This month on #TechnicalTuesdays I sat down with my friend Tommy Thornton.  Quick background on Tommy, he was a portfolio manager, senior trader and technical analyst with Level Global Investors and Galileo Capital.  He currently writes a daily market note for a select group of hedge fund managers & independent traders with a focus on market sentiment & DeMark Indicators.  In this post Tommy & I discuss his contrarian style of trading & why he uses DeMark Indicators to execute his strategy.  We chatted about using confirmation indicators to help with his execution & he shares with us his process for entering and exiting trades using DeMark Indicators.

Before you listen to the interview with Tommy I want to mention the Technical Analysis Guide by RJO Futures. I have it downloaded on my desktop and it’s a great resource for the basics of technical analysis.  If you’re interested in learning about the basics of technical analysis or if you’d like to have a solid resource on the basics of TA I highly recommend you download this free pdf (Click Here to download)
