Wayne Whaley

Wayne Whaley, CTA, earned a B.S. degree in Mathematics from Jacksonville State University in 1979 and received a Masters Degree in Operations Research in 1981 from the Georgia Institute of Technology, where he received his first exposure to the mathematical modeling of probabilistic models.

After Wayne’s formal education, he migrated to Huntsville, AL, where he was employed from 1981- 1993 as a system analyst for two different defense contractors. In 1993, he decided to take a shot at converting his hobby into a career and accepted an entry level research analyst position with Witter & Lester, a Huntsville, Al. based CTA.

Wayne became a partner at Witter & Lester in 1999. He now trades the company’s assets, but still considers his primary role as that of the research department. Over the last three years, Wayne has been converting, what he considers to be the best of his S&P models, to a daily evaluation of 13 different commodity indexes. Wayne’s weekly commentary is available per subscription, as are three very successful trading programs. Mr. Whaley was the recipient of the 2010 Charles Dow Award from the Market Technicians Association for his research paper, ‘Planes, Trains, & Automobiles, a Survey or Momentum Thrust Signals’.
