LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

The MTA’s Annual Symposium will be held next month in New York City and this month we are previewing the work of two of the speakers. Ned Davis has been completing some of the most original and useful research in the field for decades and we can see several of his charts and studies included in a short article. He will provide many more charts to study in New York. In a separate article, Dr. Tucker Balch provides insights into how we can turn volatility into profits and he will be providing additional practical insights during his presentation. In the next few months we will be presenting summaries of speaker presentations but these will capture only a small part of the information available at the Symposium. If you haven’t made plans to attend yet, there is still time. It’s actually not too early to start planning for next year either. The Symposium Committee is already preparing for next year’s Symposium and it is their year-long planning efforts that result in a successful Symposium every year. I look forward to meeting many MTA members at the Symposium and I will be asking what you’d like to see in Technically Speaking. You can also email your thoughts on how we’re doing and what we should include in future issues to editor@mta.org.

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

Magazine covers are a widely followed market indicator. Paul MacRae Montgomery first noted the link between covers and markets and explained that popular media can be a contrary indicator of the markets. Covers have also been the subject of academic research that supported their use as an indicator. A 2007 paper by three University of Richmond professors, Are Cover Stories Effective Contrarian Indicators, “study found a statistically significant correlation between appearance on the cover of one of the magazines and the subsequent performance of the company's stock.” This month, Tom Vician provides a survey of the magazine indicator with a number of charts. Technical analysis is built on charts and Tom’s work is helpful for technicians who want to understand this indicator in historical context. We conclude this issue with a classical interpretation of charts prepared by Susan Berger, who learned to analyze charts while working for John Edwards. Her work shows how durable the basic principles of technical analysis are and how ideas contained in books written nearly seventy years ago are still relevant. If you would like to comment on Technically Speaking or share your work with the MTA membership, please email us at editor@mta.org.
