Letter from the Editor
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.
Mike Carr, CMT
