Peter was a  regular panelist on ABC Network’s weekly Sunday show, Business World, and has made frequent guest appearances on FNN, CNBC, Wall Street Week, Larry King Live, and Nightly Business Report. He has been featured in some of the nation’s most prestigious publications including Barron’s, The Wall Street Journal, and Forbes among others, and a cover story in Futures Magazine.


In recent years, Eliades has directed his attention to his management program along with the development of trading systems, but he has remained deeply involved with studying and developing technical indicators for analyzing the stock market.

Peter's Bio:

Born in Lowell, Massachusetts

Lowell High School

Harvard College

Boston University Law School, J.D.  (Former member- Massachusetts Bar)

Married to Marie (Iverson) Eliades with 3 children, Lia (25), George (23), and Alexander (21)


Upon graduating from Boston University Law School and passing the Massachusetts Bar, Peter Eliades moved to New York City where he entertained as a performer/singer and pianist in Manhattan cabarets and off-Broadway musical comedy.  In 1967, he moved to Los Angeles and continued his musical career. In 1968, with a lot of time and curiosity and a little money, Peter initiated his stock market studies.


In 1972, he began his financial career as a stock broker. Peter never enjoyed sales, but he was promised he could make daily TV appearances and give market commentary if he became a broker. This appealed both to his “show-biz” side and his new-found love of market analysis, so he accepted the offer, and appeared as a stock market analyst on Los Angeles television station KWHY, the nation’s first financial TV station, for several years beginning in 1973.  Several times in the fall of 1974, in a market that had seen the average share of stock drop for almost 6 years since December 1968, he predicted on KWHY that a major market bottom would occur during the week of December 9-13, 1974. The exact Dow intra-day low of 570.01 occurred on December 9, 1974. As a result of that spectacular and well noted forecast, publication of Stockmarket Cycles began in July of 1975.


 In 1985, the first year he was rated by the independent rating services, Mr. Eliades earned Timer Digest’s “Timer of the Year” award and placed second in 1986 in a close race which wasn’t decided until the final trading day of the year. In 1989, Mark Hulbert (Hulbert Financial Digest) named Mr. Eliades as the “Most Consistent Mutual Fund Switcher” based on Eliades timing signals for the years 1985, 1986, 1987, and 1988. From January 1985 when Hulbert first started rating Stockmarket Cycles, through August 1990, Stockmarket Cycles had the #1 market timing record in the country with a timing gain of 174.3% versus a comparable gain in the Wilshire 5000 Total Return Index of 119%. Peter repeated that winning performance once again from June 1986 through June 1996. Over that 10 year period, Stockmarket Cycles’ Fidelity Select mutual fund portfolio was the winner by a very substantial margin over all the other rated mutual fund  portfolios in the country. The September 1996 AAII Journal (American Association of Individual Investors) published a rating of the performance of  27 mutual fund portfolios from the country’s best known newsletter writers from June 1986 through June 1996. The average annual gain of the other 26 portfolios was 9.13%. Stockmarket Cycles’ Fidelity Select Portfolio showed an annualized gain of 16.50%. The nearest competitor was at 12.49%.


The performance record just cited was accomplished during a mostly very bullish market background. What really distinguishes Eliades record, however, has been his performance in two deadly bear markets.


 During the 2000-2003 bear market, Stockmarket Cycles performance was again #1 as tabulated by Hulbert with an annualized gain of 13.9% in the face of an S&P 500 loss of 43.4% from March 31, 2000-March 31, 2003. The tables below catalogue the remarkable record established in the two great bear markets of the past 15 years. Data are from the Hulbert Financial Digest.
