LETTER FROM THE EDITOR
The MTA’s Annual Symposium will be held next month in New York City and this month we are previewing the work of two of the speakers. Ned Davis has been completing some of the most original and useful research in the field for decades and we can see several of his charts and studies included in a short article. He will provide many more charts to study in New York. In a separate article, Dr. Tucker Balch provides insights into how we can turn volatility into profits and he will be providing additional practical insights during his presentation.
In the next few months we will be presenting summaries of speaker presentations but these will capture only a small part of the information available at the Symposium. If you haven’t made plans to attend yet, there is still time. It’s actually not too early to start planning for next year either. The Symposium Committee is already preparing for next year’s Symposium and it is their year-long planning efforts that result in a successful Symposium every year.
I look forward to meeting many MTA members at the Symposium and I will be asking what you’d like to see in Technically Speaking. You can also email your thoughts on how we’re doing and what we should include in future issues to firstname.lastname@example.org.
