            [post_content] => The same old news seems to hang over the markets like a low level cow emission of uncertainty. Brexit – will it be hard or soft? China – will there be a trade deal or not? North Korea – nukes or no nukes? The Fed – quantitative tightening or not? Politics – not going there.

The new news was the Green New Deal, spearheaded by the freshman representative from New York. This supposed economic stimulus and equality plan was widely criticized for its disruptive goals and impossibly fast timeline. We’ll leave the debating to the debaters and concentrate on what that means for us and our investing clients. Basically, it means some industries will get a boost and others will get a drag, if not elimination.

Do we, or should we, really care about legislation that probably will not become law? The answer is yes, but for a reason any technical analyst should appreciate. There is already a trend in place towards a greener economy. Fully powered by the free market, we already see electric vehicles, high efficiency heating and cooling in buildings, natural gas heating oil and coal, renewable gas technology improving, solar and wind power costs coming down, and so on and so on. Green is coming, with or without a push from Washington. It’s what the people demand. They just don’t want to go cold turkey with no gas-powered pickup trucks, forced veganism and tripled electricity costs.

This month, we’re getting ready for the 46th Annual Symposium, scheduled for April 4-5 in New York. There is still time to register.

We also continue with our member interview series, this month featuring Mark Arbeter, CMT. In addition to this, we're carrying on the interview theme with a revisit to a presentation I did for the CMT Association last year called “Writing for the Media,” which teaches a few things about doing it right. And Lance Roberts offers some tips on being a good interview subject for TV or radio.

Minnesota and Chicago chapters sent in reviews of recent meetings and Tom Bruni, CMT and our own Tyler Wood reviewed the recent Chart Summit weekend in Colorado.

Of course, there is association news, including reason to show off your CMT designation. Be a CMT, loud and proud!

As always, the MTA Annual Symposium was a success in every sense of the word.  The presenters are chosen for their ability to deliver valuable and actionable ideas. Networking opportunities provide a chance to meet with old colleagues and make new contacts. In the past few years, the location has provided out-of-town visitors with expansive views of New York City, allowing for limited sightseeing while maintaining a busy schedule. In the next few months, videos of many of the presentations will be added to the MTA web site and summaries of the presentations will be presented here. While the presentations are the core of the Symposium, equally valuable are the vendor exhibits. Many of us turn to the same tools every day. We know there have been new products introduced since we selected our software but we also know that is difficult to keep up with new products and even more difficult to assess the capabilities from a description on a web site. The Symposium always brings together a small group of product partners that understand they will be facing a demanding audience.   If you were unable to make it to New York to see what’s new in the industry, you should still consider contacting the service providers that took time to learn how their product meets the needs of the MTA’s members. Several of the Symposium sponsors have agreed to extend special offers to all members for a limited time. More details are provided in this issue and contact information for all sponsors is also provided. Please give us any feedback on vendors and let us know what you would like to see in upcoming issues of Technically Speaking by emailing us at Michael Carr [post_title] => Technically Speaking, May 2013 [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => closed [ping_status] => closed [post_password] => [post_name] => technically-speaking-may-2013 [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2020-08-03 11:34:32 [post_modified_gmt] => 2020-08-03 15:34:32 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => technically_speaking [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [meta_id] => 392802 [post_id] => 46036 [meta_key] => newsletter_content_5_contributor [meta_value] => a:2:{i:0;s:5:"24804";i:1;s:5:"43131";} ) )
