Meeting on the second Thursday 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: Simon Russell BA(jur) BCom GDipApFin&Inv MApFin DFP GCertMgt – Behavioural Finance Australia Director

Topic: Rise of the Cyborg

Big data & sophisticated algorithms have been shown to make some predictions that human minds cannot hope to match. Are humans set to become redundant in a world dominated by machines? The role for professional judgment in the future will be in areas where humans can complement machines, combining to achieve outcomes that surpass those achievable by either humans or machines independently. The session will apply a mix of behavioural finance & artificial intelligence to answer: how should we optimally integrate human and machine investment decision-making? Simon has recently published a book on this topic and will discuss the major conclusions with ATAA members.

Simon is the founder of Behavioural Finance Australia, a specialist behavioural finance consulting and training business. He helps professional investors apply insights from behavioural finance research to improve investment decision-making. His clients include the investment and analyst teams at major asset managers and investment banks. He is a regular presenter on behavioural finance-related topics at industry and academic conferences, and has published books on behavioural finance/professional investment decision-making. Simon has a degree in psychology and a master of applied finance.

 7:00 to 8:00pm: Darryl Nagel — Adviser, Educator and Trader.

Topic:- The Relationship between Gann, Elliott Wave, Fibonacci and Ichimoku.

Darryl Nagel has been a member of the ATAA since the 1990's. He serves as a director on the national board. He is a Councillor of the Sydney Chapter and President of the Remote Chapter.

He started trading the markets in1986 focussing on trading options. He has been a guest panellist on the Australian national Sky Business Channel program "Your Money Your Call”, as a technical analyst. He has taught technical analysis since 2003, including Gann, Elliott Wave and Ichimoku.

He uses Ichimoku to assist his trading. Recently, he has been a student of volume profiling.

Darryl’s passion has been focussed on the psychology of trading. He gave his first presentation to the ATAA in 1996. That presentation can be found in the ATAA Newsletter dated July 1996.

Last year he commenced an ATAA Special Interest Group, the Holy Grail Trader, which focusses on an alternate solution to trading challenges using mathematics (the same that technical analysts use), rather than studying human behaviour.


Darryl will reveal the relationship between some of Gann’s work, the use of Fibonacci within Elliott Wave theory, and Ichimoku indicators

Additionally Darryl will explain and illustrate his simple method of trading using Ichimoku to trade a Gann forecast. Also will show you how to anticipate a period of price consolidation using Ichimoku and how to profitably trade through a sideways market.
