Intensive One Day Introduction to Technical Analysis - 4 June 2014

In response to demand, the Society is running an intensive one day introduction to technical analysis. These one-day courses are suitable for anyone with little or even no knowledge of technical analysis. They would suit both professional and private traders and investors.

Course objective

The course covers the core technical analysis skills needed for both trading and investment purposes. Technical analysis basics and trading/investment techniques are taught by industry professionals with long and wide-ranging experience in the subject, giving delegates access not only to intensive seminar-style teaching but also to the practical application of TA. The one-day course itself does not lead to a qualification in technical analysis, but would provide a very useful first step towards the highly prized STA Diploma should participants wish to continue their studies.


The technical vs. the fundamental approach; technical analysis basics (different chart types, the concept of support and resistance; pattern analysis); relative strength; Dow Theory & Elliott Wave Principle basics; sentiment; market breadth; candlestick charting; moving averages; momentum indicators; technical strategy.
