Robert F. Smith comes to T3 as a true veteran of the Financial markets. After beginning his career at the age of 16 as a pit clerk on the Chicago Board Options Exchange, he then began full time in 1989 as a 16 year member of the Chicago Stock Exchange. During his tenure there, he performed duties ranging from Independent Trader, both a listed and OTC Specialist, as well as providing Technical Analytical Research to several firms on the trading floor.
Rob's belief is that the best way to gain insight about market direction is to review the charts of the stocks in the entire S&P 500 each night, which he has done consistently for over 20 years. Most recently, Rob has combined this belief by using pattern recognition and time frame continuity with an Inside Bar Timing Strategy that continues to gain popularity in the T3 Live community.
