STA Monthly Meeting February 2007
In 2000 Clive set up FuturesTechs, which has built up a solid subscriber base (mainly comprising of Day Traders) for its daily service, which now covers 28 markets. Many of these clients have also benefited from Clive’s lively training seminars, which he has also presented for the STA’s education programme.
In his few years as an active member of the STA he has often been asked who these short term traders are, how they trade, and how they use technical analysis. In this talk he will attempt to unveil some of these answers and give an insight into the technical methods employed by these active traders, who, as a group, account for a sizeable chunk of daily volumes on many of the world’s leading exchanges.
Clive is the founder, and continues to be the main contributor, for FuturesTechs. He has been in the City for 24 years, has been in the futures market for 20 years as a broker and trader, and has been writing technical analysis for over 10 years. He is the author of the book “Candlestick Charts: An Introduction to Using Candlestick Charts”.

The main reason for ineffective strategy construction which leads to non-reproducible results in real time and hence inconsistent performance is due to not knowing the 3 critical strategy stats. To overcome this challenge and construct sustainable, scalable and reproducible strategies in a quantitative manner, the Smart Money Framework was developed by the quants in the 1960s. With this framework we will have the 3 critical stats to help us construct optimal entries, stop loss and exits. When this is further combined with volume, our probability of capturing the bigger runners increases. All of the above will be explained further in detail by the presenter.
