February meeting back on the second week of the month.

Your Networking Opportunities:

A key feature of our monthly chapter meetings in this really good meeting venue is the Special Huddles 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. First visit free, subsequent visits $40.
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. If a member is responsible for signing up a new member, the member can receive a discount off their next annual membership renewal fee (to be noted on the New Member sign-up form).

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

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

6:00 to 6:50 pm: Warwick Greville

Originally from the USA. Trading since Oct 2006 when I took a small course that told me that I could make a fortune in Forex Trading. I dutifully believed them, and then made $600 on a $1000 account my first day. I was hooked. That turned out to be complete beginner's luck, and a total lack of money management, as I lost the entire account the next week. Then I spent most of my time looking at the "next shiny object" in trading - for many many years. Since spending more time in Melbourne in 2010, I have been the organizer for the, and since 2014 - I have also been trading Crypto Currencies. That's another very exciting industry. Studying and looking more at Forex Trading Robots since 2015. Profitable for several years, and still have ups and downs like everybody else. There are so many scammers selling the "perfect system' that just doesn't work.  I try to guide people away from losing money.   High returns only seem to come from high risk. It's a fun journey, but it's a very rough roller coaster ride. I have settled on longer time frames, and general trend following that's working for me.

7:00 to 8:00pm: Panel Discussion with Robert Brain as Moderator — Alan Clement, Warwick Greville, David Coe and Des Bleakley

Topic:- Trading and Investing Techniques

Members are encouraged to consider questions that they may like to put to the Panel.

Alan Clement:  A Certified Financial Technician, full time independent trader and quantitative trading systems designer.  He trades domestic and international markets using self-designed quantitative systems.  He is also an ATAA national director and local chapter councillor, as well as an international speaker on trading and quantitative strategy design.  You can follow his market analysis and trading Insights at

Des Bleakley:   He retired from the workforce five years ago and now makes his living managing the assets within his SMSF, this being invested totally in equities (and cash). In this regard, his profile is probably closely aligned to that of many other ATAA members. Des has particular views of the market and now he trades to make a return, with a primary focus on keeping his wife in a manner to which she is accustomed. Many other ATAA members will readily relate to this scenario.

David Coe:       David developed an interested in Bonds/Shares in 1977 (whilst in United Kingdom) and later bought Shares/Stocks, initially via employee share plans and then obtained long dated Options again via employee share plans.

In 2007 he became a trader in the FCT Group. David is presently a private Investment and Futures trader using CQG, WebIRESS, Ninjatrader.
