Since 2008, my passion has been developing charting indicators and database-enabled decision support systems for trading the S&P 500 options and futures markets.    The purpose of nextSignals.com is to share the knowledge I have accrued over that period.    My work has always emphasized the synthesis and systematic application of strategies supported by research in the academic financial literature.   In short, I have developed real-time graphical interfaces to improve an understanding of market dynamics and to support novel evidence-based investment strategies.   This blog is a repository for those concepts.
