Adam Grimes has over two decades experience as a trader and system developer. He’s worked for small firms and big firms, from the farmlands of the Ohio Valley to the trading floors of the New York Mercantile Exchange. In addition to his work with MarketLife, he is also the Chief Investment Officer and Managing Partner of Waverly Advisors, LLC, an institutional research and advisory firm for which he writes daily market commentary. Adam is the author of the The Art & Science of Technical Analysis: Market Structure, Price Action, and Trading Strategies (Wiley 2012). He is also a contributing author for many publications on quantitative finance and trading, and is much in demand as a speaker and lecturer.
In addition to being a trader, Adam also has deep training in classical music (piano and composition) and classical French cooking. His perspective is both deeply quantitative and practical, and he has done extensive personal work developing his skills as a teacher, coach, and mentor. He is fascinated by the limits of human knowledge and peak performance—specifically, how do we get there and stay there, and how to teach others to do the same? Adam’s relentless focus on trading excellence and self-development through financial markets has created a unique body of work that has helped many traders move along the path to trading success.
