Founding Editor, Systems & Forecasts
Founder, Signalert Asset Management
Gerald founded Signalert in 1973 after several years’ experience as a financial columnist and trader for his own account. He was among the pioneers of using technical analysis to trade mutual funds with the goal of increasing the safety of normally risky stock market investments. Among his many contributions to the field is his invention of the MACD indicator in the late 1970s, which is still widely used by traders.
At the time he founded Signalert, Gerald was a practicing psychotherapist. He graduated Brooklyn College and did his graduate studies at New York University.
Sr. Portfolio Manager/Research Analyst, Signalert Asset Management
In addition to the daily portfolio management of Signalert’s investment partnerships, Joon serves as a research analyst to perform quantitative analyses of both equity and bond markets.

Joon has over 19 years of industry experience and over 15 years of experience at Signalert Asset Management. He graduated from Colgate University with a B.A. degree in Economics. He later earned his M.B.A. in Finance from New York University. He is fluent in Korean.
