From the Editor’s Desk

As always, the MTA is busy. Staff and volunteers are continuing with preparations for the upcoming Seminar. Graders are preparing to review the growing number of CMT tests. Daily operations continue to increase at an ever quickening pace. This issue of the newsletter reflects that activity and presents some interesting research on techniques of technical analysis. On the cover, Rob Brand, CMT, takes a new look at volume and analyzes institutional fund flows. He concludes that studying this data is useful, and provides a viable framework to incorporate the data into your own market studies. Looking inside the newsletter, on page 8, we publish a short study by Lawson McWhorter, CMT, looking at the volume generated by retail investors. He uses data recently made available by the New York Stock Exchange that was announced in the June Issue of Technically Speaking. His conclusion is that the usefulness of retail data in the current market environment is limited. I hope you’ll read both studies, and maybe consider doing your own work in this area. We are always happy to publish the results of your studies. I hope you enjoy this issue, and look forward to hearing about what you’d like to see in upcoming issues.
