Interview: Market Data Insights With John Ehlers by Karl Montevirgen

John F. Ehlers is a market technician with a specialty in the study of market data and cycles, as well as using that data more effectively to develop trading strategies. In the early 1980s, around the same time this magazine was launched, he was pioneering new ways to accurately measure market cycles using engineering techniques discovered during his time as a Senior Engineering Fellow with Raytheon and during his work on various special projects including SkyLab.

Ehlers is president of MESA Software and cofounder of and MESA Software offers algorithmic trading strategies that adapt to different markets and market conditions by dynamically tuning the strategy using cycle measurements.

A Contributing Editor to this magazine, he has contributed more than 80 articles to STOCKS & COMMODITIES since 1983. Across this large body of work, he has presented breakthrough research; new indicators, filters, and analysis techniques; and methods to gain earlier trading signals.

Books written by Ehlers include
