Who is Chaikin Analytics?
About Marc Chaikin
After 40 years on Wall Street as a trader, stock broker, analyst and head of the options department for a major brokerage firm, Marc founded Chaikin Analytics LLC to deliver proven stock analytics to investors and traders, based on the Chaikin Power Gauge, a 20-factor alpha model proven effective at identifying a stock’s potential. Chaikin developed computerized stock selection models and technical indicators that have become industry standards (including Chaikin Money Flow) and pioneered the first real-time analytics workstation for portfolio managers and stock traders.
Chaikin Investments has collaborated with Nasdaq and IndexIQ to bring the Chaikin Power Gauge stock rating approach to the ETF marketplace for the first time. Marc and the Chaikin Analytics team rang the NASDAQ Opening Bell on April 30, 2018 to celebrate the one-year anniversary of this very successful launch. The Nasdaq Chaikin Indexes, powered by the Power Gauge Rating, have outperformed their benchmarks since their inception in April 2014.
