Tony Sycamore: Understanding Intermarket Relationships - Plenary

Intermarket analysis has been used by bank and hedge fund traders for many years. However outside of those circles it remains largely unknown. This is a unique opportunity for private traders to learn about how seemingly unrelated markets are in fact linked and how bank and hedge fund traders apply intermarket analysis.
An understanding of intermarket relationship?s will help provide better insights into market movements and in turn support better trading outcomes.



Tea, Coffee and Networking - Atrium

LUNCH: Table discussions topics and networking - Restaurant



Kevin Saunders: Trading Models are Wrong, But That's  OK - Plenary
Trading models are never perfect. Sometimes they will be wrong. It is impossible to predict all market outcomes because the real world is nuanced. Models are invaluable, however, because unlike the complex world, models are predictable. So why not trade the model, instead of the market? Kevin will speak about building portfolios of robust trading logic and working with weaknesses inherent in trading systems. It is all about taming the beast via system portfolio management.


Break - Plenary


Bruce Vanstone: Cross Sectional and Time Series Momentum - Plenary
Much of Bruce's work over the years has been focused on both the cross-sectional and time-series momentum anomalies. In his presentation, Bruce will explain the momentum approach, the techniques and potential pitfalls in momentum investment, and the academic and statistical evidence supporting it. Bruce will also show some of his latest research on momentum, including new ranking metrics, and the application of momentum to ETFs.



Tea, Coffee and Networking - Atrium



Stephen Harvey: New Market Wizards; Old Market Gods - the changing risk landscape of Technical  Analysis - Plenary
During this conversation I will review the current landscape of Technical Analysis and consider what it is that binds our discipline together. I will consider a mixture of some of the more common trading risks discussed in the literature and those that are equally common - but rarely discussed. Consideration will also be given to emergent risks. For each risk identified, effective mitigation strategies will be outlined.
In keeping with the Conference's emphasis on the practical application of knowledge a specific tool and methodology for the management of any risk will be provided. The presentation will be sufficiently grounded in the evidence to enable attendees to separate the facts about risks from the hype and the headlines.
