Hamzei Analytics, a leading provider of analytical market data and proprietary market sentiment indicators to institutional and professional traders, has joined forces with the esteemed hedge fund manager Ike Iossif, President and Chief Investment Officer of Aegean Capital Group, Inc. Beginning in November, Mr. Iossif will be partnering with Hamzei Analytics as the new Options Strategist and Editor of the popular HOTS newsletter.

The new HOTS format will include 4 option trades along with a description of the rationale behind the trade so subscribers can understand the analysis supporting the recommendation. As an added bonus, a hedged trade from Ike's coveted LONG / SHORT Portfolio will also be provided. The approach utilizes a combination of fundamental and technical analysis to discover some of the potentially huge opportunities that exist in the markets today. These trades will focus on hi-beta positions geared towards home run returns. The newsletter will be published twice a month, every other Monday evening, with a brief weekly position update as the need arises.

At Hamzei Analytics, our investment selections are tailored mainly for trading activity - which means strategic buying and selling on a fairly frequent basis to compound consistent gains over time. Most of the choices featured in the newsletter will represent a high reward/ high risk scenario. Therefore, we suggest using only high-risk capital for any of these trades. Above market returns CAN be achieved with a high reward/high risk approach through proper risk management and disciplined trading that are essential to capital conservation and consistent portfolio growth over time.

It is this approach that guides Ike Iossif in achieving consistently superior investment results for the clients of his firm.

Timer Digest recognized the success of Ike Iossif’s investment strategies by ranking him among the Top 10 Market Timers for the 2001 calendar year. Ike approaches "market timing" from two different angles. The first angle is the widely-accepted practice of identifying points at which a trend change takes place. The second angle involves quantifying market risk through the quality of the trend. He believes that simply identifying the potential of a change in trend accomplishes only half of the goal. In his view, rational investors ought to be concerned not only with the direction of trend but also with the quality of the trend. It is the "quality" of the trend that is a direct reflection of market risk.
