6:00pm: Guest Speaker:- Alan Clement – Quantitative Trader and Systems Designer
Topic: Global Markets Technical Outlook
Markets around the world are still very skittish, but will we see the Santa Claus Rally, or is volatility here to stay for a while longer? Join Alan for his ever popular quarterly market update, where he will pick apart the events of the last few months and determine the levels and patterns to look for in the months ahead. Using a variety of technical tools and chart types, he will delve into momentum, support, resistance, sentiment and market breadth to analyse local and overseas stock markets, currencies and commodities. And this being the final update for the year, we'll also have a look at the outlook for 2016. So if you're looking to update your own market road map, make sure you don't miss this presentation.

He enjoyed a long career in both investment management and with a top-tier investment bank as a software developer and project manager, before going on to manage his own independent trading business. As well as trading the markets, he develops quantitative trading systems which target high risk-adjusted returns, in both local and overseas markets.

6.45pm: Guest Speaker – David Chia - Chief Investment Officer
Topic: Eschewing the noise – for most people. Why the big picture really does say so much more and how you can incorporate it into your own trading strategy.”

When it comes to managing the probabilities that is the share market, projecting too far out on the time horizon is an occupational hazard for most of us mere mortals. It is for that very reason that many investors find themselves engaging in the dogfight that is the domain of the short term warrior. A tiresome endeavour at best for most and a questionable way to lead one’s life, at worst.

David would like to make a case for engaging the markets with a different set of time filters and to share with you, some charts on interest rates that most equity traders do not bother with, but ones he believes are immensely valuable as conjunctional timing tools for the stock market. With the subject of interest rates very much the elephant in the room at present, it is perhaps prudent and timely to better understand what the historical nexus has been between rates and stocks, and how you you may wish to (re)set your strategy heading into the next year.

Having spent most of his working life in the corporate arena of funds management, advising on & trading in all manners of markets, David set up RED Asset Management in 2007 and advises a small niche of clients ranging from private family money to small institutions. At 59 years of age, he is a strong advocate for continuing education and has been passionate about technical analysis for as long as he can remember. Despite formal training in economics and accounting, David subscribes to the soft science of behavioural studies as a critical aspect of successfully engaging markets and managing risk.

Keeping life simple is a goal he strives for, both at work and in his personal life.
