Letter from the Editor

We’re featuring a couple longer articles this month, which we think fit well in our newsletter. George Rahal takes a detailed look at quantifying potential rewards relative to risk, an important trading consideration. His contribution is well written and understandable to the novice trading system developer while offering new insights to veteran programmers. Andy Ratkai, CFA, recently prepared a report for his clients that brought together several interesting macro insights. In a way, he ties wave analysis into behavioral finance and raises a number of thought-provoking ideas. Buff Dormeier, CMT, continues to share high quality research on methods for applying volume to market analysis. He recently released a book which adds to the Body of Knowledge of Technical Analysis while offering actionable guidance for traders. It’s also that rare book which is interesting and a fun read. Although we never make guarantees in our profession, I am confident that I could guarantee everyone will learn something form this book as Buff combines historical stories with new techniques. Next month, many members will gather at the Annual Symposium in New York. This event is always well-attended and highly educational. It’s also an opportunity to meet other members, and I hope to meet many of you so that I can learn what you expect from your newsletter.

From the Editor’s Desk

This issue focuses on the MTA Education Seminar. Attendees spent two days listening to the latest ideas on trading and learning the fundamentals of technical analysis. Some presentations are summarized in this issue; a few more will appear next month. We also hear about a recent LA chapter meeting, and we look forward to hearing about other meetings throughout the country. The success of the Seminar demonstrates the importance of volunteers to our organization. Look over the list of committees and regions on the back page of this newsletter, and consider what you can do to help. When you have some time this month, contact a committee chairperson or a regional point of contact and talk about what you can do. The leadership of tomorrow’s MTA is working in these groups today, and you’ll be glad you became involved. We’re also looking for someone to take on the task of newsletter editor. We’ve returned this to a volunteer position, in the spirit of every other MTA function. The editor is just another committee chairperson, soliciting help from volunteers and helping deliver incredible value for the small investment we make in our membership.
