Christopher Aaron began his career as an intelligence analyst for the CIA and Department of Defense. He served two tours to Afghanistan and Iraq between 2006 - 2009, conducting pattern-of-life mapping for military leaders.



Mapping shares similarities with technical analysis of the financial markets because both involve the interpretation of repeating patterns found in human nature. He is the founder of iGold Advisor, providing research on the precious metals, and iGlobal Analytics, featuring technical analysis of the global capital markets.



Christopher speaks regularly on the cyclical patterns found within the financial markets and on international policy. He has been featured in the New York Times and NPR news amongst other publications.

Gold’s bottoming attempt following the 2015 low of $1,045 per ounce has failed to maintain a price structure indicative of a rising trend. Consequently, the odds have now shifted significantly that precious metals will not be in a bull market for the foreseeable fut
Gold is in a primary recovery pattern as it attempts to break above its 2016 peak of $1,378 per ounce. This recovery pattern appears over and over again throughout history – the success or failure of gold to maintain the structure of this pattern will pave the way f
