Technically Speaking includes an interview with a practicing technical analyst almost every month. This month, we feature Amber Hestla-Barnhart’s exchange with Cynthia A. Kase, CMT, MFTA. Cynthia’s interview is striking for several reasons. A standard question in each interview is “What advice would you have for someone starting in the business today?” The answers to this question are always interesting. This month, Cynthia provides a list of what every technician should consider as they strive for success. All readers, new and experienced analysts, should consider spending a few hours working through this list. Cynthia lists 13 short pieces of advice in her answer. Each one of them is important. Technical analysts, and any other professional, will need to “be realistic about the “cost” of meeting your goals. Be prepared to “pay the price.” The other twelve items on the list are equally succinct but could require hours of thought to understand. If you find these interviews and our other content to be valuable, or if you would like to be the subject of an interview, please email us at to provide your thoughts.
