We open this month’s newsletter with a preview of the Annual Symposium. Larry Williams updates the idea of cycles in this article and presented insights into his latest work when he spoke in New York. Also at the Symposium, Larry’s son, Dr. Jason Williams, offered insights into the minds of winning traders. We will offer summaries of the presentations in future issues and many presentations will be online, ensuring all members can access this information even if their schedule didn’t permit them to travel to the event. We have been celebrating the 40th anniversary of the MTA with a look at its history. No review of the history of technical analysis and the MTA would be complete without a look at the work of Arthur Merrill, CMT. Hewas among the first to publish studies of various market behaviors, like seasonal tendencies in the stock market such as the end-of-month effect. In this issue of Technically Speaking we are reprinting his study of M & W patterns from a 1980 issue of the MTA Journal. Few analysts could duplicate this study today using readily available charting software. Arthur worked with a programmable calcualator, “it was designed for [the] T159 programmable calculator, and had 476 instructions,” and chart paper. Other examples of his work can be found in the Journal archives available on the MTA web site. We also include some analysis of the current market. Keene Little, CMT, combines Gann with Elliott with other techniques in his work. Jonathan Beck takes an equally innovative approach. Both rely on techniques included in the diverse Body of Knowledge of technical analysis.

Letter from the Editor

Last month, we carried the news that Julie Dahlquist, PhD, CMT, had been named as the new editor for the Journal of Technical Analysis, which is the scholarly publication of our organization. Many of us look forward to the next issue, as we always have, to learn the details of new techniques in our field and to see examples of in-depth research topics. Research articles can also be submitted to this newsletter. Generally, shorter articles will be found in the newsletter while detailed and thorough examinations of a topic are more suitable for the journal. The monthly publication schedule also allows for immediate feedback to the author from the thousands of members around the world who will see the article. Hopefully you’ll find the research being offered in Technically Speaking useful. We’ve also included member profiles in this issue, which may help newer members see that there is no single career path in the field. MTA members have varied backgrounds, and success is determined by hard work more than any other factor. We strive to provide content that is useful, readable, and varied. If you have ideas for articles you’d like to see, please let us know with an email to Sincerely, Mike Carr, CMT [post_title] => Technically Speaking, August 2011 [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => closed [ping_status] => closed [post_password] => [post_name] => technically-speaking-august-2011 [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2020-03-10 21:23:39 [post_modified_gmt] => 2020-03-11 01:23:39 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => technically_speaking [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [meta_id] => 408729 [post_id] => 47160 [meta_key] => newsletter_content_2_contributor [meta_value] => a:2:{i:0;s:5:"46111";i:1;s:5:"43131";} ) )
