Jacob is a true king of numbers and figures, and can talk for hours about the underlying mathematical principles behind each transaction, market movement and latest trend. He is a well-respected forex Market Analyst, having worked with some of the top financial institutions in the US, and brings his keen analytic insight here to ForexTraders.com.

He likes nothing better than introducing readers to currency charts and using his mathematical abilities to make sense of market analyses. There are few tools and trading instruments that Jacob is not familiar with, or hasn’t made use of in his time. Jacob is keen to stress that he isn’t just a human calculator. He is heavily involved in the field of finite world issues and has a deep interest in sustainable and ethical practice. Jacob is also an active member of his local community and often gives talks on both mathematics and finance.
