Martin Armstrong is the Forex Person of the Year 2015

FX Person of the Year 2015The Forex Person of the year 2015 is economist and financial strategist Martin Armstrong.

Martin Armstrong, once a financial strategist and advisor to over one trillion dollars of asset, developed a computer model based on the number Pi and other cyclical theories to predict economic turning points with eerie accuracy. He is the person behind the “Princeton Economics International” think tank. He is known to have predicted the crash of 1987 to the very day.

The Economic Confidence Model is an economic cycle theory by Martin A. Armstrong. Armstrong proposes that economic waves occur every 8.6 years, or 3141 days, which approximately Pi X 1000.

Adam Button is the Forex Person of The Year 2014

Forex Person Of The Year 2014The Forex Person of the year 2014 is Adam Button, the Managing editor of ForexLive.

When our team discussed who could be the person of the year 2014, it seemed that one and the same name was coming back and back again… Adam Button. Everyone seemed to agree that he has done an excellent job during the year at the front of ForexLive, strenthening an already successful model. In addition, his decision to take over the management of the company (together with  co-analysts Eamonn Sheridan, Mike Paterson and Ryan Littlestone) in September of this year represented a vital move for ForexLive but also excellent news for the sector with the arrival of a new independent website (ForexLive used to be property of the broker FXDD). Without Adam Button, ForexLive would not be what it is today and could even have died, with the damage that it would have caused on the Forex retail sector. Another remarkable and trader-oriented decision is the appointment of Greg Michalowski: he’s been brought in to help and make of ForexLive, almost only used by experienced traders, a website more accessible to newcomers. This way, ForexLive will expand his readership and at the same time promote the education of traders, something that FXStreet’s always supported.
