Interview: Purely Technical-- Hamilton Lewis

From the day he arrived in the US from Liberia, Hamilton Lewis’s persistence took him through the securities industry’s maturation process to become a money manager with $95 million under his guidance. The unique thing about that? Lewis manages it all with technical tools, and classic tools at that: he’s a point-and-figure man, with a dash of cyclic analysis and candlestick charting thrown in. Currently based in Houston, TX, Lewis does a daily review of 300 actively traded equities, updating his charts by hand as he does so. STOCKS & COMMODITIES Technical Editor John Sweeney and Staff Writer Bruce Faber interviewed Hamilton Lewis via telephone on August 20 and August 23, 1999, asking him about his background, how an active manager speculates purely with technical tools, and his results in doing so.

How did you get started with your interest in the stock market? Eighteen years ago, I escaped to this country from Monrovia, Liberia, with $400 in my pocket. I had been playing on the Liberian national basketball team, so I managed to get an athletic scholarship to play college basketball.

What did you study? Financial management. While I was at college, one of my professors told me that I had a good way of working with people and finance. He also told me that he believed that financial planning would be the wave of the future, and I should consider that.
