Author of Fractal Geometry of the Stock Market

David Poe is a scientist and an engineer and has studied technical analysis of the stock market for over 20 years. He has a Bachelor of Science degree in electronics engineering and worked for 22 years in the analytical instrument business at Varian Instruments, Thermo Fisher Scientific, and Spectro Analytical Instruments. These instruments measure elements and chemical compounds. (Gas Chromatography, Liquid Chromatography, Ion Chromatography, Mass Spectrometers, UV/Visible Spectrometers, Atomic Absorption Spectrometers, and Inductively Coupled Plasma- Optical Emission Spectrometers.) This type of instrumentation is used in pharmaceutical, medical, forensic, petrochemical, semiconductor, environmental, precious metals, university research, military, water, and food laboratories. David installs these instruments, develops methods, trains chemists and PhD’s, and troubleshoots optical, electronic, pneumatic, mechanical, chemistry, and computer related problems.

Spectro ICP

Analytical instruments use scientifically proven properties of elements and compounds to precisely measure their concentrations. For example, with an AA or ICP, we can determine the mercury, lead, and arsenic content in a water sample, or the iron, silver, and calcium content in a soil sample. Since every element has a unique electronic configuration of protons, neutrons, and electrons, every element emits light at unique frequencies when ionized. The light emission from each element is proportional to the concentration, and we measure this precisely with a spectrometer. This is the same process that causes a flame to emit different colors of light. Chromatography uses a different technique to separate the compounds. With a GC, we can determine the methane, ethane, and butane content in a natural gas sample. With an LC, we can determine the concentrations of the active ingredients and contaminants in pharmaceuticals.

Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometer Raw Data

A big part of this work is mathematically interpreting raw data in various dimensions such as wavelength to spectral emission, atomic mass to charge ratio to intensity, or time to absorbance to wavelength. Using independent standards and specialized software, every analysis is statistically proven. If certain protocols are followed, the results can be used in a court of law. Some of the math used in the cycles, and described in the report, is based on the specialized data handling techniques used in analytical instrumentation. Stock charts are much like the raw data in a chromatogram or a spectral plot.

David has studied stock and commodity markets since 1995. He traded and researched markets full time for over 10 years. He eventually learned that the stock market did not follow traditional logic. Important measurements like price to earnings ratios got out of line with what is considered normal, and remained out of line for long periods of time. This inspired him to research the real forces that drove the stock market. His analysis of the stock market is established using mathematic cycles, algorithms, and pattern recognition. Fractal Geometry of the Stock Market is the result of thousands of hours of research.
