Frank cut his teeth in the stock market after his freshman year at The University of Texas at Austin in 1998, when he used student loan money to fund his first trading account. By his senior year, Frank was offered a position as a trading room intern at Nirvana Systems, a software firm specializing in the development of advanced trading platforms and proprietary trading tools. Within months, Frank was offered a full time position and later held the title of Sr. Market Analyst for the duration of his 10-year career. Frank’s unique trading experience and technological background made him a perfect fit for Nirvana’s forward-thinking mission of creating fully automated trading algorithms for clients, which was a lofty goal during the early days of algorithmic trading.
During his tenure at Nirvana, Frank wrote daily, multi-market commentary for SignalWatch for nine consecutive years, establishing the reputation as a premiere market forecaster. He also created the popular Trade Masters Series training, created and developed the ProfitBands plug-in, and traded in discretionary, mechanical, and fully-automated trading environments. Frank developed and deployed fully-automated trading algos using advanced Artificial Intelligence, including the use of Neural Networks and Genetic Algorithms. His research often headlined the company's annual trading conference, where he became known as a masterful speaker and educator.
Frank has given speeches for conferences and top trading organizations, including the Market Technicians Association (MTA), the Association for Technical Analysis (AfTA), the Denver Trading Group (DTG), and the Austin Association of Financial Traders (AAFT).
