A native Chicagoan, D’mitri has been around since the days of watching the 15-minute-delayed ticker tape on Chicago’s Public Broadcasting Station’s “The Stock Market Observer” and phoning in orders to Olde Discount Brokerage.
One day, D’mitri watched a stock stop in mid air and change direction with no explanation that could be based in traditional technical analysis. Why did it do that? None of the conventional wisdom of the day could profer the answer to this dilemna. The epiphany that there must be a quantifiable cause behind market movements led to a commitment to study virtually every trading school and tehcnique and leave no stone unturned in the search for market truth.
And what is truth?
Pilate wasn’t the only one to wonder. Instead of building a better mousetrap to follow the market patterns of past data, can we ask if there are constants outside of market data that cause the fluctuations? Are these forces discernable? The journey has taken some well-traveled roads but has also uncovered those less traveled. Tens of thousands of hours of market time, thousands of hours studying books and courses, hundreds of hours trading, brain-picking trading professionals and prop firms, and even interviewing old Freemasons on their death bed.
The underlying causes that psychologically control worldwide supply and demand, or the true esoteric methods of W. D. Gann has boiled to the surface of that journey. CDT now embodies a hybrid method of market analysis that combines this ancient orphic knowledge with the market insider’s institutional market wisdom. Today D’mitri is considered one of the world’s foremost authorities on the true methods of W. D. Gann, a pioneer in applying W. D. Gann’s original analysis methods to modern markets, and a go-to on the hermetic writings of the “theosophical” authors of the early 1900s.
