Richard Lake

Richard Lake was one of the founders, and a former Chairman, of ACTA, the predecessor of the STA. He was also one of the earliest exponents of technical analysis among the institutional stockbroking community in London, and produced technical reports from the mid 1960s until around 2012. He was responsible for persuading a number of initially sceptical fund managers that charts could be of major assistance in their investment decisions. Richard has been a frequent speaker at technical analysis conferences over the years, both in the UK and elsewhere.
