            [post_content] => Although we are headquartered in the U.S., we are a global organization. The economy is recovering here as vaccinations rise and COVID infections decline. However, in contrast, our colleagues elsewhere, especially in India, continue to face major health challenges. CMT President Scott Richter offers our support in his remarks this month.

In the markets, changes are brewing as commodities are soaring, technology stocks got smacked and cryptocurrencies have become the “spring break” of tradeables. Dogecoin? Really? I suppose our role is not to judge, but to analyze trends and patterns.

What members may have noticed is the lack of chapter meetings in recent months. With the Americas Summit in April and basic Zoom fatigue from working at home and home schooling, it is no wonder everyone needed a break. But fear not, the calendar is filling up again. Check out the “Learning and Events” link on the CMT Association home page.

This month, we feature an article by Arthur Hill and a spin on trend following systems. It is elegant in its simplicity and I highly recommend reading it. And for good measure, Arthur is also this month’s member interview.

Other features include the announcement of this month’s Fill the Gap podcast with Frank Teixeira, The Mother of all Sector Rotation Strategies written by Erez Katz, membership news and TA award acknowledgements. We also say goodbye to Jim Forte, from the TSAAF in San Francisco. Also lost in recent days is the legend Welles Wilder, who created many of the studies we all use today. Some of you may have heard of him.

Good luck trading, and stay safe.

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

This month’s newsletter begins with an article that covers the past and the present. Ralph Acampora, CMT, was present at the beginning of the MTA and has been a part of every major development in the organization during the past 40 years. He looks forward to the next 40 years of the MTA and expects much to change over that time. However, he also expects some things to remain as they are. Ralph, like so many others, expects the MTA to continue to be a professional organization where ideas are freely shared. The MTA will continue advancing the profession of technical analysis on Wall Street. In addition to taking a long-term look into the future, we are also looking just a few months ahead in this issue. Although it is only January, the planning for this year’s Annual Symposium is well underway. In this month’s issue of Technically Speaking we are offering insights from two of the scheduled speakers, Perry Kaufman and John Murphy, CMT. We hope that you will be planning to attend the Symposium and to participate in your local MTA Chapter in the coming year. We also hope you will share your work through the newsletter. Submissions can be sent at any time to editor@mta.org.
