The Market Technicians Association has always been at the forefront of technical analysis and in this issue we demonstrate some of the ways the organization is doing that. We provide summaries of a few of the presentations made at the Annual Symposium in May which included thought provoking and practical ideas. More summaries will be in next month’s issue. We also offer a review of a book by Paul Ciana, CMT. New Frontiers in Technical Analysis includes some original research from Paul and features the work of several other technicians, including some members. This book adds to the Body of Knowledge of technical analysis with the new techniques that are presented and for those without access to a Bloomberg terminal it delivers details on what the most commonly used features of that system are. Last month, while acknowledging those recognized by the Awards Committee, I inadvertently overstated the role that George Lane had in the development of the stochastics.  George Schade, Jr., CMT, provides corrected information in a Letter to the Editor that is included in this month’s issue. George’s work is another example of the leadership that members have in the field. He has studied in depth the history of technical analysis and is an invaluable resource to the organization and this newsletter.

Letter from the Editor

The Market Technicians Association is continuing to evolve and remain current. We try to capture that in this newsletter, highlighting some of the activities within the organization while featuring the analysis of members and introducing new ideas from the field of technical analysis. We are also introducing a new feature this month where we will review ethics in our profession. As we grow in stature in the financial community, it becomes more and more important to maintain the highest ethical standards. In fact, our Code of Ethics is one of the biggest benefits of membership – it ensures employers and clients that we follow rules, and that our work is based upon more than guesswork. This column will hopefully focus some thinking on ethics, which needs to be considered in all aspects of analysis. Relevancy of this newsletter depends on contributions from you. Consider publishing an example of your analysis or an insight into some aspect of the very dynamic field of technical analysis. We will maintain the highest standards of publication, so your work will be showcased along with other high quality writing. If you have anything you’d like to submit to Technically Speaking, or any comments about our newsletter, please email me at Sincerely, Mike Carr, CMT [post_title] => Technically Speaking, October 2010 [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => closed [ping_status] => closed [post_password] => [post_name] => technically-speaking-october-2010 [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2020-03-19 19:58:19 [post_modified_gmt] => 2020-03-19 23:58:19 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => technically_speaking [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [meta_id] => 415330 [post_id] => 47577 [meta_key] => newsletter_content_6_contributor [meta_value] => a:1:{i:0;s:5:"46550";} ) [2] => stdClass Object ( [ID] => 47693 [post_author] => 2 [post_date] => 2010-09-15 12:00:51 [post_date_gmt] => 2010-09-15 16:00:51 [post_content] =>

Letter from the Editor

This is the second issue where we provide a brief summary of a presentation available for viewing in the MTA video archives. Watching the speakers from years ago may seem like a nostalgic divergence from the current markets. Nothing could be further from the reality that these videos are an invaluable learning tool for novice and experienced technicians. The MTA has always served more as a breeding ground of ideas instead of a ‘stock tout club.’ In conversations with early members of the MTA, that is frequently mentioned as one of their goals. They wanted to have meetings where the ideas discussed would withstand the test of time. They felt there were plenty of opportunities to gather and exchange tips. The MTA was designed to be different. The video archives meet this goal in a way that the founding members never dreamed of as a possibility. Of course the technology that makes this possible was not known when the first meetings were held. At that time, New York City was the center of the organization, and the only place to have access to the expert presentations that have long been the standard of the New York meetings. I would guess the regional chapters and worldwide growth of the organization were never envisioned in their original discussions.  With the video archives, and other valuable services available through the MTA web site, you can benefit from membership without ever being in New York. We hope you find Technically Speaking to be one of the benefits of membership.
