From the Editor’s Desk
As former “Technically Speaking” Editor Mike Kahn wrote in the July/August 2001 issue, “…my big farewell as editor of ‘Technically Speaking’ was a tad premature last month…”
By now, you all know that the Board of Directors met in Woodbridge over the weekend before Christmas and is determined to build on the greatness of the MTA to create a more professional organization on our behalf. This newsletter can assist the Board in communicating with the members, and we, the membership, can communicate with the Board. I’d like to be a part of the solution, and will be working with the Board of Directors over the remainder of their terms to ensure that we hand off a first rate newsletter to next year’s leadership.
In future months, Board members will share their thoughts on the MTA, summarize their accomplishments and detail their plans within the pages of “Technically Speaking.” Members are also being offered an opportunity to share their thoughts within these pages. Articles about any aspect of technical analysis are always welcome. Also welcome are Letters to the Editor praising or pummeling the MTA. Whether favorable or not, ALL letters will receive fair consideration for publication. In fact, letters of dissent will be given top priority. The only requirement is that solutions must be proposed to any problems identified.
I hope that you find this month’s issue informative. We’ve included several articles about technical analysis, along with some news about MTA business. Articles for the future would be greatly appreciated – next month we would like to highlight indicators and everyone is encouraged to submit a description of how they use their favorite indicator. Charts may also be submitted, although they are best printed with a white background and dark colored lines.
