Chris Chaitow went into the City in 1964 and worked for a number of broking partnerships, moving on to investment banks after ‘Big Bang’. He started studying technical analysis in 1966 and in 1986 was part of a team which developed Value and Momentum, which combined technical trends with quantitative value techniques and delivered above market performance for many years. Around 2000 he helped progress this by adding a quality measure, to develop a system known as Tricast. In the 1980s and 1990s he was regularly voted number one European technical analyst in Institutional Investor and Reuters polls.
Chris was involved in the early days of ACTA and was an original committee member. He is now retired and lives in Thailand.
