LETTER FROM THE EDITOR
This month’s issue of Technically Speaking offers some of the theory underlying technical analysis and several examples of how this theory is applied.
The applications are specific and although diverse, charts are central to each. Although many of us have a number of quantitative tools at our disposal, price charts remain an indispensible part of technical analysis. For that reason, a number of charts are shown.
Jay Lefkowicz, CFA, CMT, uses long-term charts to make a bullish argument for U.S. stocks. Aksel Kibar, CMT, offers insights into some markets U.S.-based analysts may overlook. Nishant Bali ties together principles of market sentiment and intermarket analysis to build the bearish case for U.S. stocks. Each analysis is unique but well-structured and persuasive.
We would like the opportunity to include the work of other MTA members in future issues of Technically Speaking. If you publish research on a regular basis, please consider adding firstname.lastname@example.org to your distribution list.
