Callum Newman originally studied Communications (Journalism) before deciding financial markets were far more fascinating than anything Marshall McLuhan ever came up with.
Ever since he’s been studying to discover why currencies, commodities and stocks move like they do.
In 2014 he launched Cycles, Trends and Forecasts with Phillip J. Anderson under Port Phillip Publishing. In 2015 he tapped his network of contacts to create The Newman Show Podcast, which become the Number One financial podcast on iTunes in the States.
He also launched PPP’s hugely popular daily Money Morning Trader service, profiling the hottest stocks on the ASX each trading day. Over this 18-month period he regularly pinpointed certain stocks that later moved in large percentage gains for his subscribers.
