Gene Inger began investing at 13 years old, which led to his early career at a major Wall Street firm. He managed portfolios and anchored at KWHY-TV Los Angeles, the nation's first financial television program, calling major market moves. Mr. Inger began the long-running Inger Letter and developed his own station in New York/New Jersey that featured Wall Street and market programming. His West & East Coast Stock Market Today shows became FNN affiliates and merged into the CNBC Network. (Mr. Inger was an original CNBC Market Maven.) Now retired from portfolio management, Mr. Inger publishes his popular Daily Briefing commentary nightly. He updates its companion MarketCast several times daily, with a focus on intraday patterns for S&P stock index futures, as well as other major indexes, such as oil, the dollar, silver and gold, plus Treasuries and commodities.
