Jack Schannep is a West Point graduate and former Air Force flight instructor. He started in the finance business over 50 years ago with Dean Witter (now Morgan Stanley) and he retired as senior vice president in charge of Southern Arizona. He started the Schannep Timing Indicator & TheDowTheory.com Newsletter in 1977, originally for colleagues in the business and since 1998 on the Internet for subscribers worldwide. Mark Hulbert of the Hulbert Financial Digest wrote on MarketWatch that “in the hands of at least one of the advisers (Jack Schannep) whose performance I regularly monitor, it [the Dow Theory] is one of the best-performing market timing systems of the last decade." In addition, Hulbert said, “Schannep's interpretation of the Dow Theory did a better job of navigating the 2007-2009 bear market and subsequent bull market than any of the nearly 200 other stock market timing strategies monitored by the Hulbert Financial Digest.” Jack and his wife Helen live in Tucson and Pinetop, Arizona.
