We’ve finally come to the last article in our 25 part technical analysis series. I hope you’ve enjoyed it and found it beneficial?

Really enjoyed being guest speaker at the Society of Technical Analysts Summer Party & Awards ceremony last week. Asked to do something ‘lighthearted’ and now tagged as the STA’s Peter Kay!

Congratulations and good luck once again to all those students who achieved the MSTA qualification – I hope you found my ‘new technical analysts survival guide’ presentation useful and you’ll remember some of my top 10 tips when you’re at the top of your game!
Traders Surgery 27th June 2017
It was great to see everyone at this month’s Traders Surgery and to welcome more new members. The surgery kicked off with a discussion on Sins and Wins from the previous month, looking at how we can all improve our win/loss ratios.
THE STOP HUNTER DEVELOPMENTS
The eagerly awaited webinars will be trialed at the beginning of July for a Renko webinar and then followed by the Traders Surgery both in person and via a webinar. This is free to members and can be accessed via the webinar page within the Traders Club section of the website.
The new broker offering, FX Pro, will be available in the next couple of weeks. The spreads are low and the platform is very close to a professional Traders platform.
The Traders Club members had identified questions for discussion. A few of the topics covered included; reviewing the Renko strategy as a Technical Analysis Tool, what settings to use for Pivot Points, Stephen’s stop loss strategy when trading.
The lean hogs bearish season is soon to start. The use of Stockopedia as tool to trade equities.
