Presentations for the STA

STA Monthly Meeting September 2011 Maintaining Positions within a Trending Market

Within his presentation, Richard will cover the current outlook for global fixed income markets, stocks and FX. He will highlight how he uses a combination of momentum, trending and sentiment to establish the directional risk and how he attempts to obtain full profit potential by staying with the trend.

Technical Analysis – Staying with the Trend

STA Monthly Meeting November 2006 Sentiment, Momentum and Trending

Richard is not going to teach any ground breaking new techniques, as his approach can be regarded as very traditional, but will talk about how he successfully uses what he believes to be the three most important building blocks in any day to day analysis – Sentiment, Momentum and Trending, showing how very simple rules can be applied to markets. As well as highlighting his approach, Richard will also take a look at how these can be applied to the current outlook in Fixed Income, FX and Stock markets.

Speaker

Price does not align to time

Kevin will look to demonstrate what it is he looks for when placing a trade. This includes market entry point, stop and target calculations. There are only 4 trades that are ever placed. In addition, this will include the frustrations experienced by the format that traditional charting packages use. This is always a series of open, high, low and closing price data, traditionally bar charts and or candlesticks.

Kevin has a view that many aspects of Technical Analysis remain in their “infancy”. Market movement understanding is not common. Kevin is also of the belief that markets do not reflect “mass psychology”. That markets are mathematical, not psychological.

Kevin has the viewpoint that the format that price data is viewed in is simply incorrect. Data becomes a by-product of your chosen time frame. Time frame does not change market position. Time would need to align to your chosen time frame to be relevant, which it does not.
