Webcast: “Equity Investing with Relative Momentum” with Nick Radge
Aug 22 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Momentum is a logical, time tested approach supported by vast amounts of academic and industry research gathered over many decades. Stocks that have done well recently tend to continue doing well in the following months and even years. This is known as ‘price persistence’ and can be found in individual stocks, commodities, foreign exchange and indices. This unique style of investing allows investors to build wealth, navigate changing markets, avoid sustained bearish periods and meet lifelong investment goals. In this discussion, Nick Radge will walk through an aggressive momentum strategy that he personally uses.

TOPIC
Identifying Stocks To Buy Using A Top/Down Technical Approach
JC will walk you through his weight-of-the-evidence approach to stock picking. We will first go over International Indexes and the major U.S. Averages before diving into individual sectors where we will be analyzing momentum, relative strength and breadth characteristics. Once we identify a specific sector and/or industry group, we will look for individual equities within those groups which display the most asymmetrical risk vs reward opportunities.

This will be a fun and interactive session designed for Investors with both short-term and longer-term time horizons, Financial Advisors, Hedge Funds, Family Offices and Financial Media.
