Professional Experience

Academic History

  • Davey writes the monthly column "Algo Q&A" for the Technical Analysis of Stocks and Commodities magazine
  • With a background in aerospace engineering and quality assurance, he brings a unique perspective to trading. "In aerospace, the product I worked on had to work 100% of the time, or the engine would fail. That is not a good thing when you are 35,000 feet in the air. Working in a flight critical industry gave me tools, such as statistical process control, six sigma methodologies, design of experiments, and continuous improvement, to transfer over into the trading world."
  • Currently, Davey trades full time, writes trading related articles, and gives trading webinars, including his award-winning Strategy Factory workshop.
  • He is also available for one on one mentoring or consultation.
  • He continuously develops new trading systems and strategies. "Markets are ever-changing, so my new system development work is a critical part of my success."
