Letter from the Editor
This month we only have a few articles, but it will take serious students of technical analysis several hours to get through them and many more hours thinking about the ideas we present here. Eric Leake and Rob Hanna, CMT, have allowed us to reprint some of their work. Both papers offer detailed and profitable trading strategies.
Enough detail is presented for someone to immediately take their ideas and start trading. More importantly, they each provide enough detail that you can generate your own research ideas and use these papers as a starting point to develop a strategy that matches your own trading style. They should spawn countless research projects, and as you build on their work, you may want to follow their lead and publish it here for the benefit of your fellow MTA members.
Also featured in this month’s newsletter is an announcement from the MTA Educational Foundation discussing an online eBay auction and fundraising event. These are exciting and important events to help raise awareness and celebrate the opening of the MTAEF/MTA Library at Baruch College.
I’m certain that Rob and Eric are not the only two MTA members delivering such high quality research to clients. If you’d like to share your work with your colleagues, please send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
