Roger Khoury is an expert in the field of Market Forecasting, with over two decades of experience.

In 2010, he developed an innovative probability-based form of price forecasting, called Market Vulnerability Analysis™ (or MVA™), to overcome an inherent flaw he had discovered in most trading systems and strategies, which is the root cause of large drawdowns and inconsistent results. 

This form of analysis enables its user to uniquely reduce the downside risks in the market, without sacrificing the upside performance potential.

After successfully deploying his proprietary analysis and forecasting methodology to reach his own goals, people began to inquire about his accomplishments.

In 2011, Roger brought on partners, Bo Yoder and Dr. Jared Goldstine to help establish a training curriculum and mentoring program, in order to address those interests, which they offered through their firm RBJ Financial Group.

Based on the success of this venture and the insights gained from mentoring dozens of students, Roger was inspired to create an exclusive community, with a more formalized learning environment.

In 2019 Roger launched the Market Forecasting Academy to accomplish his vision for educating and mentoring active market participants on acquiring the skill of accurate and objective Financial Market Forecasting.
