Tom McClellan is the editor of the twice-monthly McClellan Market Report newsletter and its companion Daily Edition. He is a 1982 graduate of the U.S. Military Academy where he studied aerospace engineering, and he served 11 years in the U.S. Army as a helicopter pilot. Tom was raised in a household where study of the stock market was an ongoing pursuit. His parents Sherman and Marian McClellan created the McClellan Oscillator and McClellan Summation Index in 1969, and they were awarded the MTA's Lifetime Achievement Award in 2004. Tom began his own study of the markets while he was still in the Army, and in 1993 he left the Army to join his father in pursuing a new career doing this type of analysis. Tom views the movements of prices in the financial market through the eyes of an engineer, which allows him to focus on what the data really say rather than interpreting events according to the same "conventional wisdom" used by other analysts. Timer Digest ranks Tom as the #1 Gold Timer for the 10-year period ending in December 2009. He is their #6 stock market timer and #3 bond timer as of May 31, 2010. Tom lives in Lakewood, WA, and is one of the co-honchos of the Puget Sound MTA Chapter.
