About Us

Many financial advisors (FAs) invest their client's assets using the Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT). MPT is a theory of finance which attempts to maximize portfolio expected return for a given amount of portfolio risk, or equivalently minimize risk for a given level of expected return, by carefully choosing the proportions of various assets.

Although MPT is widely used in practice in the financial industry, in recent years the basic assumptions of MPT have been widely challenged by fields such as behavioral economics. One reason is due to the major fluctuations of the stock and bond markets. When both of these major entities are performing poorly, investors will be at high risk using this concept.

In nearly all portfolios of the MPT, a certain percentage is diversified in precious metals, such as gold and silver. The tradable Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) are GLD (gold) and SLV (silver). These stock indexes will always fluctuate over time. Trying to determine their price at any given moment based on economic conditions or fundamental analysis is nearly impossible.

Robert W Dillon, Ph.D. is the founder and chief technical chart analyst of GoldSilverSystem.com. Robert has over 30 years of experience trading the stock market and has developed a rules-based/mechanical system that uses technical parameters of the stock market. He has taught at five universities and academic institutions with a total of 63 classes as an Adjunct Professor.

Robert has created several investment models and has honed his risk management skills with a focus on investment models designed to make money in up or down markets.

Robert has three degrees in the fields of science: Bachelor's degree in Earth Science from the University of New Orleans, and a Master of Science degree and Doctorate degree in Geology & Geophysics from the Missouri University of Science & Technology, with specialties in geochemistry, geohydrology, and geophysics. Robert graduated magna cum laude in his post-graduate degrees.

Robert has a vast amount of experience in highly complex charts. He is also a master fingerstyle guitarist. The combination of his scientific and creative abilities with the stock market using technical analysis, gives him a pure analytical advantage over traditional strategies used by money managers.

Due to his success in the financial world, he became semi-retired at the age of 41 and has been providing financial guidance to his customers since year 2001. He holds the highest level of ethical standards and avoids any conflicts of interest.

He has watched the markets evolve well before the Internet with all transactions conducted over the phone through a stock broker, gathering information from newspapers, articles posted in the Wall Street Journal, and company reports with outdated charts. In the early-1980's, he remembers creating his own charts by plotting daily stock prices obtained from the newspapers.

Soon after the birth of the Internet in 1983, basic charting software gave rise to technical analysis. Since then, Robert has tested & experimented with almost every style of technical trading. He has extensively traded the market and experienced every imaginable technical and emotional situation with trading stocks.
