Jim O'Sullivan is Chief Economist at High Frequency Economics, an independent economics research firm founded by Carl Weinberg.  He forecasts and analyzes macroeconomic developments and policy actions driving financial markets.

According to MarketWatch, he is "the best high-frequency economic forecaster in America."  He has been MarketWatch Forecaster of the Year in 10 of the 14 years since the award was created, including each of the last seven.  Ranking is based on accuracy in projecting U.S. economic indicators.  He has won the Reuters/Starmine Most Accurate Forecaster of U.S. Economic Data award each year since it has been awarded—for 2014, 2015 and 2016.

Jim began his career at J.P. Morgan, where he authored the U.S. section of Global Data Watch, the firm's flagship publication.  He has also worked at UBS and MF Global.  He was the editor and lead author of Data Decoder: An Investor's Guide to the U.S. Economy, a guidebook for tracking the U.S. economy, published in 2002.

Jim earned an M.A. in economics from Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario.  He holds a B.A. in economics from Trinity College in Dublin, where he was named a Scholar of the University (top 1%).
