A webcast presentation originally held on April 1st, 2020 by JC Parets, CMT as part of the CMT Association’s Educational Webinar Series.

JC Parets, CMT does not know anything about viruses. However, for investors trying to understand risk/reward relationships in the current markets, this presentation should not be missed. The All Star Charts team analyzes global securities markets based 100% on the supply and demand dynamics. Their timeframe is simple: JC and his team look out weeks and months. For intraday traders or ultra-long-term asset allocators in sovereign wealth and pension funds, this presentation may not apply directly to your decision making. For every other investor managing an intermediate-term time horizon, these tools are invaluable.

Candlestick charts guide JC’s daily analysis of global markets. He also reviews 3000 individual price charts weekly with just bars. No moving averages or momentum or anything else on the chart – just bars. Simplicity is surprisingly illuminating.

The market has taught JC, the hard way, to check his ego at the door and always remember that the future is unpredictable. It doesn’t matter how loud they get on TV, they don’t know anything that you don’t know about what will happen tomorrow, next week, or next year. In light of that fact, it all boils down to how well investors manage risk.

Join us Wednesday, April 1st to brief your team on a top down view of current market conditions including any improvements in market breadth, bullish divergences and other signs of bottoming for individual equities or global indices. JC will also point to non-correlated assets in the current environment and important ratio charts and intermarket relationships that point to opportunities even in the face of profoundly bearish conditions in February and March. Remember what Ned Davis taught us, it’s not about being right, it’s about making money.
