Wall Street is known as a land of secrets. It is a place where incredible sums of money are made and lost every day, and often the key to maintaining a profit is making sure that the other players don’t know your next move. Whether it is a particular take on a set of facts, or a particular piece of data that others have overlooked, information can turn the tide, and it is rarely given away for free.
Nowhere is this more true than in ‘algo’ trading. Algorithmic trading, or trading based wholly or in part on the results of computer algorithms, is a relatively new, and highly secretive industry. Computers don’t discriminate, and a program that works for you will just as easily work for your competition, so naturally the details of one’s process would become secret by necessity.
However not everyone lives by this rule. Jordan Lindsey, founder of JCL Capital, operates on a very different wavelength. A self taught programmer and trader, he was an early adopter of algorithmic trading, especially in the realms of FOREX and cryptocurrency. A lover of sports and a traveling philanthropist, he does not fit the stereotype of a Wall Street trader or a lifetime computer nerd. However, his technical skills have been proven in the market, and he has consistently worked towards a goal of making market trading accessible to the average individual.
Lindsey’s JCL Capital was founded not only to make profitable trades, but to provide a forum for people to gather, discuss trading, and learn how to profitably trade using proven analytical methods and relevant data. To this end, Jordan Lindsey has continued to make his methodology public, providing real time market analysis and explanations of analytical methods to the general public.
This openness has extended into Lindsey’s work with cryptocurrencies. He has created an autonomous bot designed to analyze data in crypto trends to predict the rise and fall of coin prices. Designed to operate efficiently and transparently, it is another facet of a more public minded trading philosophy.
All together, Jordan Lindsey brings a surprisingly open and communicative trading career to what is traditionally a silent and secretive field.
