This is our way advancing the art of Technical Analysis and the proof of it is in our ability is an continuous uptrending Equity curve in our accounts.

Background
I am Jeff Toh and founder of the Academy of Stocks, Options, Futures and Forex. I am a Chartered Market Technician (CMT) with over 30 plus years of investing experience. Over the years, I have invested in mutual funds and stocks and traded in options, stocks and futures. I was an engineer in the telecommunications and broadcast industry for about 27 years since graduating from the University of Canterbury, New Zealand in 1986. One of my majoring subject was Expert Systems which has evolved and grown into Artificial Intelligence (AI, 爱) which I have utilised it in my trading systems.

Over the years, I have maintained an interest in AI (爱) and has seen its tremendous progress. Now, with the same dedication that I have spent over the nearly 3 decades in engineering and management, I am pioneering the use of algorithmic and AI (爱) in trading the global stocks, futures and forex market especially in the Asian region.

The Academy of Stocks, Options, Futures and Forex (SOFF Academy) has created our Artificial InteLLigence Heroine, LiLiHe (李丽鹤). The basic foundation behind LiliHe is the use of statistical analysis, fractals and waves momentum in Multi-TimeFrames. In greater details, it translate to Buying and Selling pressure using Pricing, Volume and Timing in multi-dimensions.

Fractals were made famous from the work done by Benoit Mandelbrot in Chaos Theory to describe the market seemingly random action. LiLiHe analyses and parses market data to seek out the superior market correlated signals in different timeframes. LiLiHe characterizes market conditions in the different timeframes and applies different algorithms as condition changes. The intent is to seek outsized returns of 30% – 150% in the markets (stocks, futures and forex) consistently.

I am the co-chair of the Malaysian Chapter of the Chartered Market Technicians Association. Please do not hesitate to contact me on jefftohch@gmail.com for any inquiries on training courses to take you to a long term journey to wealth!
