Martin J. Pring

Investment Strategist · Walnut Creek

Intrigued by the dynamics of financial market behavior, Martin founded Pring Research in 1978 by providing research for investment advisors and financial institutions. Since 1984, he has published the Intermarket Review, a monthly global market report that analyzes the world’s principal financial markets. He has written more than 20 books on investing such as asset allocation, market psychology and investing around the business cycle. His widely popular book, “Technical Analysis Explained”, has been translated into 8 languages and for several decades was required reading for the Chartered Market Technician’s (CMT) designation. Their shared interest in business cycle investing led Martin to join with Joe Turner and co-found Pring Turner Investment Managment, a fee-only investment advisor located in Walnut Creek, California. Martin, in collaboration with Dow Jones Indexes, co-developed the Dow Jones Pring U.S. Business Cycle Index in 2012, a unique index based on the financial advisory firm’s “Six-Stage” business cycle investment strategy. Martin has been adjunct professor at Golden Gate University in San Francisco teaching the world’s first virtual graduate level course on technical analysis. He has been honored by his peers with several lifetime achievement awards recognizing his career-long investment research contributions. Martin has traveled the world visiting more than 30 countries as an invited speaker to financial institutions and professional investment groups.
