Letter from the Editor

In Technically Speaking we try to bring you money making ideas and news that impacts the field of technical analysis each month. This month, both are combined into the most difficult article I have ever had to write. Mike Epstein passed away in April. To those who knew him, his death is an enormous loss since Mike’s outsized personality always left you feeling optimistic after discussing the markets or life with the philosopher-trader. In the brief article we include in this newsletter, we attempt to provide a picture of his life. We also attempt to offer a glimpse into the wisdom he shared from his lifetime of experience. Mike knew how to trade, and he traded for a living and for enjoyment. Whenever he spoke, there was an opportunity to learn. Older traders and analysts offer that opportunity. And the MTA facilitates those meetings. It is an incredible organization from that respect – no where else do I see experienced members, some of whom are highly seasoned citizens, so willing to share their knowledge. For those on the fence, go to the May Symposium in New York. Approach a more experienced member and introduce yourself. Odds are that it’ll be a winning trade – you’ll learn a great deal and enjoy the experience. Personally, my results from meeting older traders is better than my results from trading. Never a loser in the former, and several years of enjoyable conversations with Mike Epstein that I will always value.  While we try to summarize Mike’s impact in this month’s e-newsletter, it can never replace an hour of his time. Take advantage of one the most important MTA benefits and reach out to our more experienced members. I hope to meet many of you at the Symposium, and I hope I have a difficult time breaking through the throng of younger members discussing markets and life with our wealth of knowledge.
