New features for the STA web site

Unnerving times in the markets and the Society of Technical Analysts has some exciting developments up its sleeve to help you manoeuvre the potholes and avoid the pitfalls of these extraordinary financial times.  We continue to improve the website, both its content and style, and would welcome members’ feedback.

Overwhelming popular demand has jolted us into adding a Bloomberg and Dow Jones newsfeed on the member’s area of the website.  Now STA members have access to professional level market related information that dealers and fund managers have enjoyed for too long.  We feel it gives our technical analysts an edge.

For the first time ever we are introducing a blog to our site, a regular feature that is intended to be a forum for new ideas, reviews, and trends in the thinking behind chart analysis.  Designed to be educational, and hopefully entertaining, we would like to canvass opinion for content that members would feel is useful, enjoyable, and hopefully both!  From surveys conducted already, we understand that this is something you wanted.  Unlike other blogs, it will not be a trading tip-sheet type of thing – there are probably way too many of those already – but something more along the lines of informed opinion and discussion.  Themes are myriad and as well as techniques, tactics, software and publications, we aim to include discussions of the industry in general, employment conditions, and help in Diploma exam preparation.

Above all, we would like to make the website as inclusive as possible.  We really mean it!  Maybe even a platform for discussions at networking events like the monthly meetings.  We hope to have short videos and if you would like to let us know and we will set something up as soon as we are up and running.  Please email us at

To paraphrase what the media business says: all feedback (positive and negative) is good feedback.
