LETTER FROM THE EDITOR
This month we are including a number of charts. As technicians, it is a relatively simple matter to generate charts. The challenge is to create meaningful charts. We think the authors of the charts in this month’s newsletter accomplished that. Each of the charts presented in this issue can be studied to develop new insights into the markets.
Many members enjoy obtaining information on career opportunities. We try to include that information in the newsletter when we can and will be including more information in the next few months about the QGLDX Trading Strategy Contest. This contest has a rigid, quantified process that allows money managers to demonstrate their skill and to obtain a oneyear exclusive contract to trade at least $1 million in assets.
We also have a news release from a company that has created a platform designed to help financial services firms launch new technology applications. The cost and time dedicated to software development can be daunting to professionals focused on the financial markets. New innovations in technology are creating new opportunities for professionals to expand their product offerings.
If you are aware of similar opportunities, please let us know by sending an email to email@example.com.
