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.
