A presentation held by Katie Stockton on November 10, 2016 as part of the CMT Association’s United Kingdom Chapter.

Technical tools help us identify trends and turning points, putting us in a better position to capture tradable market moves. An indicator that gives a clear “buy” or “sell” signal makes it more difficult for behavioural biases to sway our decisions. Anything that takes some gray area out of the markets is welcome, especially when trends are largely macro-driven as they seem to be these days. Katie Stockton, Chief Technical Strategist of BTIG, LLC, will present her current views and methodology, which employs a collection of tools that are designed for risk management, market timing, and alpha generation. Important concepts include support/resistance and relative strength, with a focus on indicators that provide an informational edge, such as the cloud model and DeMARK Indicators.
