Topic: Trading the Resources Rebound
A)  Perfecting the timing of stock purchases.
B)  How to choose the best “recovery stocks”
C)  Managing your portfolio.
D) Frank’s choice of stocks to buy

Frank believes there are some great opportunities just around the corner.
But: you need a robust plan;
- you need to do the hard work.
- you need have total confidence in your plan.
- you need to be nimble and take profit.

In this presentation Frank will demonstrate how he manages various funds and plans all aspects of a trade.
Frank Watkins first traded the Australian stock market during the “Poseidon Boom” in 1969. He traded intermittently from then until 1979 when gold prices soared. In 1979 and 1980 he became very involved in the market during “The Gold Boom” and has been heavily involved since.
Frank’s broking career started in Adelaide in 1986 in the commodity market. His commodity broking career continued for over ten years during which time he returned to his native Western Australia. However it was in Adelaide that Frank began the education side of his business at the Securities Institute of South Australia. He continues to educate private investors to this day.  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 of software application. This software was the first to successfully incorporate Darvas scanning capabilities and in another world first the software included a detailed “Trade Planner”.  Frank is a great believer in “keep it simple”. He is also a great advocate of technical analysis and believes that timing the market is imperative rather than time in the market.
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, and Perth and at the Singapore Exchange as well as on local radio.
