Larry Williams: Where will he go next?
Larry Williams—author, trader, technical systems designer—is a man of many interests. He began
following the stock market in 1965, soon started trading and by 1967 was a registered investment
adviser. He switched to commodities and is probably best known for the $1 million he made and wrote
about in the 1973 bull market.
At age 45, he has, among other things, run for the United States Senate in his home state of Montana and
narrowly lost, carried on a busy lecture/seminar circuit while managing his trading from airport
telephones, written trading books, developed a number of computer trading systems and refined the %R
oscillator into a tool that is now a standard for many traders.
The one consistent theme in his varied life—trading—is once again dominating his activities. He is
limiting his public exposure and ended the publication of Commodity Timing newsletter in January.
Stocks & Commodities talked with Larry at his California office where he is intent on the markets and
on refining his systems.
