STA AGM and Xmas Party: Tuesday 12 December 2023
At 6:30 pm One Moorgate Place was abuzz with at least two office Christmas parties. The STA one kicked off sedately with our usual Annual General Meeting where Chairman Eddie Tofpik outlined some of this year’s highlights. April’s Technicals to Trading Systems was such a success that another will be held 16th April 2024 – so save the date or better still, book now via our website www.technicalanalysts.com
The first International Technical Analysts’ Day on the 9th September seems to have been well received so another date for your diary in 2024. Texts, photos and other media material of people who have influenced your career in technical analysis are requested.
It has been confirmed that London will be hosting the annual International Federation of Technical Analysts meeting in 2026, so ideas and volunteers will be most welcome.
STA Treasurer Karen Jones noted that 2023 had been a very good year for our finances, where the society turned a £120,000 surplus. Diploma Part 1 enrolment and exams hit a new record high. However, over the next two years considerable outlay is expected in order to upgrade management systems, the website and the replacing of servers.
Richard Adcock resigned as Company Secretary. I found out that it’s because he wants to spend more time travelling and with his family because his wife has not been well. He will be replaced by Keval Dhokia who is known to our chairman as they both are from an agricultural commodities trading background. Patricia Elbaz is another new member to the executive committee.
The turnout to the party was good, with many faces I hadn’t seen in years. Also many new members, making for an interesting mix of ages and backgrounds. Adrian Dacruz of Clearstream/Deutsche Börse Group was very pleased to have passed the Diploma Part 2 written exam as he’s been interested in technical analysis for 15 years. The beers went down so well catering staff had to go down to the cellar for reinforcements. And while the canapés were a little slow in appearing when they did they were really excellent and sweet Ciaran made sure to swerve my way frequently. Such fun!
