Letter from the Editor

In this month’s issue of Technically Speaking, we offer several short articles that could stimulate some fresh thoughts on the markets. John R. McGinley, CMT, offers details on a reliable January indicator. What is interesting about his work is that he includes a test of statistical significance, a step lacking in most articles written about technical indicators. We are also reprinting a very readable explanation of the chi squared test written John’s friend and mentor, the late Arthur Merrill, CMT. We follow this with some very specific trading lessons. Mike Moody, CMT, quantifies how much following a disciplined approach can be worth in “The $ Value of Patience.” Ken Winans, CMT, contributes an article which shows that simple strategies can work very well. David Penn of also explains a specific trading strategy. Bob Palmerton, CMT, provides details on a disciplined way to look at the markets each day. Finally, we have some reviews of trading tools developed by MTA members. We are always happy to bring your work to the attention of others. Books can be reviewed as Adobe files so that the article can be published at the time the book is being formally released. Please email us at to arrange for a review, or to contribute an article that will be read by thousands of MTA members and affiliates around the world.
