Why You Should Attend This Introduction Seminar
If you are still wondering about whether technical analysis is a tool that you should use to make better trading decisions, I will end off this post with what Bruce Kovnar said during his interview with Jack Schwager, in the the famous trading book “Market Wizards: Interviews With Top Traders“.
Bruce Kovnar, who registered a remarkable 87% averaged annual compounded return in 10 years as the founder of Caxton Associates, a global macro hedge fund with an estimated $14 billion in assets under management (also one of the world’s largest hedge funds), said this during the interview:
For me, technical analysis is like a thermometer. Fundamentalists who say they are not going to pay any attention to the charts are like a doctor who says he’s not going to take a patient’s temperature. But, of course, that would be sheer folly.
If you are a responsible participant in the market, you always want to know where the market is – whether it is hot and excitable, or cold and stagnant. You want to know everything you can about the market to give you an edge.
Technical analysis reflects the vote of the entire marketplace and, therefore, does pick up unusual behavior. By definition, anything that creates a new chart pattern is something unusual.
It is very important for me to study the details of price action to see if I can observe something about how everybody is voting. Studying the charts is absolutely crucial and alerts me to existing disequilibria and potential changes.
Some Testimonials From Past Course Attendees
This introductory seminar will also be the foundational course to the “Technical Trend Trading: The Complete System” intermediate 2-day course.
This beginners course is not a preview seminar.
It is a knowledge-packed 2hrs seminar that places tons of emphasis on showing you many enlightening examples and case studies on why Technical Trend Trading is one of the simplest and straight-forward strategies for most retail traders and investors.
Most of the foundational knowledge that I share in this beginners course, I will not elaborate on them again in the intermediate course.
This is the reason why I’ve made it a prerequisite that anyone who wishes to attend the intermediate course must attend this beginners course first.
To put it simply, if you have not attend this beginner’s course, you are not allowed to attend the intermediate course even if you are willing to pay a thousand bucks.
As a responsible trainer, I will not allow you to try to learn flying if you have not even learn how to walk yet.
So be patient and learn what is important for your foundational building as a trader /investor first.
