Presentations for the STA

STA Monthly Meeting January 2004 Problems with Patterns, or Can You Believe Your Eyes?

Making use of his knowledge of Behavioural Finance, and incorporating some references to neuroscience, Michael will discuss why some price patterns work, and why some don’t. He will not attempt to cover the full range of Reversal Patterns, but will try to draw universal lessons from a limited number of examples.
