About Corey Rosenbloom, CMT

Corey Rosenbloom, CMT is the founder of www.afraidtotrade.com, a website dedicated to helping traders overcome fears through education.  He received a dual-baccalaureate degree in Psychology (Cognitive) and Political Science and a Master’s Degree in Public Affairs with a concentration in Business.  In 2009, he was awarded the Chartered Market Technician (CMT) professional designation.
He began investing using fundamental analysis in 1998 during the run-up to the market top in 2000, and the ensuing bear market opened his awareness to the field of technical analysis as a way to enhance performance and manage risk more effectively. Having also incorporated sector rotation and intermarket analysis into his investment and tradingstrategy, Mr. Rosenbloom switched to shorter time frame trading tactics to capture additional edge from the price action and trends.
He began writing the AfraidtoTrade.com blog to share some of his experiences and define strategies, which detail his unique style of incorporating both the larger perspective of intermarket analysis with the shorter, intraday trading strategies that can be employed to minimize risk.
In addition to classic price and momentum principles, Corey incorporates basic Elliott Wave and advanced Fibonacci techniques as well as his insights into trading psychology and edge-optimization tactics through daily commentary, education, seminars, and research in the field of technical analysis.
