Founder: Donald L. Knepp
An outside the box type, someone who likes to look and think forward maybe best describes Don Knepp. He grew up on a central Illinois farm and uses the iconic 1950’s Oliver 88 tractor as his symbol.
Mr Knepp holds a B.S. and M.S in Agriculture Economics with some involvement in Industrial Psychology through his masters thesis project using the Birkman Method. This method of testing is designed to provide insight into what specifically drives a person’s behavior, with the goal of creating greater choice and more self-responsibility. It attempts to measure social behaviors, underlying expectations of interpersonal and task actions, potential stress reactions to unmet expectations, occupational preferences and organizational strengths.
Mr Knepp’s career involved trading markets, economic consulting, and AI trading software development in Chicago since 1970. A special memory that helped formulate his long term vision was a freshman level course in Logic and Design taught by Buckminister Fuller at Southern Illinois University in 1962.

We introduced this site on January 22, 2008. A confluence of events had made it apparent that we should go beyond the occasional emails that we had sent out over the past five years that have focused on the forces affecting the markets, the economy, and the political arena. Our objective has been and continues to follow a contrarian / defensive posture towards investing.
Implementation of the objective involves usage of ETF’s in all areas of investing, stocks, interest rates, currencies, commodities/oil, and precious metals.
