Letter from the Editor

This is the second issue where we provide a brief summary of a presentation available for viewing in the MTA video archives. Watching the speakers from years ago may seem like a nostalgic divergence from the current markets. Nothing could be further from the reality that these videos are an invaluable learning tool for novice and experienced technicians. The MTA has always served more as a breeding ground of ideas instead of a ‘stock tout club.’ In conversations with early members of the MTA, that is frequently mentioned as one of their goals. They wanted to have meetings where the ideas discussed would withstand the test of time. They felt there were plenty of opportunities to gather and exchange tips. The MTA was designed to be different. The video archives meet this goal in a way that the founding members never dreamed of as a possibility. Of course the technology that makes this possible was not known when the first meetings were held. At that time, New York City was the center of the organization, and the only place to have access to the expert presentations that have long been the standard of the New York meetings. I would guess the regional chapters and worldwide growth of the organization were never envisioned in their original discussions.  With the video archives, and other valuable services available through the MTA web site, you can benefit from membership without ever being in New York. We hope you find Technically Speaking to be one of the benefits of membership.

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.
