James E. Vick, Jr.



   James E. Vick, Jr. is Editor-in-Chief of The Indicant Stock Market Report. Mr. Vick has over thirty-five years of experience investing in the stock market. During his many years of investing, he discovered that over 75% of stock market advice was bad. He also noticed that half of that bad advice was motivated for the benefit of the advisor and not the investor. Consequently, Mr. Vick and his staff have developed a series of models that will detect the market's short-term, mid-term, and long-term intentions. 

   After working for two large Fortune 500 companies for twenty years, Mr. Vick was an international independent consultant for over ten years, helping large and small companies improve their supply chain and financial performance.

   In the early 1980's Mr. Vick, a specialist in Experimental Design techniques, tracked stock market advice and commentary. He discovered that approximately 67% was bad advice within the next twelve month period and worsened from that. Mr. Vick noticed that so-called "informational" media was merely a marketing channel for the "expert" as opposed to meaningful and helpful information. This led to the discovery of the "phenomenon of commonality."

    Anyone can become a member by clicking here. The number of allowable members is capped at between 50,000 and 75,000. If we detect that more than 1,000 members are mutual fund or institutional managers, we cap at 50,000 members. The reason for this is due to the phenomenon of commonality. Simply put, it is impossible for the crowd to be right in the stock market, much like a gambling casino. The Indicant never wants its timing releases to influence the stock market. All great timing models of the past ultimately failed when their creators oversold their advice.
