 Techical Analysis

Course Goals and Overview:​​

Technical analysis is becoming more widely used by analysts, portfolio managers and even central banks.   While it was not considered mainstream as recently as a decade ago, technical analysis is now taught on many college campuses and has even made its way into the curriculum of the CFA examinations.  But technical analysis approaches the market from a very different perspective than fundamental analysts – assuming that wisdom is inherent in the markets, not in financial statements.  Technical analysis is used in equity, debt, commodity and currency markets around the world and can be used alone or as a complement to fundamental analysis.

Learning Objectives:

  • Introduce attendees to the field
  • Provide a working knowledge of technical analysis

Course Details:

  • Cover the basic theory and assumptions behind technical analysis
  • Practical tools including chart construction, chart patterns, volume, moving averages and momentum oscillators
  • Current technical examples of major financial markets including a discussion of Dow Theory and what it is signaling to investors presently

Please Note: Breakfast and lunch will be served.
