Finding Order in Chaos

In the second year of this new pandemic normal, the world continues to seek some order in the chaos around us. The markets have gone beyond the K-shaped recovery of last year. As one of the fastest adopted technologies in modern history, crypto assets’ total market capitalization now exceeds $2T marking a 10x rise in value in less than 2 years; many crypto optimists believe total market capitalization will hit $30T in the next 5 years. While US Equities are at all-time highs, global inflation continues to move in a low sideways band. Central bank monetary policy has been dovish for the better part of the past decade, but we are starting to see the language change.

As asset allocation becomes increasingly more complex, investors, allocators and traders have an opportunity to learn from practitioners who have made the transition into new asset classes.

It is time to explore these changing trends more closely.

The inaugural Asia Pacific Summit, presented by CMT Association, brings together top global and regional practitioners from both buy and sellside communities. Over two knowledge-packed days, attendees will learn from a mix of unique perspectives on major themes and innovative technical techniques.

Hedge fund manager and renowned systematic investing publisher Andreas Clenow will be joined by several of the most esteemed rules based discretionary analysts, including Asia’s No.1 Rated Technical Strategist, Lawrence Balanco, CMT, and prolific technical investor and educator Francis Hunt. Discover new insights on the intersection between market psychology and big data from experts such as Katsunari Yamaguchi, PhD, CFA, CMA, Katsuhiko Okada, PhD, and Aman Oberoi, and hear how the next generation of hedge fund managers integrates new information to invest in cryptocurrency markets.

Over this 2-day Summit, enjoy 12 unique and enlightening sessions hosted by CMT volunteers from Australia to Japan, ASEAN to Hong Kong and Greater China, India to the middle East, and everything in between.
