7:00pm: Frank Watkins – Trading and Investing with Price Patterns

In this presentation Frank will go back to the very basics of pattern recognition showing how this tried and proven method can give you "The Perfect Trade". In this day and age with mobile phone apps, Twitter and general social media, it is too easy to trade, to allow "hot tips" to cloud your judgement. Frank's view is that most traders trade far too much. By the same token, investors probably trade too little, so the use of Pattern Recognition can be the answer for both traders and investors. Frank will present his fairly unique approach to trading, including, his best buy signals, sell signals, risk management strategies and general trading plan.

Frank Watkins first traded the Australian stock market during the “Poseidon Boom” in 1969. During “The Gold Boom of 1979 and 1980 he became actively involved in the market and has been heavily involved since.

Frank’s broking career started in Adelaide in 1986 in the commodity market, and it was here that he began to follow his passion for educating private retail clients at the Securities Institute of Australia. His commodity broking career continued for over ten years, during which time he returned to his native Western Australia. Since then he has managed “night desks” with direct access to the trading floor of various international exchanges.

Frank has had an involvement in software development since 1986 and has operated his own successful Commodity broking firm in Western Australia. More recently he incorporated Pro Trader Pty Ltd in 1998. Pro Trader has developed a unique stock market scanning software application. This software was the first to successfully incorporate Darvas scanning capabilities.

Frank has been a regular speaker at ATAA (Australian Technical Analysts Association) meetings across Australia and at STANZ (Society of Technical Analysts New Zealand) meetings as well as AIA (Australian Investors Association) meetings. He has presented various lunchtime lectures at the ASX in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and the Singapore Exchange, as well as presenting on local radio. He is well known for his practical, common sense and easy to understand approach.
