IFTA's Annual Conference

  1. Hey Folks:

    I haven't seen anything about this conference on this board so figured I'd post the info. It's being held in Chicago this year and price wise it's a lot less than prior years though still pricey ($1500.00 for 2 1/2 days).

    FYI - IFTA is a non-profit umbrella society of technical analysts societies from around the world. In the US, AAPTA is one of two societies that is a member of and represents IFTA. You need to have seven years of making a living using Technical Analysis to even be considered for AAPTA. So the bar is relatively high for membership. The conference, however, is open to everyone. So its one of those opportunities to rub elbows with some of the best analysts in the business if you can swing the fee.

    The line up of speakers for Chicago is a good (or great) group of technical analysts. Andrew Lo (head of MIT Laboratory for Financial Engineering), Ned Davis (If you're into technical analysis you have to hear this guy speak), Ian McAvity and Tony Plummer are a few of the 12 or so names on tap.
