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 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.

From the Editor’s Desk

This month’s newsletter is the largest that we have published in recent memory. There are two reasons for that - the Seminar announcement and the incredible contributions from the membership. The second half of the newsletter is devoted to providing complete details on the upcoming Seminar. The intent is to answer any question you may have and allow you to decide whether or not this event is for you. I’m sure you’ll agree with me that this event is for anyone with an interest in the markets. Even without the seminar announcement, we would have a very large newsletter thanks to groundbreaking articles submitted by our own members and affiliates. This newsletter is a great opportunity to publish short pieces of research. Although it is not necessary to write in accordance with the scholarly standards of the Journal of Technical Analysis, we will gladly accept thoroughly tested ideas that can help fellow traders profit. Frank Testa provided an article on a new point-and-figure technique and Eric Davidson wrote about a practical means of attaining a disciplined approach to trading. We also have reproduced two pieces of research by Arthur Merrill, CMT, who passed away in January, with the assistance of John McGinley, CMT. We hope you enjoy this issue, and look forward to seeing many of you in New York. If you will be attending the seminar and would like to talk about a newsletter article, please let me know. I would be happy to sit with you and complete an interview or summarize your ideas on technical analysis.
