In this presentation we will examine not only the theory but also the application of the theory. The technical analysis approaches that we will examine were devised at a time when there were no computers. The authors of each approach did not liaise with each other and yet they came to the same very powerful technical analysis concept of which we as traders can take advantage.

Prior to this presentation send Darryl any trades that you would like him to discuss if time permits. Note Darryl’s email address is
