Letter from the Editor
The Market Technicians Association is continuing to evolve and remain current. We try to capture that in this newsletter, highlighting some of the activities within the organization while featuring the analysis of members and introducing new ideas from the field of technical analysis.
We are also introducing a new feature this month where we will review ethics in our profession. As we grow in stature in the financial community, it becomes more and more important to maintain the highest ethical standards. In fact, our Code of Ethics is one of the biggest benefits of membership – it ensures employers and clients that we follow rules, and that our work is based upon more than guesswork. This column will hopefully focus some thinking on ethics, which needs to be considered in all aspects of analysis.
Relevancy of this newsletter depends on contributions from you. Consider publishing an example of your analysis or an insight into some aspect of the very dynamic field of technical analysis. We will maintain the highest standards of publication, so your work will be showcased along with other high quality writing. If you have anything you’d like to submit to Technically Speaking, or any comments about our newsletter, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
