About the Author

John is an Electrical Engineer, receiving his BSEE and MSEE from the University of Missouri and did his doctoral work at The George Washington University, specializing in Fields & Waves and Information Theory. He has retired as a Senior Engineering Fellow from Raytheon. He has been a private trader since 1976.

John is a pioneer in introducing the MESA cycles-measuring algorithm and the use of digital signal processing in technical analysis. He developed Maximum Entropy Spectrum Analysis (MESA) over three decades ago. The program has evolved with the increased capacity of modern computers.

John has written extensively about quantitative algorithmic trading using advanced DSP (Digital Signal Processing) and has spoken internationally on the subject. His books include “MESA and Trading Market Cycles,” “Rocket Science for Traders,” and “Cybernetic Analysis for Stocks and Futures.” His most recent book is “Cycle Analytics for Traders”, which contains new and unique filters and indicators. His approach is unique. Any technique must first work on theoretical waveforms before testing against real-world data is attempted.

John is a co-founder of and a principal of MESA Vector Asset Management.
