About the Author

Mark A. Lytle is a former knowledge worker for two oil majors with a passion for esoteric subjects. Deemed 'the little professor' as early as middle school, he graduated with a B.S. from Penn State and then rode off across the western United States in a Ford Quadravan doing Geochemical prospecting for the Gulf Oil Corporation, and later he performed I.T. work for Phillips Petroleum in Houston, Texas. On the side, he involved himself in several hobbies including Amateur Rocketry, Computer Programming, and Astronomy.

Experiencing the unpleasant ride of the 2000-2002 Tech bubble crash like many others, he decided to investigate whether any stone lay unturned in the field of Technical Analysis, which he felt had not performed as well as it should going into the crash. The results of several month immersion in the raw data of that period indicated that there were maths involved in the chart formations that were not that dissimilar to other fields of Science with which he had familiarity. The initial equation he found that produced a tight fit to the price data in all of the major indexes confirmed the method for isolating the remaining relationships. Several more years were required before the first iteration of the total system was revealed.

The project resulted in a self-published book and E-book in 2009, but a more comprehensive release waited for the real-time test of the math through online blogging from 2009 through 2012, with an audience. This testing was done to discover any remaining weaknesses or unsolved issues. While the work is still ongoing, it has reached a more mature stage for general distribution in 2018.
