Meet the Author

Hima Reddy, CMT, was first introduced to technical analysis, and to the works of W.D. Gann, during her high school years by her father, who has had a passion for trading and the markets since the early 1980s. However, it wasn’t until after she completed an undergraduate Finance degree at Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business, and returned to her home state of New York in 2001, that she immersed herself in the markets. She simultaneously volunteered as a sponsorship coordinator for several Market Technicians Association conferences, traded equity and commodity futures under the tutelage and guidance of her father, and completed the Chartered Market Technician certification. In 2006, she joined Informa Global Markets, an independent financial research firm providing live, 24-hour market analysis. As Senior Technical Analyst, she was responsible for producing timely and accurate short-term technical analysis and trading strategies for fixed income and FX markets. With analysis ranging through multiple timeframes, her team also prepared written updates covering longer-term trends. Hima’s “guru” has always been Gann—the first market analysis book she ever studied in-depth was How to Make Profits in Commodities—and to this day that is her go-to guide to the markets. Since 2011 she has returned to trading independently and continues to write about the financial markets. Her primary methods of technical analysis include pattern recognition and time duration relationships within markets based on Gann’s methodology, momentum assessment through the use of the Relative Strength Index (RSI), Fibonacci relationships, and moving average systems including the use of channels for trade management. Hima now resides with her husband in Baltimore, Maryland.
