Founded by Owen Williams, CFA, DBA, in 2011, Williams Market Analytics, LLC offers regular market commentaries; access to actionable proprietary trading models; trade set-ups/idea generation; and external fund management. Our approach revolves around our quantitative work with our proprietary market indicators, complemented by a study of aggregate valuation metrics to keep sight of long-term, fair market values. While we monitor fundamental events, they do not influence our decisions since it is the market’s interpretation of the fundamentals that matters. Markets do not move based on personal opinions, nor do they care about the opinions of large Wall Street firms and strategists. Using a disciplined, systematic approach, we take emotions out of the equation which allows us to provide more consistent returns.
