LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

In recent issues, we have been highlighting content from the Annual Symposium. As I noted last month, “That meeting lasts just a few days but it truly does provide months’ worth of ideas for attendees.” In this month’s issue of Technically Speaking we highlight how local Chapter meetings can also provide ideas to improve your analysis.  The Denver Chapter recently hosted a meeting on back testing and the discussion included best practices related to data. A summary of that presentation kicks off this month’s issue. In researching this topic further, I discovered the value of using data free from pre-inclusion bias. Testing by Cesar Alvarez is included in this issue to quantify that problem. As Cesar notes, “People often write about systems they have developed using the current Nasdaq 100 or S&P500 stocks and have tested back for 5 to 10 years. Looking at this table shows that one should completely ignore those results. The difference between the two results is scary. Using the current list would make one think that they had a great system but actuality it was much worse.”  Histest results are included in the article. This month’s also issue also includes some quantified data about the best time of day to trade ETFs along with some articles making a convincing bearish case for U.S. stocks. For those wondering where to turn in a bear market, the answer could be in preferred stocks as data from Global Financial Data shows in another article.  We hope you find some valuable information in this month’s magazine.  Please send any comments on Technically Speaking to editor@mta.org.

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

This month and next, we will feature information covered at the MTA Annual Symposium. This year’s event was the best to date. The quality of the speakers, attendees and collaborative partners was exceptional. Planning is now underway for the 2015 Symposium. If you would like to provide feedback to the MTA on your experience, or make suggestions for topics and speakers next year, please fill out this brief survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/HY39WYV The Symposium committee pulled together a wide array of thought leaders from the investment industry. Technically Speaking will feature summaries of some of the innovative and thought provoking presentations next month. No planning committee can control the quality of attendees. The fact that so many intelligent and personable analysts decide to attend every year is a reflection of the MTA membership. The organization attracts the best and the brightest minds in our field. Great attendees add to the educational value of the Symposium and provide networking opportunities that each member finds in their own way. Collaborative Partners provide support to the event and offer an opportunity for all attendees to check out emerging technologies, research and services available. The MTA is very excited about the organizations that sponsored the Symposium this year and the work they are doing to advance technical analysis in the broader financial industry. We’ve included educational articles from two partners in this issue. The information can be useful to users of their products or to users of other software tools.  Let us know what you’d like to see in upcoming issues of Technically Speaking at editor@mta.org.
