The summer doldrums are upon us but given the slowdown in economic activity, it is hard to tell the difference. The pandemic remains topic one, while politics is creeping higher up the list. How will stocks do if Red wins? Or if Blue wins? Or if the rapper is actually serious?
As technical analysts, fortunately we don’t have to worry too much about all that. The market will sniff it out for us and it will be our job to read the signals it provides.
How have you all been coping with the socially distanced, everybody has cooties, world? We’d like to know so send in a few notes to us here at email@example.com. What are your clients doing differently? What are their views? Are you working from home? How has your business changed? And what can the Association do to help you?
Our President, Scott Richter, offers up some resources in his note within. However, due to last minute editing issues, we are without a feature article this month. Perhaps you, dear member, would like to submit something? As long as it is not a sales pitch or a black box, we’d love to read about an analysis or technique you use.
Have you read a good book on trading or analysis? Why not send in a quick half-page review?
What about software? Are you using something that is really helpful or unique? Tell us about it.
Otherwise, we’ve got Association news inside here, reviews of the June NY, Northern Ohio and India virtual chapter meetings and our member interview with Robert Peirce. Bob is retired now after a long career but still offers up his excellent long-term analysis to various chat rooms. We also have an exciting update on some new additions to our Academic Partner Program.
Don’t let the new world order get you down! And don’t let that be an excuse not to participate in your Association.
