LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

The MTA Educational Foundation (MTAEF) will be cosponsoring an event marking the 160th anniversary of the birth of Charles Dow. On November 3, there will be a celebration at the Museum of American Finance. You can learn more at http://go.mta.org/117 Among the speakers will be Robert W. Colby, CMT. We have included an article he wrote several years ago about Dow Theory in this month’s newsletter. It is the first of several articles we are offering on the revered technical tool in this month’s Technically Speaking. Paul Shread, CMT, offers a more detailed look at several aspects of the Theory. We are also offering highlights of a presentation that Ralph Acampora, CMT, made in May 2009 on the Dow Theory. Ralph will be the Master of Ceremonies at the event. We are continuing our efforts to provide members and affiliates with more information about ethics, not because that is a problem area within our organization but because it is what helps define us as professionals. Like the Dow Theory, the MTA’s Code of Ethics has also proven to be timeless. We would appreciate any suggestions you have on topics to cover in upcoming Ethics Corner articles. Please send them to editor@mta.org.

Letter from the Editor

In Technically Speaking we try to bring you money making ideas and news that impacts the field of technical analysis each month. This month, both are combined into the most difficult article I have ever had to write. Mike Epstein passed away in April. To those who knew him, his death is an enormous loss since Mike’s outsized personality always left you feeling optimistic after discussing the markets or life with the philosopher-trader. In the brief article we include in this newsletter, we attempt to provide a picture of his life. We also attempt to offer a glimpse into the wisdom he shared from his lifetime of experience. Mike knew how to trade, and he traded for a living and for enjoyment. Whenever he spoke, there was an opportunity to learn. Older traders and analysts offer that opportunity. And the MTA facilitates those meetings. It is an incredible organization from that respect – no where else do I see experienced members, some of whom are highly seasoned citizens, so willing to share their knowledge. For those on the fence, go to the May Symposium in New York. Approach a more experienced member and introduce yourself. Odds are that it’ll be a winning trade – you’ll learn a great deal and enjoy the experience. Personally, my results from meeting older traders is better than my results from trading. Never a loser in the former, and several years of enjoyable conversations with Mike Epstein that I will always value.  While we try to summarize Mike’s impact in this month’s e-newsletter, it can never replace an hour of his time. Take advantage of one the most important MTA benefits and reach out to our more experienced members. I hope to meet many of you at the Symposium, and I hope I have a difficult time breaking through the throng of younger members discussing markets and life with our wealth of knowledge.

Letter from the Editor

We had to add two more pages this month to fit all the content that we think you want and deserve as members of the Market Technicians Association. Technical analysis is a dynamic field and we all struggle to keep up with new developments. We read a lot of research and MTA news and as we prepare Technically Speaking each month, we struggle to fit in all the content that we would like to print while being constrained by our format limitations. I am working closely with the MTA staff to find the best way to deliver high-quality content, and we want to make it more timely, as well. Our goal is to deliver more value for your membership, and the staff has been very responsive in trying to do this. Their efforts are not limited to the newsletter – they look to improve the organization and our benefits as they work for us every day. So we can’t say when we’ll have a solution, but as soon as possible we will expand the information we deliver to you monthly. This month’s newsletter focuses on quantitative techniques. A few investment techniques are presented in great detail, along with back-tested results. You should be able to work with these ideas immediately and make them your own. Profitable trading ideas are one membership benefit that we hope you find among the most valuable. But in bringing you this type of research, we quickly identify the limits of our ability to present readable graphics. The charts need to improve, and that is one of the things we will accomplish as we look at different formats.
