During the course of this presentation you will learn how markets and geopolitics repeat with absolute precision. You will know how to forecast forthcoming panics and booms.

You will learn how Trump, Brexit and global polarisation mathematically tie in to the rise of Hitler, Karl Marx and the European revolutions as well as the American revolution. In turn, you know what financial and geopolitical cycles are coming together right now and how they are affording us the greatest opportunities of our lifetimes.

Technical Analysis - Trading Tool or Social Science?

Technical analysis has proven to be an invaluable method for trading or investing. But is it more than that? Rather than searching for new ways to slice and dice price into ever more complex indicators, should our focus not be on promoting the theoretical underpinnings of technical analysis to the wider investment community? Murray will explore the history of technical analysis and uncover why conventional, “fundamental” analysis actually followed it. He will highlight how the developing social science of Socionomics was born out of technical analysis and why it deserves to be front and centre in the debate over rethinking macroeconomics. Murray will bring it all together with a look at current market charts and forecasts.

Price does not align to time

Kevin will look to demonstrate what it is he looks for when placing a trade. This includes market entry point, stop and target calculations. There are only 4 trades that are ever placed. In addition, this will include the frustrations experienced by the format that traditional charting packages use. This is always a series of open, high, low and closing price data, traditionally bar charts and or candlesticks.

Kevin has a view that many aspects of Technical Analysis remain in their “infancy”. Market movement understanding is not common. Kevin is also of the belief that markets do not reflect “mass psychology”. That markets are mathematical, not psychological.

Kevin has the viewpoint that the format that price data is viewed in is simply incorrect. Data becomes a by-product of your chosen time frame. Time frame does not change market position. Time would need to align to your chosen time frame to be relevant, which it does not.

Kevin Bull

Kevin Bull started his career in financial markets in 2009, by studying technical analysis on a full-time basis. These studies led Kevin to sit the STA Diploma in 2010 and subsequently to form Kevin has since spent the past […]
