Northern California Chapter Chairs

Date: Thursday, June 22, 2017

Time: 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM

Presenter: Steven Moffitt

Topic: A New Look at Technical and Fundamental Predictors of Market Crashes
Steven will also discuss his new book, “The Strategic Analysis of Financial Markets.” The Framework, is premised on the belief that markets can be understood only by dropping the assumptions of rationality and efficient markets in their extreme forms, and showing that markets still have an inherent order and inherent logic. But that order results primarily from the “predictable irrationality” of investors, as well as from people’s uncoordinated attempts to profit. The market patterns that result do not rely on rationality or efficiency.
A framework is developed for understanding financial markets using a combination of psychology, statistics, game and gambling analysis, market history and the author’s experience. It expresses analytically how professional investors and traders think about markets — as games in which other participants employ inferior, partially predictable strategies. Those strategies’ interactions can be toxic and lead to booms, bubbles, busts and crashes, or can be less dramatic, leading to various patterns that are mistakenly called “market inefficiencies” and “stylized facts.”
