Dr Kalvert Clark DC, DO, D Hom, D Astrology - Researcher and Author of Dow Song and Dow Dance.
Kalvert Clark spent approximately ten years with Phil Anderson at EIS lecturing, researching, and assisting Phil with his studies into W.D. Gann and Ganns extensive research in statistical analysis, planetary movements and their effects on markets..
Kalvert has lectured several times with the ATAA in Melbourne, and once in Brisbane in the days when it was safe to travel.
He has a passion for cycles, planetary cycles, statistics and is extremely critical of pie in the sky ideas. He believes in regressions, and he does not like curve-fitting. He uses Fourier analysis, autocorrelations, autoregressions, Coefficient of Variation. He likes to make these terms easy to understand with graphs. He likes his work to be robust (a statistical term), and he especially likes the work of Nassim Nicholas Taleb author of the Black Swan and Antifragile. He also likes the frankness of Neil Costa.
Gann made his annual forecasts months before the beginning of each year. How did Gann do this? Kalvert will explore Gann’s method and the subtleties involved. It will be in-depth, so the allotted time will be busy.
Previous talks at the ATAA have been on Cycles, Volatility and Planetary Forecasting. Although he was going to talk on these matters again, he realised that there was something more important that needed addressing. He was introduced to the concept of the Black Swan during the March meeting at the ATAA. Following the thoughts of Nassim Nicholas Taleb the author of the "Black Swan"., it became clear to Kalvert that he should talk about Taleb's ideas on ANTIFRAGILE as they relate directly to risk in the market.
