STA Monthly Meeting January 2009
Brian will cover the properties of mathematical sine waves and the effect of various moving averages on these. He will then highlight the difficulties caused by the variations in amplitude, wavelength and phase of the cycles present in market data. However, techniques will be described which will find the small number (10%) of securities (or indices, forex) whose cycles are currently passing through a period of stability. These stable cycles can be isolated and categorised into short, medium and long term wavelengths. The summation of the stable cycles in each category gives a very accurate prediction of trends into the near future.
Following a career as a scientist and university lecturer, Brian set up his own business to produce software for the mathematical analysis of the stock market. He has published many books and articles on the application of channels and cycles to market data. Brian is also a local councillor and was Leader of Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council until recently.

STA Monthly Meeting – October 2023
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.
