STA Monthly Meeting – May 2019

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.
