We are thrilled to announce that Ron William has agreed to join the FSC as the new Development Director.
"The development and growth of the FSC, building on the vision and heritage of Edward R. Dewey, is an important mission, especially for future generations ahead," said William.
Ron William, CFTe, is a market strategist and educator/mentor with more than 20 years of experience working for leading economic research and institutional firms and producing tactical research and trading strategies. He specializes in global, multi-asset, top-down framework, grounded in behavioral technical analysis, driven by cycles based on the "Roadmap" signature model of veteran market technician Robin Griffiths, published in his book Mapping the Markets.
Ron also applies a "market and mind" approach at IntensiChi, using the latest techniques in behavioral-risk models and neuroscience sourced from expert groups. He further supplements with mentoring/coaching, trained by the International Coaching Federation (ICF), and teaches a regulatory approved masterclass in Applied Behavioral Science with investment, private banks, and CFA Societies.
Ron's primary work, as part of his current institutional market advisory firm (RWA), acquired global industry recognition as winner of “Best FX Research” in 2020. Financial media programs and industry publications regularly feature his market insights, including Is the big cycle about to turn?, predicting the 2020 crash and alerting the “Minsky paradigm” of 2020 H2-2022.
Driven by high-integrity education, Ron serves as part of the education committee of the International Federation of Technical Analysts (IFTA), heads the SAMT Geneva Chapter, and is an honorary member of ESTA. He is also a visiting lecturer at leading universities, active guest speaker for the CFA, CAIA and CISI, and senior teacher at colleges offering an accredited diploma in trading and investing.
It is with a deep appreciation for the contributions of Richard Mogey to the Foundation for the Study of Cycles that we share with you the sad news of his recent passing.
Richard took on the role of Executive Director of the FSC back in 1990 and shepherded the FSC through over two decades during difficult times. Through it all, Richard tirelessly carried on the true tradition of Edward Dewey in determining accurate cycles periods and phases and curating valuable data. He answered cycles skeptics with accurate data, impeccable results, and considerable grace. Moreover, he was a great help to countless other cycles researchers over the years, many of whom cite Richard’s influence over their own work.
The passing of Richard is a great loss to the cycles community. We will miss him and remember his dedication and integrity.
We are very saddened to report that Mark McVey, our Chief Operating Officer, has passed away. He has been an invaluable part of managing the daily operations of the FSC since early 2020.
The Board and staff will deeply miss his exuberant energy and enthusiasm. Beyond his meaningful work with the FSC, he was a really good person – kind, quick to laugh, and genuinely caring. He had a profound respect and fondness for our Membership, and his dedication to furthering the FSC’s mission was second only to his love of being a father. Our thoughts are with his family.
Because Mark was doing most of the day-to-day work, we ask that you please bear with us as we pick up the pieces and redistribute his responsibilities.
Thank you for your continued support.
