Elli Gifford

Elli Gifford first became known as a technical analyst when she worked at Investment Research in Cambridge in the mid 1960s. From the late 1970s until 1986 she specialised in the commodity and futures markets, initially at Eurocommodities then at Rudolf Wolff, where she rose to be the Director of Research, responsible for both the technical and fundamental teams. In 1986 she returned to the newly incorporated Investment Research of Cambridge Limited and remained there until 2000.
In the 1986 change from ACTA to STA, Elli was one of the leaders. She was a regular speaker at meetings, as well as at other conferences and seminars, and an active teacher of technical analysis. She was also involved in the early days of the International Federation of Technical Analysts (IFTA).
Elli wrote two books on technical analysis, ‘Money Making Matters’ and ‘The Investor’s Guide to Technical Analysis’. She died in April 2004.
