While September is traditionally a time to think about going back to school, on Wall Street it seems more like the time of year to head back to work. Volume is usually lower than average in the summer months as traders focus on vacations more than they do on getting the best bid. As our members gear up to face the challenges of returning to work, we offer up some opinions on recent books that can help them refocus and sharpen their skills. One trend I noticed in my summer’s reading list was the emphasis on volatility. The markets have certainly been volatile recently and several insightful authors have offered tips on how to profit from that volatility. We also have a research piece by Ed Easterling of Crestmont Research which shows how prices respond after experiencing volatility. As always, we hope you find this issue of Technically Speaking to be useful as well as interesting. Please let us know what you like, and what you’d like to see. Send me an email at editor@mta.org.

Trading and getting involved in the MTA are the focus of this month's newsletter. Dan Zanger is a short-term trader with an enviable record of success. Ajay Jani offers insights into his thinking, and then we reprint what Dan considers to be among his most important rules. We also review a new book by Larry Connors and Cesar Alvarez from TradingMarkets.com. Short-term trading can offer high potential profits, but these articles also address the risk which is inseparable from trading. We also have news from the MTA Educational Foundation and the Journal Committee. The MTA is constantly advancing into academia and these initiatives are at the forefront of that march. This will add value to your membership and bring added prestige to the CMT designation by improving the acceptance of technical analysis within the investment community. Please let us know what you think of the newsletter, and how we can improve this member benefit for you.

This month’s newsletter focuses on the work of only two technicians. Ralph Vince defined the science of money management and offers some additional insights to our readers. Harry Dent approaches the markets from a unique viewpoint and offers our readers a lesson in thinking outside the box. These types of articles are much longer than we could have presented a year ago when we were restricted to our paper format. The charts presented are also of a higher quality. We hope you find this to be useful. And as always, please let us know what you think.

In Technically Speaking we try to bring you money making ideas and news that impacts the field of technical analysis each month. This month, both are combined into the most difficult article I have ever had to write. Mike Epstein passed away in April. To those who knew him, his death is an enormous loss since Mike’s outsized personality always left you feeling optimistic after discussing the markets or life with the philosopher-trader. In the brief article we include in this newsletter, we attempt to provide a picture of his life. We also attempt to offer a glimpse into the wisdom he shared from his lifetime of experience. Mike knew how to trade, and he traded for a living and for enjoyment. Whenever he spoke, there was an opportunity to learn. Older traders and analysts offer that opportunity. And the MTA facilitates those meetings. It is an incredible organization from that respect – no where else do I see experienced members, some of whom are highly seasoned citizens, so willing to share their knowledge. For those on the fence, go to the May Symposium in New York. Approach a more experienced member and introduce yourself. Odds are that it’ll be a winning trade – you’ll learn a great deal and enjoy the experience. Personally, my results from meeting older traders is better than my results from trading. Never a loser in the former, and several years of enjoyable conversations with Mike Epstein that I will always value.  While we try to summarize Mike’s impact in this month’s e-newsletter, it can never replace an hour of his time. Take advantage of one the most important MTA benefits and reach out to our more experienced members. I hope to meet many of you at the Symposium, and I hope I have a difficult time breaking through the throng of younger members discussing markets and life with our wealth of knowledge.

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.
