When it comes to the applications of fundamental analysis in trading, I don’t know anyone superior to Chien. I have been trading for over 10 years and have never met anyone who has a deeper understanding of central banks, foreign currencies, inter-market correlations, and commodities like him. Chien not only has an academic knowledge about the subject matter discussed above, but he can apply this knowledge directly in trading. This is a very rare combination. Most people either have an ivory tower understanding of economics, but no idea how to apply that knowledge to an actual investment or trade. Either that, or you have traders who are more technical in nature and don’t understand the fundamentals well at all. Finally, above all, Chien is a great communicator and can convey this complex material in a manner that is easy to understand, especially for beginners. He gives real world examples, and takes time to make sure his audience is following along.
