Marshall Swing was born Richard Marshall Swing in upstate New York to parents from North Carolina. They soon moved back to North Carolina and he grew up in the towns of Asheboro, Thomasville, and High Point.
As a young man, Marshall loved architecture and engineering, like his father, and came to love music, like his mother. Music won the desire of his heart and he took up trombone and excelled at it winning various awards and solo contests, entering into study music at East Carolina University and excelling there.
Along the way, Marshall also took up piano, bass guitar, and singing as both hobbies and a means of earning money for room and board and anything else one need to survive in college and grad school.
After graduate school, he moved to the North East and played piano bars and night clubs, solo and with his own small club jazz group. The night life took its toll on social life and friends and it was time for a new route in life so he entered the U.S. Air Force in hopes of being a pilot. Pilot training did not work out so he turned his focus to engineering and later computer programming.
After the Air Force, he entered civilian life as a consultant programmer and later worked for a large company as a database administrator.
Along the way, Marshall wrote many songs but other than performing in a church from time to time or serving as choir director he did not know what professional outlet his music might take but many songs was written.
In the late 1990s, Marshall became very interested in self investing and learned techniques for picking stocks and trading mutual funds. Later, about 2006, Marshall became interested, through his father, in uranium investing and that led to getting acquainted with the precious metals of silver and gold. He studied the case for silver and gold from the best minds in commodities investing reading everything they wrote and more. Once the economy looked as if it would crash in 2008, Marshall became convinced precious metals were a safe haven to protect capital and YHVH God had created them, not paper money.
About that time, Marshall started studying the Commitment of Traders (COT) weekly summary data on silver and gold futures and options trading. That led to inputting the data in a database and studying that data with the knowledge and tools he had learned while working for a Fortune 500 company. He began to see trends in the data that no other analyst in the world seemed to be noticing and started writing a weekly COT analysis article for www.SilverDoctors.com in early 2012, after having privately written articles/posts on private and public investing forums for several years. Without hesitation, Marshall shared his analysis that silver and gold were going to be crashed by the Commercial banks and “powers that be” in the near future and sure enough the metals, against all other analyst’s opinions continued to deteriorate slowly.
In November, 2014, SilverDoctors published an article memorializing Marshall’s predictions:
In September, 2015, Marshall record his first album of songs “YOU” due to be released in July 2015 and another set of songs is in the works to be recorded.
In the Spring of 2014, Marshall made the prediction of how silver and gold would ultimately crash in about September 2015 and then rebound exponentially creating massive wealth for its physical holders.
In the Spring of 2014, Marshall made the bold statement/prediction that September 23, 2015 is the start date of Daniel’s 70th Week, a prophetic event marking the judgment of the world and the event all the knowledgeable world has been waiting for, for about 2,500+ years, even waiting for the prophecies of Moses in Deuteronomy to come to pass as those foretold the reasons and the basis for Daniel’s prophecy of 70 Weeks.
Many famous bible prophecy writers are making horrific statements of a financial crash in 2015 related to the Shemitah seven year Sabbath of the “ground” but to date, only Marshall Swing is boldly telling the world the blood moons and the Day of Atonement 2015 mark the start of Daniel’s 70th Week, the fulfillment of the judgments we read in the book of Revelation.
Marshall lives happily with his wife, Ariene, in a small town in what he calls the Wilderness of Southern Illinois.
