Craig Johnson, CMT, CFA joins Fill the Gap for Episode #29 where we explore the detailed and comprehensive technical process the Piper Sandler technical research team takes every month to produce informed investors.
Craig issued a contrarian bullish call on the S&P 500 going into 2023 based solely on the information provided by the markets. Using classic trend analysis, his team simply highlighted the series of higher highs and higher lows appearing in the equity index. But their process is revealed in the 300+ pages of the “Informed Investor” research report which delivers in-depth analysis of sectors, industry subgroups and a healthy appreciation for relative strength.
Craig has a deep appreciation for the analysts who preceded him at Piper Sandler including Steve Leuthold who sadly passed in March, 2023, and Ed Nikoski who Craig worked with closely before his retirement. There is a strong technical analysis community in Minnesota which now includes Ralph Acampora, CMT. However, he reflects on the advantage of being outside New York where independent thinking and contrarian viewpoint can flourish based solely on the message of the market.
This episode also explores some remarkable alternatives to home heating in the depths of Minnesota’s sub-zero winters! Enjoy this conversation with Chief Technical Strategist and former president of CMT Association, Craig Johnson, CMT, CFA.
