Trevor Neil is Founder, Director and Technical Analyst of Behavioural Economics and Technical Analysis Group (BETA Group) in Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent, UK and has been a trader since he started work on the floor of the London Coffee Exchange in 1975.. Moving off the floor to become a broker, he became interested in technical analysis. This was the time charting was moving off graph paper onto computers. When the LIFFE market opened in London, he moved to trading financial futures and later into foreign exchange and equities. He moved firms, changing jobs into fund manager and technical analyst.
He returned to the floor of LIFFE for a year in 1997 in the Bund pit. In 1999 he became Head of Technical Analysis at Bloomberg where he worked on improving the charting on the platform and promoting its use as a technical analysis tool and new functions like DeMark studies. In 2003, missing the markets, he formed a hedge fund with a colleague and moved to South Africa.
He returned to the UK in 2004 and formed BETA Group (www.betagroup.co.uk) which offers technical analysis consultancy. It offers market timing skills training for dealers, trader mentoring, system development consultancy. He is in partnership with Julius DeKampenaer in Relative Rotation Graphs, a popular new function on Bloomberg. With Catalin Plapacianu, he has developed a number of original indicators, the first of which, TNCP Triangulation will be released on Bloomberg in July 2011.
