What others are saying

"I have known Julius for many years. I am happy to recommend him as a market professional and technical analyst; most especially in the area of relative strength analysis in which he is something of an expert."

Head of Technical Analysis at major UK Hedge Fund (> $ 12BN)

"Julius' work on sector/industry momentum is unique and powerful. Dynamic is probably the best word to describe his rotation analysis and website. Highly recommended."

Chief Technical Analyst at $ 5BN investment manager and well-known author of several books on TA

"I have worked with Julius on several occasions and he proved himself to be one of the best, and most original, technical analysts in the European financial markets. He is also a first rate writer and speaker."

Chief Editor of a leading Technical Analysis Magazine

"Julius is a brilliant technical analyst and investment professional. The Relative Rotation Graph (RRG<GO> on Bloomberg), that he developed, is a simple, but enormously powerful, concept for putting market action across different asset classes or individual securities into a broader context. RRG is usable not only for long-term investments/asset management, but also as a "big picture" abalysis for short to intermediate term traders."

RRG Milestones.

    1999 - 2005Relative Rotation Graphs slowly came to life on the sell-side
    The idea for Relative Rotation Graphs, slowly came to life while Julius was working as a sell-side (technical) analyst covering the European stock universe for institutional investors. 
    2005First presentation on Relative Rotation Graphs
    Late 2005 Julius presented a very early version of Relative Rotation Graphs at a Bloomberg conference in Zurich.
    January 2011RRG<GO> launched on the BLOOMBERG professional services terminal
    In January 2011, Bloomberg embedded Relative Rotation Graphs as one of their 30k native functions under the mnemonic RRG<GO> and attracts several thousand hits per day.
    Following the launch on Bloomberg in January, we launched primarily for support and educational purposes.
    2012Market Analyst / Optuma implements RRG in their software
    Optuma, former Market Analyst, software was the first stand-alone software application embedding Relative Rotation Graphs. They now offer the most extensive toolset around RRGs in the industry.
    2013Thomson Reuters EIKON
    After a few meetings with TR management earlier in the year, they implemented Relative Rotation Graphs on their professional EIKON terminals later in 2013.
    In July 2014 adopted Relative Rotation Graphs on their platform and became "The home of RRG on the web". At the same time, Julius started to write a dedicated RRG-blog contributing 2-4 articles per month. 
    2016Hong Kong Economic Journal / EJFQ
    In 2016 EJFQ, the investor portal of the Hong Kong Economic Journal launched Relative Rotation Graphs covering the Hong Kong stock market.
    RRG API launched
    Following demand from (professional) users who wanted to feed their own systems with RRG data, we opened up our API to enable RRG data flowing into external applications like MatLab, Python, R, etc. 
    2016RRG Online
    During the course of 2016, we implemented a "light" version of Relative Rotation Graphs on our own site. This is meant to be a limited version of RRG covering only a handful of universes.
    2017-.....What's next?
    We continue to look for new partners who would like to work with us to add Relative Rotation Graphs their offerings to their clients/users. These can be brokers, websites, software packages, asset managers, etc.

    One of the things that we are working on at the moment is a desktop version for RRGs that uses price data stored locally on a user's computer. It will be an entry level implementation of Relative Rotation Graphs but it will allow people to use their own price data and render RRGs.

    And of course, we will continue the work with our existing partners to improve and enhance what we already have in place.
