About us

Paul Wise BCom

Paul Wise is the Founder, Director, and chief market analyst of Options21 and Momentum Investing. After 20 years of working in the finance industry as Market Analyst, Market dealer, Educator and Financial Advisor, his understanding of the global market is second to none, and he is keen to share his knowledge and skills as a financial market educator!

Paul’s working career started on a different, more nature bound track, until the recession of the early 90’s gave him the final push to return to university and complete a Bachelor of Commerce, with majors in business management and marketing. From there life took him into the finance industry as a registered representative of the Sydney Futures Exchange, then onwards to his own broking firm. From here it didn’t take long to discover his passion for teaching and changed direction towards financial market educator. The most recent addition to his qualifications is his accreditation as Certified Market Technician by the “Market Technician Association” (New York, USA).

Paul’s approach to market analysis stands out – there is no question about it!  He doesn’t limit himself to just technical or just quantitative analysis. He has a foot in each camp and his hands on the market pulse, combines this with his extensive experience and smart software, and that makes him the perfect coach to help an average investor or SMSF manager develop a winning strategic investment plan, or implement complex trading strategies using derivative products!

Paul is based in Perth, Western Australia and should his computer be sitting idle, you will either find him tending to his garden, having a cooking competition with his family, or out on the water as race officer with the junior sailors of the local yacht club.
