as part of a stock market contest during a three-month New York City teacher’s strike.
