            [post_content] => There are many songs about the end of summer, most talking about getting back to work or school, essentially ending the lazy, carefree days. If that’s you, perhaps you forgot this is 2020! Up is down, Zoom is the word and Wednesday is Sunday (at Carvel). People cannot wait for fall, hoping that things will get better on the virus, economic and back-to-school fronts.

However, after several months of really good stock market action, September gave also us that rude awakening that stocks can actually go down, and by a lot, in any given day. Even worse, crude oil, after sitting there for months, looks terrible again. And the greenback, after hitting a multi-year low, looks kind of “bottomy.” Is that it for gold?

Never let it be said that the markets – all of them – are boring.

Now that we are all supposed to be back at work, whether virtual or in person, it is time to get back to our plans. Of course, not the same old plans, but plans to move forward, nonetheless. As you will see, content here is a bit beefier now than it was over the summer. And the Association is getting back to long-range planning and getting CMT testing back into gear. This month, we also announce the 2021 Charles H. Dow Award, with updated submission requirements.

Also in this edition, we have Rui Matos’ article on seasonality in the commodities markets, and how to hedge/profit using options. Alon Horesh shares his thoughts on Machine Learning with regard to finding support and resistance levels. And this month’s member interview is with Vincent Randazzo, CMT, from Lowry Research.

From the Association, we’ve got membership news, and an announcement for remote proctoring in the CMT exams. The Washington DC/Baltimore had a virtual meeting in July and offered a few notes about their guest speaker.

There you go. Keep your fingers crossed that we are on the road to normalcy.

            [post_content] => The summer doldrums are upon us but given the slowdown in economic activity, it is hard to tell the difference. The pandemic remains topic one, while politics is creeping higher up the list. How will stocks do if Red wins? Or if Blue wins? Or if the rapper is actually serious?

As technical analysts, fortunately we don’t have to worry too much about all that. The market will sniff it out for us and it will be our job to read the signals it provides.

How have you all been coping with the socially distanced, everybody has cooties, world? We’d like to know so send in a few notes to us here at editor@cmtassociation.com. What are your clients doing differently? What are their views? Are you working from home? How has your business changed? And what can the Association do to help you?

Our President, Scott Richter, offers up some resources in his note within. However, due to last minute editing issues, we are without a feature article this month. Perhaps you, dear member, would like to submit something? As long as it is not a sales pitch or a black box, we’d love to read about an analysis or technique you use.

Have you read a good book on trading or analysis? Why not send in a quick half-page review?

What about software? Are you using something that is really helpful or unique? Tell us about it.

Otherwise, we’ve got Association news inside here, reviews of the June NY, Northern Ohio and India virtual chapter meetings and our member interview with Robert Peirce. Bob is retired now after a long career but still offers up his excellent long-term analysis to various chat rooms. We also have an exciting update on some new additions to our Academic Partner Program.

Don’t let the new world order get you down! And don’t let that be an excuse not to participate in your Association.
