About

A Brief History

Over the past 30+ years, Brad Matheny has been actively involved in the trading industry as a trader, software developer, consultant, speaker, author and more. In 1989, after 4+ years of trading metals and futures, Mr. Matheny started developing The Candlestick Forecaster (CSF) software series with his partner, Gary Wagner. By 1991, this adaptive interpretive Japanese Candlestick identification began to win awards and expand across the globe. By 1993, Mr. Matheny and Mr Wagner were engaged in global speaking conferences, guests on TV and approached to author a new book on Japanese Candlestick Trading techniques by John Wiley & Sons (NY). They also traveled the world supporting their software products and international distributors.

By 1997, their partnership broke up and Mr. Matheny relaunched the CSF software as the Pattern Forecaster Plus. For more than 5 years, he continued to expand the product's features and capabilities for active traders. This allowed Mr. Matheny to honor and support his existing CSF clients as well as to rebrand the product going forward.

In 2000, Mr. Matheny began developing specialized trading solutions for clients in various platforms (eSignal and TradeStation). This new development consulting business started because one of his existing clients wanted to explore trading ideas and asked Mr. Matheny for help. Over the course of many months, Mr. Matheny began taking on other new clients and building verious types of fully automated trading systems and price modeling systems.

By this time, Mr. Matheny had gained the experience of almost 2 decades in the industry. He had been exposed and trained by some of the best traders alive in the 1980s and 1990s. He had experienced many various price theories, studies and concepts and understood them in real trading terms. Additionally, he had experience in creating "adaptive/learning/AI" models. Thus, he became an incredible resource for clients wanting to develop automated systems or price modeling systems.

Economic Super-Cycle Research

One of the most interesting projects we've undertaken over the past 4+ years is the study and understanding of economic super-cycles. These are the massive price cycle rotations (think of the 2000 DOT COM bubble and the 2007-08 Credit Market bubble) that can destroy wealth and opportunity very quickly. We've spent thousands of hours modeling and developing preditive modeling tools to help everyone prepare for these events and to profit from them. Our book, Change Your Thinking - Change Your Future, illustrates just how important these super-cycles are and how we use our specialized software tools to stay ahead of them.
