About the Author
Victor Sperandeo is a legendary trader and excellent financial commentator based in the USA. Sperandeo has over 45 successful years on Wall Street in trading independently with his own money and on behalf of big names and other notable investors such as Leon Cooperman and George Soros. He has managed futures trading for EAM Group of Companies and global investment banks such as HSBC, RBS and Nomura. He is widely known as “Trader Vic” in Wall Street, a title earned because of his intellectual ability and skills to trade profitably.
Victor Sperandeo is the founder, CEO and President of Alpha Financial Technologies LLC. He is also a founding partner, CEO and President of EAM Partners L.P.
Mr. Sperandeo is widely regarded as an expert in commodities, particularly in the Energy and Metals sectors. His market crash prediction during a September 1987 Barron’s interview earned him great recognition and highlighted his deep understanding of financial markets. In recent years, Mr. Sperandeo is best known for developing indexes and trading strategies that are designed to benefit from futures price trends. These include both actively managed strategies as well as rules-based algorithmic quantitative models. He has received three patents in the U.S., two in the Bahamas, and one in Australia on financial products using long/short algorithmic indicators or indices in conjunction with leverage, which add alpha while simultaneously reducing risk.
He created the Diversified Trends Indicator™, which is an evolution of these strategies. It is a rules-based, investable trading methodology incorporating a diversified group of highly liquid, exchange-traded commodity and financial futures contracts, reflecting market expectations of near-term and future price movements.
