TSAA-SF Monthly

Date: July 2, 2024 at 5 PM PT

Data and Databases are at the center of the information age we are living in. They are instrumental to the functioning of individual people's lives as well as the many organizations, institutions and society we are all a part of. They are also foundational to Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, as well as other advanced methods for measuring, organizing and understanding our world.

But what are databases really all about?

Join TSAA on Tuesday July 2nd at 5:00p to hear from Mike Jones who will offer some introductory glimpses into the inner workings of how databases actually get things done.

He will give an overview of databases in a general sense, and then show implementations of some common/familiar Technical Analysis Indicators. Using Bollinger Bands, MACD, and RSI he will illustrate how indicators and databases, when combined together, are powerful productivity and analytical tools in the hands of the 21st Century Technician.

"Behavioural Inflection Point"


Market sentiment hit a "Behavioural Inflection Point" across risk proxies YTD, already pricing in the so-called "Fed dovish pivot", as RWA cited in a recent CNBC interview. However, there are several growing indications that the market is overly optimistic on economic growth-market valuations and still aggressively positioned for Fed cuts, while vulnerable to either a policy mistake or/and recession risk. Additionally, a triple whammy of headwinds remain, notably momentum unwind from extremes, rotation fragility and cycle asymmetric risk.

Join Ron William, CIO of award-winning RW Advisory, who will share key insights about the current stage of the investment roadmap. The signature Roadmap model is driven by behavioural patterns and market timing, using a blend of macro, fundamental and technical factors. Major macro markets will be reviewed, notably equities (USA, Europe & Asia), FX (USD), Commodities (Copper, Oil, Gold) & Bonds (US10yr).   


Big picture themes include:
- “Where Macro & Behavioural Technical Analysis Meet” 

-“Gold resurgence in a VUCA world” link

- S&P500 “Fly me to the moon & back?” link


Our event will also include live and interactive “top of mind” audience Q&A.

Recent Webinar: Anatomy of a Trade  

Date: Apr 26, 2022 at 5-6 PM Pacific Time (Recording free for dues paying members; become a member here)

Recording Available Here

About Frantz Herr:

Frantz Herr is a private investor who bought his first stock in 1974 - a semiconductor company (unfortunately it wasn't Intel!). He pursued his investing passion professionally for three decades as an advisor at Merrill Lynch, retiring in 2017. He learned of Richard D. Wyckoff in an investor chat room in 2016, and has been a fervent student of the methodology ever since. After mentoring with David Weis in 2018, Frantz continued his study with Roman Bogomazov at Wyckoff Analytics. Frantz is certain he holds the record for the number of times taking Roman's Wyckoff Trading Course 2, The Practicum. Frantz has solidified his connection with Wyckoff Analytics over the years.

Along with John Colucci, he records a weekly YouTube series "Anatomy of the Trade" in which he and John post analyze completed trades submitted by students of Wyckoff Analytics. Frantz is also the leader of The Process Group, a small membership of elite traders at Wyckoff Analytics devoted to raising their trading practices to the highest level.

The program John and I will be presenting could be titled "Anatomy of a Trade - how we post analyze our trades for continuous improvement within the context of Wyckoff methodology"

About John Colucci, Jr.

John Colucci, Jr. has been involved in stock market and financial analysis for over 30 years. From the early days as a corporate bankruptcy and insolvency attorney, Mr. Colucci poured over financial statements, budgets and cashflow projections to determine the feasibility of financial plans presented to creditors. After early training in forensic financial analysis and fraud detection, Mr. Colucci took an interest in stock market investing from a fundamental perspective. After a series of hard taught lessons beginning in 1987, technical analysis became a bigger focus for investment analysis. After working through the quasi fundamental/technical system developed by William J. O’Neil, Mr. Colucci’s Wyckoffian journey began with the search for meaning in the phrase, “the stock is under accumulation.” After numerous books, blog articles, courses and special events with many of the great Wyckoffian’s of our time, Mr. Colucci is primarily a long/short technical stock and futures trader using Wyckoffian principles--with an occasional financial statement sojourn to celebrate old times. Scanning and filtering are particular passions for Mr. Colucci.

TSAA-SF free event: Andrew Cardwell

Date: Feb 9, 2021 at 5-6 PM PST 

Andrew Cardwell:

Andrew started his work with the Relative Strength Index (RSI) in May of 1978. Although he has researched other technical indicators and studies, he has stated that he has not found anything that yet that can compare to what, or as much as the RSI offers.

Most traders who use the RSI look to it to spot Bullish and Bearish Divergence between price and momentum. Andrew has shown that his "Range Rules" are much more valuable in identifying the trend through the "shift" in the range. Divergences are merely just an overextension of the current move and actually a detour from the primary trend.

“Old School is New School”

With 50 years of perspective, we approached the theme of this year’s anniversary conference as though we’ve been members the whole time!

What makes the TSAA-SF unique among IFTA societies? Our identity as a closely-knit group of chartists. Newer members learn from older members, and the camaraderie is noticeable at your first TSAA-SF meeting. In this modern age, and with the harsh realities of the COVID-19 pandemic, we instituted a big push in 2019 to take all of our speaker content online. So far the response has been amazing and we think the 2020 Annual Conference – our 50th Anniversary event – will showcase the value of membership in the TSAA-SF. We hope you will join us!

Recent Free Webinar: Trading With RSI - The Cardwell RSI Edge by Andrew Cardwell (Dr. RSI)

Date: Feb 11, 2019 at 5:00 PST

Andrew started his work with the Relative Strength Index (RSI) in May of 1978. Although he has researched other technical indicators and studies, he has stated that he has not found anything that yet that can compare to what, or as much as the RSI offers. 
Most traders who use the RSI look to it to spot Bullish and Bearish Divergence between price and momentum. Andrew has shown that his "Range Rules" are much more valuable in identifying the trend through the "shift" in the range. Divergences are merely just an overextension of the current move and actually a detour from the primary trend. Watch the recorded webinar here:
