About Us

Franck Avril, Owner/Trainer at Trend-Vantage Trading System, is one of those individuals who is blessed with an agile and complex mind. Born in Paris, France of two French parents (one a scientist and the other an artist); he now resides in San Francisco after a life that has so far encompassed successful careers in music performance, education, arts administration, and photography.

Franck AvrilIn 2010, Franck was drawn to Options trading and became introduced first to Brian Benson’s wonderful insights and trading style, and subsequently to Jeff Augen’s important studies of the Market and to Jeff’s and Karson Keith’s work on their then-beta trend indicators (now beautifully developed and extremely powerful).

It is at that point in time that Franck decided to curtail his varying free-lance activities in both Music and Photography and dedicate himself to the Market, to see if there were a way to integrate his knowledge and visual skills to its various trends and swings (both intraday and longer). The result is Trend-Vantage.com, an integrated system of trend indicators, which (after much developing and testing) consistently and reliably track the directions and strengths of trends in today’s Market, on anything that’s tradable.

It should come as no surprise that while new to Franck’s development, his work with trend indicators already bears the same characteristics that reflect his approach to any other field: his dedication to excellence, to substance and consistency; a commitment to ethics and to one’s own self-discipline (he has been a student of both Aikido and Iado, in addition to music); an attentiveness to detail along with a healthy commitment to succeed; a desire to assist and interact with others; and a winning passion to pass onto other people what he himself has gained as both knowledge and first-hand experience.

His background in teaching and in connecting with people from different walks of life has resulted in a personal one-on-one coaching style that offers quick insights into his trading method, while remaining flexible to an individual’s needs and learning curve.

We hope that you will become a part of our growing community, and look forward to working with you to find the best fit for your trading needs.
