            [post_content] => The summer doldrums are upon us but given the slowdown in economic activity, it is hard to tell the difference. The pandemic remains topic one, while politics is creeping higher up the list. How will stocks do if Red wins? Or if Blue wins? Or if the rapper is actually serious?

As technical analysts, fortunately we don’t have to worry too much about all that. The market will sniff it out for us and it will be our job to read the signals it provides.

How have you all been coping with the socially distanced, everybody has cooties, world? We’d like to know so send in a few notes to us here at What are your clients doing differently? What are their views? Are you working from home? How has your business changed? And what can the Association do to help you?

Our President, Scott Richter, offers up some resources in his note within. However, due to last minute editing issues, we are without a feature article this month. Perhaps you, dear member, would like to submit something? As long as it is not a sales pitch or a black box, we’d love to read about an analysis or technique you use.

Have you read a good book on trading or analysis? Why not send in a quick half-page review?

What about software? Are you using something that is really helpful or unique? Tell us about it.

Otherwise, we’ve got Association news inside here, reviews of the June NY, Northern Ohio and India virtual chapter meetings and our member interview with Robert Peirce. Bob is retired now after a long career but still offers up his excellent long-term analysis to various chat rooms. We also have an exciting update on some new additions to our Academic Partner Program.

Don’t let the new world order get you down! And don’t let that be an excuse not to participate in your Association.

Letter from the Editor

In this issue of Technically Speaking, we provide a great deal of information on market breadth. An interview with well known technician Dick Arms provides insight into the work and current thinking of an industry legend. Several articles detail a small part of the work of Dr. Humphrey Lloyd, unknown to the majority of technicians. Although trained as a pathologist, he has written widely on technical analysis and has developed unique and useful indicators. In learning about Dr. Lloyd’s work, I personally was struck by the similarity to the life of a technician who came to the field late in life but produced more than many others who spend their whole lives researching market action – Arthur A. Merrill, CMT. Both enjoyed great success in their original profession. Both brought the skills they employed in that profession to the markets. Both men were prolific authors, sharing their knowledge with all who wished to learn. But the most defining characteristic of both is that they can best be described as “gentlemen.” This is an adjective that few aspire to in the current environment. Wall Street is more associated with greed than anything else today. But there are still gentlemen and gentlewomen in our field, and I strongly urge the young technicians to reach out to them and learn about technical analysis, and life, from these examples of the life well lived.
