Letter from the Editor
The content in this month’s newsletter is similar to what you’ve come to expect from us. We present very brief summaries of technical perspectives offered by expert technicians Ken Tower, Ken Winans, and Jeff Lay at a recent Trader’s Expo. A link to a video of the entire panel discussion is available on your member homepage. Other articles include a couple book reviews and the Nominating Committee and Dow Award Committee have also provided important information.
This issue of Technically Speaking represents the end of an era, and the beginning of a new one. It is the last one which will be delivered as a hard copy. Beginning in January 2009, we will be using electronic delivery to serve you better.
Initially we will be delivering the same information in a different format. Once a month, we will email a newsletter similar to the other electronic newsletters many of you now receive.
Links to each article will take you to the full text, and there will be an option to print anything you’d like to study in more detail.
As soon as we can, we will add more timely updates. Interim emails will deliver short-term analysis. We will also be able to expand the quantity of material we deliver, including
more reviews of books, software, and the latest products supporting technical analysts.
We are excited about the changes that will come over the next few months. The quality of Technically Speaking will increase, and the value to you, the members, will be enhanced.
Please feel free to offer any feedback to us as we craft your new newsletter. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any ideas, requests, or articles you’d like to have published.
