Robert R. Prechter, Jr., CMT, began his professional career in 1975 as a Technical Market Specialist with the Merrill Lynch Market Analysis Department in New York. He has been publishing The Elliott Wave Theorist, a monthly forecasting publication, since 1979. Currently he is president of Elliott Wave International, which publishes analysis of global stock, bond, currency, metals and energy markets. He is also Executive Director of the Socionomic Institute, a research group. Mr. Prechter has won numerous awards for market timing, including the United States Trading Championship, and in 1989 was awarded the "Guru of the Decade'' title by Financial News Network (now CNBC). He has been named "one of the premier timers in stock market history" by Timer Digest, "the champion market forecaster" by Fortune magazine, "the world leader in Elliott Wave interpretation" by The Securities Institute, and "the nation's foremost proponent of the Elliott Wave method of forecasting" by The New York Times.

Mr. Prechter is author, co-author and/or editor of 13 books, including "Elliott Wave Principle - Key to Market Behavior" (1978), "R.N. Elliott's Masterworks" (1980), "The Wave Principle of Human Social Behavior and the New Science of Socionomics" (1999), "Conquer the Crash" (2002), and "Pioneering Studies in Socionomics" (2003).

In 1999 he created the Socionomics Institute, of which he is Executive Director. The institute is an independent think-tank whose mission is to develop socionomics as an academic discipline and to promote its commercial application. Recently, Mr. Prechter has made presentations on his socionomic theory to MIT, the London School of Economics and academic conferences.
