Who I Am

My name is Peter Ghostine, the founder of 61point8, LLC. I am an entrepreneur, an engineer, a patent holder, and a former professional in the field of Information Technology. I co-founded two successful companies in the last two decades, both of which were acquired in recent years. As a business-minded professional, my sole focus has always been on maximizing the bottom line of the business by delivering incredible value and excellence to customers. 


I graduated from Syracuse University in 1989 with B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering.

Trading Background

I began trading stocks part time in 1996. Four years later, my business venture demanded that I give it my full attention. It wasn't until the summer of 2009 that I took a hiatus from the world of technology to resume my passion for trading stocks. This decision was especially motivated by a dismal portfolio performance suffered at the hands of incompetent money managers during one of the most exhilarating bull markets in recent memory. 


Let’s face it: trading is often too confusing and frustrating, and it’s certainly not for the faint of heart. For this reason, I decided to embark on the daunting task of creating this new and exciting website called  The purpose of this venture is to foster a network of intelligent, goal-oriented traders who, like me, wish to take matters into their own hands.

The road to trading success is often paved with failure. My main subscription-based service offering, TradeWinds, vehemently promotes a focused and self-disciplined trading methodology that aims to maximize profit and minimize risk. TradeWinds subscribers get the benefit of exclusive, real-time access to my detailed weekly market analysis, morning updates, and steady stream of trade setups via the website and my private Twitter account: @61point8. To find out if a TradeWinds subscription would be beneficial to you, please visit the Subscribe page. 


Dubbed HITS (High-Integrity Trade Signals), my methodology relies on best-in-class tools in order to identify high-probability trade setups on both the long and short sides of the market. This methodology is universal in its applicability to any market and time frame. I'm such a believer in my approach to the stock market that I've recently embarked on a new project aiming to implement HITS as a Cloud-based Trade Opportunity Search Engine. TradeWinds subscribers will receive the benefit of exclusive access to this platform upon its scheduled release in early 2015. To learn more about HITS, please visit the Methodology page.  

It’s my hope that you’ll find this information useful and that you’ll choose to join our trader community of emotion-free, self-directed wealth-builders.

Trade smart and good luck,

Peter Ghostine
