Zack Armstrong

Benzinga Staff Writer

About

Welcome! My name is Zack Armstrong, and I hold a degree in Finance and Economics from Michigan State University. I developed a passion for equities following the 2008 crisis, which led to my first investment in 2009. Now I am the Founder & CEO of TheSmarterInvestor.org and regularly contribute to Benzinga.com. I am also a candidate for the June 2013 CFA Level 1 examination. Since my first investment in 2009 my strategy has transformed from mostly fundamental analysis to almost entirely technical analysis, where I found the most success. I am here to share my knowledge and passion for trading, as well as my successful strategy for trading multiple time frames. Make sure to check out The Technical Breakout Trader on Marketfy.com for my 100% transparent trade alert service!
