Educational Web Series

The Educational Web Series is a one hour online lecture that covers an aspect of active investment management. With the MTA mission focused on advancing the discipline of technical analysis, we tend to feature presentations which focus on rules-based strategies, intermarket relationships and macro analysis, volatility, and approaches to managing market risk.

All presentations are focused on educational, not commercial content. The entire webcast runs for approximately one hour, with the presentation typically lasting for 45-50 minutes and the remaining 10-15 minutes reserved for a live Q&A session. In the past the MTA has hosted world-renowned investment professionals such as Martin Pring, Ned Davis, Dennis Gartman, Thomas Dorsey, Charles Kirkpatrick, CMT, and Ralph Acampora, CMT.

Webcast: “Money, Madness and the Markets” with Jeff Weiss, CMT
May 17 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

In this motivational session, veteran Wall Street analyst Jeffrey S. Weiss, CMT presents the case for technical analysis to investors with widely varying levels of investment experience. He will show how treating an investment like a personal relationship can help simplify stock market decisions. Jeff’s goal is to remove some of the complexity from the investment process to achieve potentially improved investment results while emphasizing risk management – the cornerstone of any investment discipline.

As told in his recently published book Relationship Investing – Stock Market Therapy For Your Money, there are rules to consider following in the stock market, just as you need to follow guidelines in a relationship. The two are surprisingly intertwined. They include:

  • Communication—you need to be to understand stock market lingo, just as you need to be able to understand your partner
  • Risk management—resolve when to sell your stock by knowing when to break it off with your partner
  • Timing—determine when to buy a stock the way you decide when to take the next step forward with your significant other

For veteran practitioners, this session will provide a new skill set for relating to clients and observing the market’s movements – as well as relaying the value of technical analysis to a novice audience in motivationally humorous and highly informative risk management terms.

Jeff will also be discussing the current technical state of the market based on his 35+ years in the business, while featuring some relevant graphs. He currently serves as chief technical analyst at Clearview Trading Advisors, Inc. here in New York City.

Webcast: “Forecasting a Volatility Tsunami” with Andrew Thrasher, CMT
May 31 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

A webcast presentation based on Andrew Thrasher’s 2017 Charles H. Dow Award winning research of the same title.

The empirical aim of this paper is motivated by the anecdotal belief among the professional and non-professional investment community, that a “low” reading in the CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) or large decline alone are ample reasons to believe that volatility will spike in the near future. While the Volatility Index can be a useful tool for investors and traders, it is often misinterpreted and poorly used.

This webcast will demonstrate that the dispersion of the Volatility Index acts as a better predictor of its future VIX spikes.
