Your Networking Opportunities:

A key feature of our monthly chapter meetings in this really good meeting venue is the Special Networking Session where you have the opportunity to make new friendships with like-minded colleagues, to help you build your skills and knowledge and to improve your trading / investing results. Of course, you will also be able to network with your existing friends and colleagues and talk about the markets — both past market performance, and where the market might be going to in the near future.

Visitors are welcome. Please note that a $30 attendance fee is payable by all non-members who attend.

All first-time visitors and new members are welcome to join in the “Newbies Huddle” during the networking session. This will provide you with information about the ATAA, and the basics about Technical Analysis, and some tips about going forward.


5:00 to 6:00 pm: Informal Networking Session — Mingling with your colleagues.

ibis Hotel, Level 1, 15-24 Therry Street, Melbourne

The meeting will start promptly to enable all ideas to be covered.

6:00 to 6:05 pm: Notices, news events and Updates

6:05 to 6:10pm: Alan Clement — Trading Strategy Designer and Trader

Topic: “A Model Portfolio for The Chapter”

Alan will update the portfolio idea introduced a number of months ago.

6:10 to 6:30pm: Robert Brain & Paul Ash

Topic:- Trading insights and hands-on chart reading — Part 2

Remember that the share price charts summarise the opinions of the market participants, and every chart tells a story.

In this session we will be sharing collective ideas and experiences so that the less experienced members and visitors can benefit from the experienced ATAA members sharing their knowledge. And the experienced members might pick up some tips so they can tweak their own ideas.

How can we effectively use price charts to analyse whether a stock should be bought or not? How can we interpret the price action? and the volume? and the various chart indicators that are available? How can we understand the stories in the charts? This session will continue from our April 2019 session on this topic.

About 80% of ATAA members are trend traders* on ASX stocks.  In this session we will focus on this, and demonstrate the use of real price charts (using a laptop with no internet connection), and ask the audience to provide input — your own thoughts, experiences and suggestions. We are looking for the best thoughts and ideas. We will look at:

  1. Limiting our stock universe to liquid stocks.
  2. How to find uptrending* stocks.
  3. How to confirm an uptrend, and find chart patterns.
  4. A couple of popular chart indicators.
  5. Possible “set up” or “trigger” conditions for an entry.

6:30 to 6:35pm: Break

6:35 to 8:00pm: Gary Burton CTFe Past President Sydney Chapter and National Vice President 2012, Technical Analyst & Private Trader

Topic:- “Sometimes we can know too much Technical Analysis”

Keeping it simple.

Gary will discuss the Relative strength Indicator in particular the Swing Buy and Swing Sell signal.

The relative strength Indicator can put probability of a successful outcome dramatically on the side of the trader.

Textbook trading Idea’s proven and explained.

Many older text books have strong trading strategies that produce powerful out comes in today’s markets.

Based on Gary’s work with Thomson Reuters, how the simple text book methods can produce consistent results.

We will look at the setups and some further back tested outcomes along with the current proven trading results.
