2020 TSAA-SF Annual Conference 

DateSep 12, 2020 (Sat) 7:45 AM-5:00 PM PT US

RECORDING AVAILABLE FOR ALL DUES PAYING MEMBERS! 


“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! True, some TSAA-SF members have been involved for decades, but the newly indoctrinated make up a growing percentage of members and they cite the legacy of knowledge sharing as the biggest benefit of membership. On this characteristic of the TSAA-SF, we pride ourselves greatly.


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!

  • John Bollinger, CFA, CMT - Creator of Bollinger Bands
  • Linda Raschke - Author of “Trading Sardines” with over 35 years of trading experience
  • Arthur Hill, CMT - Chief Technical Strategist and main author at TrendInvestorPro.com

Crypto assets are subject to the law of supply and demand, and move in cycles.

The webinar will cover the basics of the Wyckoff Method and more advanced techniques applied to the universe of cryptocurrencies.


Alessio Rutigliano’s first encounter with the Wyckoff Method was Henry O. Pruden’s The Three Skills of Top Trading. He is a WTC (Wyckoff Trading Course) graduate and serves as a Teaching Assistant at Wyckoff Analytics. An avid student of intermarket analysis and behavioral finance models, his main focus is the development of sector rotation strategies in the Wild West of digital assets. He curates “Wyckoff in the World of Cryptocurrency”, a blog introducing Wyckoff analysis and trading tactics to low-liquidity speculative environments, including cryptos and emerging asset classes.

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:
