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. Please note that a $30 attendance fee is payable by all non-members who attend.

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.

Topic: "Searching for a Trading Strategy

When starting out in the business of share trading or investing, many people are confused by the huge range of possible analysis methods and strategies. Even with experience, some traders who use discretionary analysis methods manage to overlook some basic principles. This session is a back-to-basics look at some key principles for use by both experienced and novice traders and investors. The ideas here can form the basis of a trading strategy. A case study example will be studied if time permits.
