About David Weis
David Weis was a trader and market analyst with 40 years’ experience in the futures markets. He started as a broker and analyst for Conti Commodities. Shortly thereafter he enrolled in the Wyckoff Course offered by the Stock Market Institute and became one of its leading practitioners.
Weis later served as the Director of Technical Research for Conti Commodities and wrote its weekly technical market letter. Later he edited the Elliott Wave Commodity Letter which was published by Robert Prechter. After four years, he began his own Technical Forces letter. He currently writes a nightly Stock Market Update based on the interpretation of price/volume behaviour.
Weis’s latest book, Trades About To Happen, A Modern Adaptation of the Wyckoff Method (Wiley & Sons), was published in April 2013. This widely acclaimed work is recognized as a major contribution to the field of technical analysis. In it, Richard Wyckoff’s tape reading techniques of a century ago have been modified to fit today’s volatile markets. Weis is co-author of Charting the Stock Market, The Wyckoff Method and the author of a workbook entitled Trading with the Elliott Wave Principle, A Practical Guide.
