  • ATAA Member since Jan 2014

Des Bleakley has been a member of the ATAA for the past couple of years and has been a share investor for over 20 years. He retired from the workforce five years ago and now makes his living managing the assets within his SMSF, this being invested totally in equities (and cash). In this regard, his profile is probably closely aligned to that of many other ATAA members.

Having a mathematical background, Des is naturally drawn towards charts to assist with trading decisions in support of his trend trading philosophy. As such, he has tried many different indicators in search of that elusive "Holy Grail", and has gone down many interesting but not perhaps fruitful alleys over the years. He subscribes to the "Keep It Simple - Stupid" principle, and will show how an approach along the "KISS" lines can be implemented without too much effort, and yield satisfactory results. The desire to over complicate matters is a constant threat.
