With plenty of geopolitical, as well as inflationary risks around at the moment, it’s time to 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 out for. 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. Always informative and guaranteed to contain a few surprises, this presentation could act as a useful input to developing your own market road map for the coming weeks and months ahead.

Alan Clement's presentation to the Go Markets - Global Trading POWER Web-conference.

Market momentum is a powerful ally and being able to measure and rank it will tend to keep you on the right side of the market. Alan will demonstrate some methodologies you can employ to filter stocks you may want to buy or sell in your portfolio. He will also demonstrate why market momentum persists and why owning the highest momentum opportunities can deliver superior returns. He will also discuss ways you can manage downside risk in your portfolio, in particular for when markets turn more volatile.
