Julian Mason, PhD
For over a decade, Dr. Mason has been involved with applying his computer modeling and data analysis skills to the financial markets. He is a member of The Society of Technical Analysists (STA) and now freelances as an advanced top-down technical analyst (market, sector and instrument), developing a range of financial models to determine whether a company is deemed to be either under- or indeed over-valued. Work requires visualization, modeling and interpretation of complex financial data sets, for both trend analysis and price target projections . To enhance the proprietary chart indicators, which when primed with suitable working parameters, provide excellent analysis tools, Dr. Mason has become highly experienced in scripting complex custom hybrid and unique charting indicators, for trend analysis, which are optimized for performance by automated back testing using historical data over a range of market conditions. For stock market trading purposes, Dr. Mason specializes in writing coherent entry and exit trading strategies, across differing market conditions, to maximize profitability and minimize risk / reward ratios. Such strategies include processes to dynamically lock in profits. Current work includes development and maintenance of specific market indices, including the CTI (Cell Therapy Index) for Proteus, LLC.
Dr. Mason has a strong background and wide-ranging skillsets in applied physics, IT and analysis. After completing his PhD, Dr. Mason commenced work at Kingston University as a Course Director delivering predominately computer languages, scripted animation techniques, electronics / interfacing, mathematics and applied physics. He has since moved away from lecturing and is now concentrating on contract research. In 1998, Dr. Mason became a director at Figleaf IT Ltd.
