6:00pm: Member Speaker: Robert Brain – Private Trader and educator

Topic: Special 15 minute Networking Session — getting to know your colleagues

ATAA members can benefit greatly by chatting with like-minded colleagues — if only you can work out which members to spend time talking with. You can build useful relationships, exchange experiences, learn from the mistakes of others and pick up some great tips for greater profits and smaller losses.


In this brief networking session we will quickly identify all of those members who are investing/ trading in shares, or in forex, or in options, or CFDs, etc. And we will identify the quant traders (who use computer modelling) versus the non-quant traders. Once we all know more about who trades what, we will be able to keep in touch and progress our skills and knowledge.


6:20 Break (and last minute dinner orders)


6.30pm: Guest Speaker: Gary Burton CFTe Senior Research Analyst

Topic: Simple Set ups for Powerful Trading Strategies

Following on from the very successful traders day in Melbourne on the 18th July, Gary will build on the pivot point and expanded range trading methodology, and how to use the strategy in any market any time frame. When building a trading plan, where do we "start"? Also included in this presentation is how to put together some simple trading set ups everyone can use in any market and any timeframe.

Gary contributes to Your Trading Edge and has been a regular guest on Sky Business program “Your Money, Your Call” as a technical analyst.
