IFTA South East Asia Webinar Collaboration: ‘Second Semester from Cycle Perspective’

Following on from a similar live Webinar in January this year, IFTA member technical analysis societies in South East Asia put on a great show on the 18th June 2022. Timed to try and incorporate viewers from many time zones, I’m afraid I wasn’t up early enough on a Saturday morning. Luckily Nik Ihsan MSTA, senior chartist at Maybank in Malaysia, kindly shared the YouTube video this week.

Co-ordinated by Irfan and moderated by Andry Sukanto, the Zoom meeting was introduced by Indrawijaya Rangkuti, a director of IFTA, and its president Wieland Arlt. There were a few technical (not analysis!) hitches at the start but viewers, please persevere because these were quickly ironed out and the five presentations were excellent.

The first was by Wan Mohd Hafilzuddin MSTA, of the Malaysian Society of Technical Analysts (MATA); the focus, with a lot of nice charts, was on Elliott Wave. Next up via pre-recorded video, was Jonathan Ravelas of the Philippines. With good slides and an excellent delivery he coasted through the major global markets with great comments on behavioural finance.

The third speaker was Daniel Agostinus, from Asosiasi Analis Teknical Indonesia (AATI), who is a master of Elliott Wave (CEWA) with a focus on fractals using daily and weekly charts. Questions and answers followed as did with the next two speakers. Nicolas Tan of Technical Analysis Society (Singapore) is a market veteran of thirty plus years and two books on FX and CFD trading under his belt. While focusing this presentation on forecasts for the next six months, his favourite time frame is four years. Finally Dr Gema Merdeka Goeyardi (with lots of letters after his name) talks live from Los Angeles on time cycles – and has an Astronacci YouTube channel. He seems to watch a lot of economic indicators.

All this was rounded off with an IFTA plug by Bruce Fraser, a Wykoff expert who collaborated with Hank Pruden at Golden Gate University.
