LETTER FROM THE EDITOR
This month’s issue of the magazine is the sixth month in a row we are featuring content from the Annual Symposium. That meeting lasts just a few days but it truly does provide months worth of ideas for attendees. Planning is underway for the 2016 Symposium and each year is always better than the previous year. It’s not too early to start making plans to attend. This month’s magazine also includes examples of the latest research into technical analysis and historical perspectives of the field. As always, we hope you find actionable ideas in each issue. Remember, submissions for the 2016 Charles H. Dow Award are now being accepted. More details are available by clicking here. Submissions for other awards, including the MTA Annual Award and the Memorial Award, will also be accepted soon. If you know of someone who should be recognized with one of the MTA’s awards, now is the time to plan their nomination. You can always provide feedback on Technically Speaking by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
