About Greg Capra


Greg Capra is known as a pioneer of online investing and trading. In 1994, he began the first “Fax Letter” to educate investors and traders that wanted to be active and self-directed in the markets. As well as proving his trading recommendations.

In the late 1980s, Greg immersed himself into learning what moved the markets – and why.  Through what was mostly trial and error at the time, I realized that the widely accepted indicator-based mythology of technical analysis, which is still taught by the majority of education firms today, simply did not work.

Trying to determine the direction of prices from a derivative of the actual prices (indicators) makes no sense.

I call my approach to the investing and trading “Techno-Fundamentals.”  It combines Market Internals, Inter-market Analysis, and Technical Analysis.

Money managers, institutional traders, specialists, market makers and proprietary traders and thousands of individuals have taken Greg’s classes. There are also a growing number students that teach what they have learned at well-known firms.

Here is a partial list of Companies that you have likely heard of, but were unaware that they are students.

  • Online Trading Academy (OTA)
  • Ingresarios Trading
  • Affinity Trading
  • Fierce Trading
  • Live Traders
  • Major League Trading
  • Revolutionary Trading
  • T3 Live
  • Gap Edge Trading
  • Title Trading
  • Trendstar Trading Group

Many students attribute the knowledge they acquired under Greg’s tutelage as the main reason for their success. A true testament to Mr. Capra’s teaching and his method that they use to teach.

McGraw-Hill Publishing and Wiley Publishing each commissioned to author several books and DVDs on the subject of technical trading and investing.
