Bio: JOHN KOSAR, CMT
John Kosar, CMT, has more than 30 years of experience and insight in analyzing and forecasting global financial markets. John spent the first half of his career on the trading floor of the Chicago futures exchanges, where he had the opportunity to learn how the US financial markets work from the inside out. This experience, early in his career, became the foundation for his unique analysis, understanding of intermarket relationships, and global perspective. John incorporates a diverse and comprehensive blend of technical and quantitative metrics that tend to be more intuitive and forward‐looking than the typical Wall Street approach.
John is frequently quoted in the financial press in both the US and abroad including The Wall Street Journal, MarketWatch.com, Barron’s, Yahoo! Finance, CNBC.com, and Reuters. He can regularly be seen on U.S. financial television including CNBC, Fox Business, and Bloomberg, and is a frequent speaker at financial seminars and events across the country presented by organizations including the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Society, the National Association of Active Investment Managers (NAAIM), the Market Technicians Association (MTA), and the American Association of Individual Investors (AAII).
Penn State Berhend, the winning team of the Research Challenge, will be giving their presentation on F.N.B.
John has been consistently recognized as a top U.S. financial market analyst throughout his career and was awarded the Chartered Market Technician (CMT) designation in 1999. John served as Vice President of the Market Technicians Association (MTA) from 2004 to 2006 and was a member of its Board of Directors from 2002‐2006. During his career he has been an analyst and trader for Asbury Research, Shearson American Express, NatWest Markets, Greenwich Capital Markets, Deutsche Bank, and Bianco Research.
