About Jim Patterson
Jim Patterson began his career in the investment business as
a retail account executive with Dean Witter Reynolds in
early 1990. After completing a three-month training program,
which included a month in New York working at the World
Trade Center, he began building his retail business. It
started slowly, but after 18 months Jim earned the
status of Vice President of Investments and a nice window
office. However, after about two years of servicing clients
it became clear the atmosphere and culture of a large wire
house was not for Jim
In 1992 Jim moved from Dean Witter to Robinson-Humphrey, a
smaller regional firm. At the smaller firm Jim was able to
provide a better level of service to his existing clients.
At Robinson-Humphrey, it was not long before he was winning
growth and goal contests.
The relationship with Robinson-Humphrey was a good one and
lasted until 1997. In 1997 Jim realized the bulk of his
client base was more interested in his research and his
market opinion than his firm's opinion. Jim left Robinson-
Humphrey and started his own company, Patterson Capital,
One day in 1998 one of his clients called up and queried,
"What should I do in my E-trade account?" It was this phone
call that prompted the idea of offering his opinion and
trading ideas as an independent research service to the
growing "do it yourself" sector.
In July 1999 Jim launched his first advisory service, Reggie
on Wall Street. In 2001 the name was changed to Tactical
Trading Outlook. Also in 2001 Jim hosted his own radio talk
show called Tactical Trading and Investing.
In late 2001 Jim developed the "Type 3 Tactical Trading
System" in cooperation with 21st Century Investor Publishing and Phil
Jim lives in Atlanta, Georgia with his wife of 8 years, his two
young daughters, and two dogs. When he is not working or
playing with his girls he keeps active. He enjoys swimming,
biking and running, and competes in one or two triathlons
