"Stress the truth, don't stretch the truth."
-- Christina Nikolov
ChartWatchCentral, Inc. was founded in 2001, by long-time financial writer, mathematician, option trader, commercial pilot and photographer, Christina Nikolov.
Primarily utilizing technical analysis, our objective is to uncover profitable trend reversals prior to their occurrence. While this strategy is often risky, since reversal patterns occasionally fail, it can also be tremendously profitable when the analysis is on target. While technical analysis is our primary research tool, fundamental analysis is also utilized, in an effort to confirm the technical picture.
Types of issues focused on: Indices, equities, options and mutual funds.
Types of charting used: Bar charts and Candlestick Charts
Her leadership and commitment to analytical integrity provides clarity in the midst of confusion - the complexity of statistical analysis is simplified by easily understood and accurate presentations which are the benchmark signature of ChartWatchCentral.
When Ms. Nikolov first began charting
stocks in the early 1990's, she didn't have access to charting software, so
charting a stock
wasn't as simple a process as it is now. Twenty-five years ago, if you wanted to
follow a stock, it typically involved sifting through newspapers and
plotting the open, high, low, close and volume on actual graph paper. Anytime Ms.
was interested in a stock, she sifted through at least
30 days of previous newspapers for the price data. Then she would create the chart
by hand. Of course, moving averages were the most time consuming aspect of the
chart creation process, until she finally purchased ©MetaStock in 1993. Thanks to ©MetaStock, she is no longer limited to following a handful of stocks. Her
chart database currently contains over 7000 securities.
To compliment her
extensive technical analysis background, she also has numerous years of writing
and research experience. In addition, she is also a licensed instrument-rated single
multi-engine commercial pilot and instrument flight instructor,
with over 1,500 hours of flight time. and more than 700 hours of
dual instruction given.
