From farmer to high school teacher to successful investor and financial advisor, Tom Scollon's career path has been diverse. Yet this interesting mix has resulted in far-reaching experience in a range of industries and enabled him to enjoy unmitigated success trading the markets. He has invested successfully on the Australian stockmarket for more than 20 years trading equities, options and other financial instruments using technical analysis techniques to determine trends and chart market movements. Tom believes that studying simple trends such as price and volume can reveal much about a stock’s prospects. He uses technical indicators such as “On Balance Volume”, “Bollinger Bands” and “Elliott Wave” to predict where the market might head next. He is a great teacher and in his articles he translates his views into easy-to-understand concepts for all levels of traders, and has thus developed a strong following over the years.
