INTERVIEW - Modeling the Markets with Nelson Freeburg by Thom Hartle
I never could claim that I was a very good technical trader using conventional chart patterns. This absence of positive results in my own trading, combined with
my academic background in quantitative modeling, led me, finally, in the direction of system development.– Nelson Freeburg
