TOPIC I
Neoclassical Technical Analysis – The Neoclassical Technical Analysis (“Neo TA”) is a unified model to measure the markets intentions and to invest in high probability breakouts and retraces. Neo TA answers the primary investor questions regarding trend, trend reversals and key price levels. The model favors simplicity over complexity and keeps you focused on what is important and ignores all the rest.
Christoph Ritschard

TOPIC II
Bitcoin – A non technical explanation of how it works, the difference between and public and private blockchain, and the reasons to be bullish on bitcoin.
Didier Borel

TOPIC III
Marks expertise is primarily in using advanced methods of technical analysis to identify stocks, commodities, and currencies with above-average risk/reward characteristics that can maximize returns and minimize risk. In addition to employing standard technical tools to identify trend duration, relative strength, and momentum, Mr. Newton utilizes counter-trend analysis to identify potential trend exhaustion and reversals of trend. He appears frequently on CNBC’s The Closing Bell, BNN, FOX Business News, along with Yahoo Finance. Mark will share his outlook on the markets with us.
