Letter from the Editor
The MTA Symposium held in May was very successful in every way. Attendees had plenty of time to interact with each other and the sponsors, and each speaker presented practical information. In this month’s newsletter, we try to present some details on the event. We’ll have even more from the Symposium in the July issue. But it is impossible to capture all the information in Technically Speaking. I’m already making plans to attend next year’s event, and hope to meet even more of you in New York. As anyone who has ever studied for the first level of the CMT exam knows, technical analysis is built on the assumption that history repeats itself. Many successful technicians study the history of the markets and economics. They often understand how politics affected the economy, and the markets. To bring a long-term understanding of the markets into focus, we are reprinting an article on the history of currency. This was researched by Dr. Brian Taylor, who details the history of every currency at his web site (https://www.globalfinancialdata.com/index_tabs.php?action=ghocmainpage).
One theme at the Symposium was that success in our field requires good communications skills. Many have learned that clients like stories with their analysis. This is fairly common when presenting an analysis of equities. Using the resource provided by Dr. Taylor can help you highlight stories even when analyzing the foreign exchange markets. While current politics is interesting, the historical perspective adds a sense of comfort for many clients.
We’ve also included a product review for High Growth Stock Investor software. HGSI has been a long-time supporter of the MTA and offers a discount to our members. Our members and affiliates receive the first 60 days of the data service for free and a 17% discount off of the regular monthly subscription price thereafter. Sponsors and supporters of the MTA make events like the Symposium affordable. We’ll be featuring more product reviews in the coming months to help you become familiar with the diverse group of companies that offer benefits to our members.
