Regional Chapters

While the regular monthly STA meetings are held in London, there are also chapters in Scotland and Ireland. The Scottish Chapter is currently run by Alasdair McKinnon and the Irish Chapter by Robert Reid.

Should you wish to get in touch with Robert Reid or be interested in running an STA chapter, please contact Katie Abberton at info@nullsta-uk.org.

Chapters are supported by the STA Board and Administration, who help with mail shots, finance and, where possible, in the provision of speakers for the meetings.

Previously there have been occasional chapter meetings in other locations, notably in the Manchester area, but we are currently short of volunteers who would be prepared to organise such meetings ‘on the ground’.

If you would be interested in running a chapter in your area, please contact Katie at info@nullsta-uk.org.

STA Northern England and Welsh Chapters

The STA is interested in promoting meetings in the North of England and in Wales. If you would like to participate in these as an Associate or a Full Member of the STA, please contact Katie Abberton at STA Administrative Services.

STA Monthly Meeting – September 2018

Tuesday 11th September 2018 at 6.30pm

Speaker

Mathew Verdouw, Founder and Global CEO, Market Analyst International

Quantitative Strategies for Technical Analysis

All too often a Technician’s first foray into being quantitative is performing a back test. Statistically, this is one of the worst places to start a quantitative process. A back test that is performed too early is based on many false assumptions and compounds many errors into the process. The result is that the back test returns are rarely repeatable in real life. In this presentation, Mathew will be explaining what these errors are, how we can avoid them (regardless of what tools you use), and reveal a new Monte Carlo method he developed which allows us to review a valid p-score for our models no matter if they are long term trend following or short term mean reversion strategies. Mathew will go on to explain how as Technicians there is a process that we can follow to rigorously test quantitative ideas.

For any Analyst who wants to research new ideas, or be able to present ideas that can stand up to rigorous quantitative scrutiny, this presentation will help you to see that not only is a quantitative approach is achievable, but as Technical Analysts, we are in the best position to drive advanced quantitative models.
