Jody Elliss was born in Hobart, Tasmania, in 1962. In 1983, while establishing a career in corporate banking, he began trading, managing to sell his entire portfolio just before the 1987 crash. Since then he has experienced success trading options and contracts for difference (CFDs) and made tremendous returns on the share price index (SPI) market for both his clients and himself.
Based on his success, Jody has been a guest presenter for the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX), Australian Technical Analysts Association, and the Australian Investment Association (AIA). He presents topics on Gann and Fibonacci, CFDs, SPI futures trading, software introduction, trading opportunities and his ‘follow the big money indicators’ program.
Jody is the CEO of the Investment Centre, the largest provider of stock market and financial data in Australia. The centre supplies data to organisations such as Channel Seven, SBS and Paritech, as well as retail investment solutions with its software package, IC-Investor.
He supplies technical trading and investment advice to the Australian Stock Report, the Australian College of Financial Education (ACOFE) and the Australian College of Share Trading. Over the last five years his forecasts have maintained an accuracy of over 72 per cent.
Jody has authored three books and had numerous articles published in magazines and newspapers. In 2003 he won the Australian Independent Analysts Award.
Jody lives in Brisbane with his wife, Megan, and his children, Porscha, Maclaren and Jordan (yes, they are all named after cars). Jody is passionate about his cars and has been a Porsche addict for more than 15 years. When he is not trading, lecturing or writing books, Jody enjoys sailing, boating and the occasional day on the racetrack in one of his favourite cars.
