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, […]
Said author Margaret Drabble who came to my school to give a talk years ago. The quote was used recently by Penelope Freeland, a teacher at another school of mine, who was writing about how uncertainty is a condition of […]
All technical analysts have their favourite ways of drawing charts and the indicators and oscillators they find the most useful; that’s only normal. The trouble for those new to the discipline is that the same old charts, on the same […]
I was looking forward to the STA’s first monthly meeting after the summer break. What I hadn’t expected was a sort of ‘two for the price of one’ offering, with two executive committee members, Tom Hicks and Luise Kliem on […]
Randomness is one of my favourite subjects and I don’t really fancy getting into the subject of the efficient market hypothesis but I want to explain a story about technicals and odds analysis. At one of my previous places of […]
Last month my email provider, the increasingly popular and dominant Gmail, warned me they were going to tweak the service, offering a chance to have a peak at their new version. Oh no, I thought, not another new gismo I […]
Last week’s blog, inspired by the Guildhall Art Gallery (11 May – 28 October 2018) exhibition of the work of the artist William De Morgan, looked at symmetry, patterns, and working in three rather than our more usual (for technical […]

And how I get by with a little help from my friends. This gem of a book was included in our book club article in Market Technician magazine, issue 84, because it’s a favourite of STA Committee member Mark Tennyson […]
Working the room at the STA’s 50th birthday party on the 7th June, I had the chance to ask some guests their thoughts on the society. How technical analysis had changed over the last half century, why they had joined, […]
STA members and the Committee are always a font of knowledge. Now that they know I’m always on the lookout for ‘content’ – as it’s known in the trade – they give me leads for further enquiry, newspaper clippings, photos […]
Front row seats for veteran technical analysts, Trevor Neil and myself, at this eagerly awaited presentation. WD Gann expert Tony kicked off saying that the US economy has a 36-year cycle. I don’t know what cycle our speaker’s body clock […]
On the hottest day so far this year, amid weather warnings from the organisers and signal failure causing untold disruption on all London south-bound trains, the intrepid STA fun-runners pitched up for another fund-raising event. An established date of the […]
Following on from last week’s blog where we discussed briefly what Chairman Axel Rudolph had to say at the STA’s 50th birthday party at City Hall – and the bombshell (for me at least) that he was stepping down at […]
