Your Networking Opportunities:

A key feature of our monthly chapter meetings in this really good meeting venue is the Special 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. All visitors pay a $30 attendance fee.

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

 6:50 to 8:00pm:  David Chia  CEO of ‘RED ASSET MANAGEMENT P/L’ and Technical Analyst

Topic: “Technology - a Game Changer”, 2019 – Technology as an enabler

  • Trading is not unlike many other sporting or professional pursuits and endeavours we take on in life, in that a great deal of time is spent in actual doing. I consider it vital that time is set aside to assess how effective one has been and whether there are bits of the process you would amend or discard or even emphasize all the more.
  • To that end, I wish to share with you the huge impact technology has had in terms of how and where I trade, in narrowing down the best opportunities from amongst the noise of the market.

David’s Bio

  • David believes he shares much with the English physicist and mathematician, Isaac Newton, in discovering the existence of gravity. His own enlightenment came during the 1987 equity crash, a year after commencing his career in trading financial markets.  He has, since that time, devoted his life to the pursuit of knowledge in trying to understand, wrestle with and get beaten up by equities, bonds and derivatives.  With 32 years of trading at many of the larger investment firms around the world, he set up in 2007, an asset management business focused on long-only global unconstrained basis.
  • At 62, he remains as passionate as ever about financial education and speaks regularly in the community; loves b&w photography; and is a strong advocate for personal development while on his own journey to discover and experience the best version of himself possible.
