A message from Canadian Association for Technical Analysis

Hello friends of the Canadian Association for Technical Analysis.  We have had three events since October.  Two were free for all, and the most recent was a members only event.  The realities are members help us provide quality content.
The presentations began with Mr. Keith Richards.  The result was he placed an excellent perspective on sectors that he saw as moving to interesting levels.  Keith also demonstrated how “To beat the Bear”.  His discussion on Amazon (AMZN) certainly helped yours truly make money in a short period of time. 
The following presentation had Mr. Ron Meisels that spoke about the VIX chart and how to use it catch prices near market lows.  Additionally, he was convincing in his view that buying below the 200 day moving average is high risk.  There are stocks with less risk, concentrate on better charts. 
Our most recent event was Mr. Greg Schnell.  Greg showed us profoundly logical techniques for selling issues to book a profit and reduce risk.  I learned if the stock signaled another buy signal, you get back in!  This was a members only event.  Our feedback from attendees is clearly favourable and appreciative of Mr. Schnell.
It’s clear three presentations each presented excellent observations that add to your trading skills.  Together, they are generating remarkable value to potential for improving results in members portfolios.  Now, extrapolate the knowledge and add soon to come skills.  You will be in a position of growth that makes you confident and a greater chance to prosper.

    AAPL – Poised to break through resistance at 152.94 on its’ way to test the 157.03 high.
    PFE – Never broke down after that surge higher on the news of its’ oral drug to treat Covid. It has had new all-time high closes and should take out the intra-day high of 51.41 soon.

    That’s it for me for now. Happy trading.”””

    Wow! Nice calls Mr Larry.

    In the meantime my CSCO’s turned to Merde.

  2. Larry/ON Says:

    Rol Lew – It’s NVDA that you want to be in for semis. I called AMAT wrong, LRCX right. I have totally bought into NVDA as a long-term holding as a company that is technologically transformative beyond what the vast majority of people understand.
    Financials – It’s not fun when Cdn banks are down during their seasonally strong period. They are being dragged down with US financials which is all tied to fears of economic slowdown due to Covid resurging globally. I am taking some pain on this one. The flip side is that tech growth stocks are doing well.

    From your perspective, has the recent Sate of Emergency affected life in Victoria or on the island generally? Just curious.

  5. Ron/BC Says:


    Well there was a ton of rain for sure. The highway from Victoria to Nanaimo was washed out and through some mountain ranges covered in rocks & trees & mud slides. But it is passable once again but will need months of rebuild. And the gasoline and food does come down from UpIsland so that meant shortages of food and gas. For the next 10 days vehicles are limited to 30 liters of gas per visit. And the food trucks have restocked many stores here again. Believe it or not many are still golfing on courses that are not soaked. So things are getting back to relative normal I guess. Perhaps this event will discourage Easterners to stop moving out here. A year ago there were 245 condos for sale up to $500K and now there is 23 only. And they are building condos faster than you could believe. I’ve been thinking of moving somewhere not so busy. Just don’t know where.

    Also I heard that more money has gone into the stock market in 2021 than in the last 10 years!!!!! You know what that suggests………………..Timberrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

  6. Paula Says:

    Ron B/C

    Thanks. Didn’t know food came from up island. Didn’t know how bad the hwy to Nanaimo got or about the gas rationing.
    Don’t blame you for wanting to move to a less busy place but you have done well with the big demand for condos in and around Victoria. Appreciate your perspective.

  7. Ron/bc Says:

    Much of the food and gas comes from up island as Nanaimo is the port for commercial delivery. No room for that in Victoria. But even normally Victoria gets a lot of rain even more than Vancouver.Not this summer though as 600 people died on the coast due to extreme heat thus summer. But I came from Saskatchewan as a kid and won’t live in snow all winter again. Don’t know where to go though.
