The Role of Subjectivity in Technical Analysis: Read about last week’s STA talk with Tim Parker MSTA
Tim Parker MSTA is a veteran in the field of technical analysis and this was evident in his talk. Tim started the session by asking who in the room was optimistic about the state of the financial markets. Around 30% […]
IG TV host Jeremy Naylor this week invited in one of their clients, Adrian Rye, an independent technical analyst. Trained as a commercial financial analyst, he comes across well: honest, believable and clear. Better and better: his charts are superb. […]
While teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg is only half-way across the North Atlantic Ocean in her seriously carbon-neutral sailing yacht, central bankers from all over the world flew in yesterday – many in private jets – to Jackson Hole, Wyoming’s […]
Recorded on the morning of 14th August 2019, the day after President Trump decided to postpone new trade tariffs on Chinese goods until the 15th of December – just in time for Americans to buy their Christmas presents – Chris […]
Technical Analysis by Clive Lambert MSTA: A journey through a career in the City using Technical Analysis
Technical Analysis is the study of the markets using price action and data. That’s probably the simplest way to describe it, but what does that mean? To explain this I thought I’d take you through my own journey; my 30+ […]
MACD: what is it, how is it used and looking at its application with EURUSD GBPEUR DAX & GOLD. IGTV speaks with Lee Sandford from TradingCollege.co.uk. Click here to view.
If I use moving averages at all – and these are certainly not one of my preferred technical analysis tools – I opt for the 9 and 26-period ones of the Ichimoku cloud system; I will also use a crossover […]
Yesterday I was lucky enough to be interviewed on IG TV for their Charting the Markets show (which you can view in the blog section [top right] of the STA’s homepage www.sta-uk.org. ). Before and after we went on air […]
In the mornings I work from a desk, admittedly of Victorian workhouse-style layout, facing East over The Shard at the Financial Times’ headquarters. Always the first one in on the 5th floor, it’s lovely to watch the sun rise and […]
Continuing our series of videos of lectures recorded at IFTA’s annual conference held in London in October 2014, I give you one of my favourites: Robin Mesch, who founded the firm and is a veteran US futures trader. Not only […]
At our December monthly meeting and Christmas party, Credit Suisse veteran and member David Sneddon was awarded a Fellowship by the Society, recognising his contribution to technical analysis. After what he described as ‘’a very stimulating and fantastic career’’ he […]
As part of our offering to members (plus all and sundry), we are sharing videos of lectures by some the most important contemporary technical analysts. We start with legend John Murphy, who’s text book ‘Technical Analysis of the Futures Markets’ […]
Being a ‘fear and greed’ sort of technical analyst, I’ve been having a great time with stock market indices this month; big moves, punchy candlesticks, speechless equity analysts backpedalling. Such fun! One thing that did make me sit up and […]
Over to the conference centre at America Square yesterday evening, to an event jointly hosted by the Society of Technical Analysts (STA) and the Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst Association (CAIA). A great layout with semi-circular tables for the many attendees, […]
Brian Marber, Fellow of the Society of Technical Analysts, passed away on 9 June 2018. He had been granted a Fellowship in the early years of the Society for his great contributions to the field, in investing in and trading […]
In our Spring 2017 Market Technician journal, David McMinn did an article predicting we were due a sell-off in the stock market in December 2017. The actual event arrived later than expected in early February 2018 with two one day […]
Context is the critical element in your search for opportunities, not a price and direction forecast. Enthusiasm, what Greenspan called back in the 90’s “irrational exuberance” is the hallmark to a late stage of a Great Bull market, like it […]
As usual the STA Annual Dinner was timed to coincide with the Liberal Party’s annual conference, this year in sunny Bournemouth – as billed on their web site. This means that we had the whole of their gorgeous club pretty […]
Like most investors in the Stock Markets when I started investing back in 1999 I was an amateur. I got caught up in the DotCom hype and after losing money after the bust, I stayed away from the markets for […]
This week’s meeting was dedicated to the new MSTA’s who had recently qualified from the STA exams. It was apparent we had some excellent graduates from some of the conversations I had at the drinks portion of the evening. However, […]
The evening of the US election, with a general consensus betting on a Hilary win, the STA flock turn up to see one of our very own speak at the Bitish Banking Association. Nicole Elliott is famed for bringing Ichimoku […]
Last Thursday, the STA participated in the annual JPMorgan run to raise money for Cancer Research UK. This year we had a great turn out with over 15 runners who all did extremely well. We started at the Prince Albert […]

Organised by Tom Hicks MENG MSTA MSCI, and more importantly the STA’s Head of Programmes, for many members it was an opportunity to scale new heights – if you could manage the rather complicated lifts to the 17th floor, that […]
We all know that the prime mover of technical analysis is a time series analysis of market prices, sometimes labelled as ‘descriptive statistics’ by statisticians. They then call all further analysis based on this data ‘inductive statistics’ which include forecasts, generalisations, and extrapolations.
Why oh why did I tell Professor Russell Napier that traditionally the speaker at December’s meeting should be brief because he kept STA members from the canapés and drinks at the after-party? The man is quite the maverick and rattled […]
