JC Parets · The Evolution Of Becoming A Technician w/ Brian G @alphacharts On this episode of the podcast, Steve Strazza and I sit down with Brian G, who many of you will recognize as @AlphaCharts on Twitter. I've been following Brian for many years and love a lot of the work he puts out. It was really fun hearing his story about how he became a technician. It isn't something that happens overnight, that's for sure. It's a process. First we get into the evolution...

JC Parets · Momentum, Breadth & Seasonality w/ Ed Clissold, Chief U.S. Strategist at Ned David Research On this episode of the podcast, I sit down with Ed Clissold, Chief U.S. Strategist at Ned Davis Research.

JC Parets · Why Does Fibonacci Work? You guys know that I use Fibonacci levels to help us identify targets and manage risk. And you've all seen it work, with your own eyes, for many years. I have too, of course, as one of the gang here calculating these levels every day. But I've never quite understood WHY it works. How come these numbers keep showing up all over Nature. Why do the prices of stocks and other assets keep respecting these levels? When I get...

JC Parets · Talking About Humans w/ David Keller On this week's episode of the podcast, I sit down with David Keller to talk about all things behavioral finance.

JC Parets · Two Technicians Talking Charts w/ Ian McMillan In this podcast episode I sit down with Ian McMillan to talk charts and answer the question: Why Technical Analysis? Ian makes some good points about Financial Advisors who “buy and hold”, that you can often find at the golf course. He’s always striving to be the opposite of that. When it comes to the market, we dive right in to talk market internals, major trends, Gold, Energy and Bitcoin. Ian and I have...

JC Parets · DeFi & Technical Analysis | My Conversation w/ Jim Bianco, CMT The DeFi Revolution is upon us, at least according to Jim Bianco. For many years, I've looked up to Jim and the work he's been doing at Bianco Research and, in fact, he's the one who first inspired me to rip through hundreds of charts during my live presentations in order to get my points across. It took me about a decade to realize it, but it was him who I got that from. Fast forward to 2021, and the...

JC Parets · One on One with Meb Faber - All Things ETFs, Momentum & Value This week on the podcast I sit down with Meb Faber, Co-Founder, CEO and CIO of Cambia Investments. In addition to his "Day job", as he puts it, Meb has authored 5 investment books, a countless amount of white papers, and is also a very popular follow on Twtter @MebFaber. This was really fun for me because Meb is an expert at a lot of things that I am just not, like what happens behind the scenes at...

JC Parets · A Canadian Perspective w/ CIBC Portfolio Manager David Cox In a market environment where Financials and Natural Resources have become leadership groups, how do we not have a conversation about Canada? Taking that one step further, we need to talk about how any investor, whether living in Canada or not, can take advantage of a potential structural swing in the trend for Canadian Equities. David Cox is someone who I’ve discussed markets with for many years. We usually...

JC Parets · The Money Game: NO! Not Everything Happens For A Reason (EP.18) In the latest episode of The Money Game, Phil and I talk about the old cliché, ‘Everything happens for a reason’. It’s funny because it doesn’t. Not everything happens for a reason. What’s the reason? It’s hard for humans to accept the element of randomness. Sure, good things can happen after a tough breakup or losing your job. Like you can meet your future wife or start a successful business, all...

JC Parets · The Bitcoin Episode w/ Greg King, Founder & CEO of OSPREY Funds Bitcoin is a market that we are very fond of here at Allstarcharts. You've heard me say it plenty: it's a beautiful case study for Technical Analysis. It's not a company. There are no fundamentals. And you guys have watched us analyze the behavior of Bitcoin and other Crypto Currencies since early 2016. It's been pretty amazing to watch and participate in a new market like this. They...

JC Parets · Sector Rotation w/ Jonathan Krinsky, Chief Market Technician at Bay Crest Partners This week on the podcast, Jonathan Krinsky joins me for a chat about Sector Rotation. While the Mega-cap names like Apple, Google, Facebook, Amazon and Microsoft grinded sideways, or even down, since August, the Small-caps, Mid-caps and Micro-cap names have been the leaders. What happens if the Mega-caps break out of these bases to new all-time highs? Does the sector rotation continue? Or do...

JC Parets · Technical Analysis Radio Interviews: Veteran Technical Analyst, Jeff Weiss, CMT This week on the podcast, I'm thrilled to have Jeff Weiss, CMT join me for a really fun chat. If you know Jeff, you already know that he's quite the character. The stories he has from his early days in the 1960s and 70s are awesome. Have you ever heard of a squawk box? How about quote machines that you had to stand in line to use, and would still only get one stock quote at a time? In...

Next July, whoever ended up picking the best trade gets a...

JC Parets · The "Post-Spreadsheet" World | JC & Howard Lindzon on Happy Hour w/ Traders This week on Happy Hour w/ Traders, I sit down with venture capitalist Howard Lindzon. He’s a Tech investor, or that’s what it feels like from my perspective. So my question was how he invests when money is rotating out of large-cap tech and into other areas? This sparked an interesting conversation about using today’s tools to generate new ideas, even if they’re out of your wheelhouse....

JC Parets · Post U.S. Election Special | My Interview on Opto Sessions with Ed Gotham On this week's podcast, I wanted to share a recent interview I did on Opto Sessions with Ed Gotham over in London England. Our chat took place on Thursday afternoon November 5, 2020, just a couple of days after an unresolved election. My main points revolved around focusing on price trends and worrying less about election results, at least as far as portfolio decisions are concerned. Ed...

JC Parets · Technical Analysis Radio Interviews: Hedge Fund Manager, Mark Dow Mark Dow has been a guest on this podcast more times than anyone else for a good reason. Selfishly I always enjoy chatting with him. His perspective is fascinating to me because he does such brilliant job of combining price behavior with sentiment analysis and the global macro intermarket backdrop. Mark worked for the U.S. Treasury Department in charge of Emerging Markets in the early 90s before...

Think about it, Jack has interviewed the greatest traders in history. All of them. It’s incredible. And you know what strategies he uses to trade his own personal...

JC Parets · The Money Game: Experiences Over Things (EP.17) In this episode of The Money Game, Phil asks about what's most important to me. Is it collecting material things, or enjoying experiences with family and friends? For me, it's quite obvious after looking back that I've enjoyed my experiences traveling throughout Asia and Europe with my wife. I remember my Dad let me skip school when I was 11 years old to go to Marlins Opening Day in 1993 (My mom was thrilled...

JC Parets · Technical Analysis & Financial Media: A Conversation w/ Frances Horodelski In this episode I get to chat with one of my all-time favorite journalists, Frances Horodelski. She was one of the first people to interview me on TV when I was still in my 20s and I don't forget that. She believed in me early on. That's really cool. We've continued to do interviews together over the years but today I flip the script and ask HER the tough questions. We discuss the role of...

JC Parets · The Sooner We Can Find Out We’re Wrong The Better | My Interview on The Meb Faber Show Earlier this month Meb Faber invited me on to his podcast. I really enjoy doing these, especially when they’re a bit outside of the Technical community. While Meb is definitely “one of us”, in terms of how he views markets, his audience includes people who might not be as informed about technical analysis and its benefits. This is where I can try my best to do my part to spread the...
