“I passionately provide stock and commodity futures traders and investors with technical and fundamental analysis, commentary on specific stocks, indices, futures trades and portfolio allocation to avoid risk, preserve capital and profit from mispriced valuations both short term & long term.” Kurt Kallaus
Kurt Kallaus is the author of Exec Spec and the KDelta trading model for stocks and all commodity futures. In the 1980’s, with a business degree and having worked in manufacturing, Kurt Kallaus engaged with a private Investment Partnership specializing in commodities and stock indexes.
He was certified a Commodity Trading Adviser (CTA) in 1985 (currently inactive) to provide advice and services related to trading in futures contracts, commodity options and swaps.
Kurt Kallaus launched the Exec Spec advisory newsletter with the onset of the great 1982 Bull Market. Along with a broad economic and long term perspective on the economy and major investment markets, Exec Spec’s unique breakout pattern trading model KDelta was created.
From this success Exec Spec turned private for over 20 years while a partner in a machine tool company in the early 1990’s. He placed fifth in the premiere national futures contest – World Cup Championship for futures trading.
During this period Kurt Kallaus was and remains a Director of investment funds for a charitable foundation he leads and has recently begun offering his expertise again to the public and financial wealth managers through Exec Spec.
Exec Spec is an advisory letter that uses technical and fundamental analysis to examine many financial markets, stocks and economic metrics. Since 1985 Exec Spec has created investment and trading models and offered forecasts, advice and trading signals for long and short term perspectives.
A unique editorial and broad graphic presentation is included in Exec Spec newsletters covering extensively US micro-economic sectors as well as macro. The global picture and forecast are also discussed as it is critical how it relates to the US economy, policy influences and asset valuation trends. Charts and investigative commentary examine US and Global details in economic growth, manufacturing, monetary factors, consumption credit risk and inflation to assess trends and investment portfolio allocation.
Exec Spec covers most stock indexes: SP 500, DOW (DJIA), SP Midcap, Nasdaq Composite and many foreign stock exchanges from a broad perspective as well as specific technical indicators and proxy metrics. In addition a separate short term hypothetical individual trading portfolio model record with current signals are offered.
Exec Spec forecasts and signals are offered covering all common currencies: US Dollar, Euro, Swiss, Aussie, Yen, Canadian, British Pound and New Zealand. In addition commentary and charts of less liquid currencies of key geopolitical and economically important countries such as Russia, China and Brazil are examined.
