The focus of this week’s newsletter is Technical Analysis – the study of price behavior. While few schools formally teach Technical Analysis presently, it is a critical part of stock selection, trading strategy and position management. We’d like to introduce 3 resources for you to get started. These are an introduction to the MTA and MTAEF, links to educational materials and the StockTwits Charts stream.
The MTA (Market Technicians Association) has the main objectives of educating the public, the investment community and its membership in the theory, practice and application of technical analysis. We recommend a visit to their website for more information.
The MTAEF (Market Technicians Association Educational Foundation) seeks to enlist universities and students in the formal education of technical analysis. The MTAEF website contains resources for students hoping to get started in the study of Technical Analysis. There is a Glossary of Technical Analysis here and a Scholarship Fund for students interested in pursuing their Certified Market Technician designation. Please let us know if Technical Analysis is of interest to you or your university.
Below are several links that will provoke further study of technical analysis:

Some nice background from Bulkowski on flags (Thomas Bulkowski)
We close our newsletter with an introduction to the StockTwits Charts Stream, which is a community for chartists who study price behavior across all asset classes and chart reading approaches. If you are an aspiring technician the chart stream is an excellent way to dive into the study of charts. In addition, there is room on each chart to @reply the ones that interest you with questions and comments. Most of the chartists, even the pros, will be happy to field your commentary.
