A biography at says George Lane had “an extensive academic background,” having attended Drake University, Washington and Lee University,
Northwestern University, The Academy, The Citadel, William and Mary, and The New School.


Lane began his 50-year career in the financial markets with the E.F. Hutton & Co. brokerage in the 1950s. His broker’s training included time spent under the tutelage of Joseph Granville. Later, George Lane joined the research group at Investment Educators, the firm he would eventually own.


A March 2007 article quoted George Lane’s description of his famous indicator: “Stochastics measures the momentum of price. If you visualize a rocket going up in the air — before it can turn down, it must slow down. Momentum always changes direction before price.” [Brecht, Kira [|Stocks, Futures and Options Magazine] , March, 2007, retrieved on Nov. 23, 2007.]
