Robert is a part-time trader, consultant and educator. Having gained a degree in Mechanical Engineering, Robert spent many years working in professional IT roles including hands-on technical support roles, network management, and IT operations management. Robert has followed the sharemarket for many years, with two key events provoking much more interest — misguided advice from a financial adviser in 1986, and the tech stock crash of 2000.

John MacLeod has a background in using Predictive and Trigger Based Modelling Analytics and has worked as a consultant to develop predictive and segmentation models in consumer banking and mass marketing, and has applied this expertise to the ASX stock markets as well. John's trading philosophy has almost entirely been based on the use of analytics, in other words if you cannot analytically model the stock then you can not reliably trade it. John considers every stock to have individual and distinct drivers of price behaviour that also subtly change with time therefore he seeks to dynamically model the estimated future price of each stock separately at different future points in time using Support Vector Machine (SVM) modelling techniques.
