Technical Analysis University
Increase your professional financial skill set by adding technical tools
Our Technical Analysis University faculty consists of five of the most well-known technicians in the world. This session is designed for portfolio managers and fundamental analysts who are looking for an intensive one-day course on technical analysis. In just one day, attendees will come away with an understanding of how various charts are constructed and interpreted. The course will cover integrating technical analysis with fundamental analysis and using technical analysis to quickly get an overall sense of the direction of the equity, fixed income, commodity and currency markets, and use movements in one to forecast another.
This one-day event, captured on disc, brings together five notable technicians to educate newcomers to technical analysis on the basics of technical analysis in a series of five one-hour classes. Topics range from basic chart construction, to advanced charting such as point & figure and Japanese candle charting.
Attendees, and now viewers, will learn from one of the most experienced individuals to hold both the CFA and CMT charters on how to meld these two approaches to identify promising investment opportunities. Legendary technician John Murphy wraps up the day with a session on intermarket analysis, explaining how the charts of commodity, currency, bond and equity markets can be used in conjunction with one another to get a broad overall read of the state and likely future direction of global markets. The presentations include a significant amount of time for one-on-one interactions as well as Q&A opportunities with these technicians.
