Celebrate International Technical Analyst Day (09/09/2022)
To celebrate INTERNATIONAL TECHNICAL ANALYST DAY*on the 9th of September 2022, we are asking everyone to give a special acknowledgement to any Technical Analysts who have inspired or influenced you. It’s a chance to shine a spotlight on your favourite Technical Analyst for one day in the year! Name them and share how they have impacted your own Analysis & life. If there have been multiple influences or you cannot decide who to give a special acknowledgement, more than one can be named.
We encourage colleagues, clients, and counterparties to say, ‘Thank you!’ to their staff technical analysts and TA providers from around the world on this day.
For me the Technical Analyst that made the biggest impact on me was Francoise Skelley, not only was working with her fun but she crystallised in me the understanding that Technical Analysis was not about ego – being right or wrong – it was simply a tool to help make money and reduce risk. Her mantra was always having a view and a stop! She was also the one who introduced me to the Society of Technical Analysts and encouraged me to apply to go on the board. She was my mentor and my friend, and she is sadly missed.
So, who is your favourite Technical Analyst…or Analysts???

*International Technical Analyst Day 9/9
The Society of Technical Analysts is leading the way in announcing that the 9th of September will be the ‘International Technical Analyst Day’. Eddie Tofpik, STA Chair, first proposed this idea to the Board at our 2 April 2022 meeting. The idea is to give technical analysts and those using technical and chart analysis at funds, banks, brokers, proprietary trading shops and for themselves, a day to get recognition for the hard work, dedication and diligence that they display through all market conditions and events.
We encourage colleagues, clients and counterparties to say ‘Thank you!’ to their staff technical analysts and TA providers from around the world on this day.
