Our next seminar:

The Most Important Chart of the Day

David Keller
May 15, 2024 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

What’s the first chart you look at every trading day? Dave has a morning coffee routine that begins with a weekly chart of the S&P 500 along with a proprietary technical analysis model based on trend following and price momentum.
In this session, he’ll share why this chart is so important to his daily routine, what it’s telling him about the current market environment, and how to avoid the key mistake many novice investors make with technical analysis!

The presentation will cover several topics including:
    • Having a consistent routine of market analysis is vital for individual investors!
    • The order of operations for this routine, going from macro to micro, is the key to enhancing your market awareness.
    • Mindful investors learn to minimize behavioral biases using a disciplined use of technical analysis tools.
