Traders around the world are reacting to what they think the Federal Reserve might do in the coming months. Fed officials have repeatedly tried to calm the markets by explaining they have no firm plans for managing the end of their latest Quantitative Easing initiative. For some reason, traders seem to be nervous about assurances. No one really seems to know what will happen next. In this month’s newsletter, we have the insights of technicians from around the world. We are able to feature assessments of markets in the U.S., Canada, and the Philippines. We also have several charts showing the recent activity in India. Hopefully in the future we can provide analysis of markets in other countries. There are now MTA Members in 85 countries. We have no way of knowing where the next global hot spot will be but we can be fairly certain an MTA member will be providing analysis on that market. If you prepare reports on some of the less widely covered markets, or on the more popular markets, please consider them sharing them with the MTA through Technically Speaking.

From the Editor’s Desk

In recent issues I have repeatedly asked for input from the membership, and this month you see that the response has been very positive. On the cover, we present a rather detailed piece by Joe Russo in which he analyzes several world markets. For many, the most interesting part of this article will be his comparison of arithmetic versus logarithmic scaling on charts. Joe raises several interesting points, and supports his ideas with examples. It’s exactly the kind of work that needs to be done in technical analysis. For reasons I have never understood, chart scaling can become an emotional topic among technicians. Joe simply presents facts with charts, the essence of technical analysis at it’s finest. Kim Husebye, CFA, CMT, also combines facts and charts in a shorter piece, fully exploring the Kondratieff Wave, an interesting theory familiar to most technicians. Kim’s short analysis should lead to some tradable insights with only a little thought. After entering a trade based upon your interpretations of one of those articles, Matthew Caruso presents some thoughts on when to exit a trade. His work also combines well-written theory with charts illustrating his ideas. Finally, from the membership, we received a book review from Scott Richter, CFA, CMT. There is also a lot happening within the MTA, and that is covered in this month’s newsletter. I hope that you’ll enjoying reading Technically Speaking, and we all hope that you will enjoy the upcoming holiday season.
