Doug McKay

Doug McKay has been assisting clients in managing their portfolio in the capacity as a Registered Investment Advisor (series 65) since 1994 and as a series 3 licensed commodity broker since 2007. Originally from Chicago, he obtained his B.A. in business from Arizona State University. A passion for the ocean led Doug to San Diego. Doug is a strict technical analyst which guides his philosophy on trading: “I’m always looking at the markets with a fresh perspective – this means no ‘buy & hold’ mentality, no piling money into mutual funds, and especially no herd mentality. This is a game of probabilities – cut your losses quickly and let your profits flow.” Doug’s goal is to educate his clients in technical analysis and the emotional aspects of managing their own money so they can realize more success in trading and investing.
