            [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.

Michael Kahn, CMT
