Summary

After three decades as a trader, Patrick MontesDeOca founded The Equity Management Academy with the belief that “regular” investors could learn to trade like “Pros” when given the right tools.

Patrick and Director of Research Dr. Scot Macdonald’s accrued knowledge is embodied in the fully automated proprietary trading program, Variable Changing Price Momentum Indicator (VC PMI).

They offer subscribers to their SA Marketplace service, Mean Reversion Trading, regular reports and trading alerts on the S&P 500 E-mini, gold and silver.

Patrick discusses his unique approach to trading during the in-depth conversation that follows.

After 30 years working as a trader in New York and Chicago, Patrick MontesDeOca founded The Equity Management Academy out of a deeply held belief in the power of education to change investors’ financial outcomes. The Academy’s objective is to help all levels of traders from beginners to veterans become more effective at transforming knowledge into wealth. The centerpiece of the Academy is embodied in the fully automated proprietary trading program: the Variable Changing Price Momentum Indicator (VC PMI). The Academy also assists institutional traders and hedgers.

Patrick and his team at The Equity Management Academy joined Seeking Alpha as contributors in 2017. Their Seeking Alpha reports are based on the VC PMI analysis of various markets including S&P 500 (SPXS) (SPXL) E-mini futures, Gold (GDXJ), Silver (USLV) and Bitcoin. They are written by Scot Macdonald, PhD, who is the Director of Research for the Equity Management Academy.

This past December, Patrick and team launched their Mean Reversion Trading Marketplace service here at Seeking Alpha, offering key trading reports from The Equity Management Academy to Seeking Alpha’s subscriber base. These include:

  • Weekly reports for the gold, silver and E-mini S&P markets using the VC PMI
  • Precise entry, exit and stop points for day, swing or long-term trades
  • Special reports when a particular market warrants immediate attention
