Martin J. Pring:
Martin J. Pring entered the financial markets
in 1969 and has grown to become a leader in the global investment
community. In 1981, he founded the International Institute for Economic
Research, and began providing research for financial institutions
and individual investors around the world. Since 1984, he has published
a monthly market review offering a long-term synopsis of the world's
major financial markets. Demanded as a speaker worldwide, he is
the author of several outstanding books including, Introduction
to Technical Analysis, Martin Pring on Market Momentum, and Technical
Analysis Explained, now in its third edition. Since this unique
book first appeared in 1979, Technical Analysis Explained has established
itself as the number one guide of its kind. It is used by several
international technical societies for training and is one of the
three main books for Level 1 CMT certification for the Market Technicians
Association. Translated into over 10 languages, the book is, as
quoted in Forbes, "widely regarded as the standard work for this
generation of chartists". According to Futures Magazine "it is one
of the best books on technical analysis to come out since Edwards
& Magee's classic text in 1948.belongs on the shelf of every serious
trader and technical analyst." It has since become the text on which
other works in the field have been based. Described by Barron's
as a "technician's technician", Martin's articles have been featured
in Barron's, and he has been quoted in The Wall St. Journal, International
Herald Tribune, The New York Post and Los Angeles Times newspapers
and the National Review. He is currently writing a monthly educational
column on the basics of technical analysis for Stocks and Commodities
Magazine. Over the past 31 years, his research has led to the development
of reliable financial and economic indicators for timely and effective
forecasting. Martin's personal Barometers for the Bond, Stock and
Commodity markets have identified major turning points since the
1950's on a timely basis and have outperformed the buy/hold approach
by a wide margin.
Martin pioneered the introduction of videos
as an educational tool for technical analysis in 1987, and was the
first to introduce educational, interactive CD's in this field.
His latest releases include Technician's Guide to Day Trading, the
Introduction to Technical Analysis, an 8-hr CD-ROM/ book course
for the beginning to intermediate technician, and Breaking the Black
Box, a no-nonsense guide to creating and testing mechanical trading
systems. He is currently working on the CD-ROM version of Market
Momentum, a book referred to by many as the source for information
on this subject.
For many years, Martin's primary interest
has been educating students of technical analysis in the basic and
finer points of this art. He enjoys mentoring students of technical
analysis from the college level to professionals already in the
field, sharing the wealth of knowledge he has gained through his
own experience and research. In this regard, he has spoken on technical
analysis to the Darden Business School, Golden Gate University,
and University of Richmond, VA.
Bill Beaman: "I have been in the securities
business for 28 years, a student of technical analysis for 25 years
and have been attending seminars during that time. This is the first
seminar that totally met my expectations! Any investor or trader
that doesn't seriously consider Martin Pring's seminar is making
a mistake. Attendance at one of his seminars can greatly improve
your bottom line."
Dave Jadia: "Overall, one of the best
seminars on a very complex software and the subject of technical
analysis. Martin made it very easy to combine the two & apply it
to trading. Class exercises were very "real" and will help in learning,
earning, retaining, and loss minimalization. Learning with Martin
was 'an experience'."
Vincent Aitro: "Ingenious application
of indicators elucidate both the art and science of trading."
Ron Rossway: "For the money, this
seminar is a "no brainer" for anyone interested in taking full responsibility
for their investments."
Michael Seigel: "I hope to now take
on less poor trades."
John Carter: "Great course - very
down to earth & practical. And Fun!"

Seminar Outline - Day 2 Part II (4 hours)
This course consists of four one-hour modules
(I can vary the timing) which are designed to offer an-depth look
into the integrative approach, and, real-life experiences, of Dr.
David A. Bradley in the stock market.
"Watching Out for those Dangerous
U.M.E.S!" (Unruly Market Emotions)
In this section Dr. Bradley
will offer some poignant close-to-home observations which he says
affects even some of the most experienced traders and Wall Street
Money Managers during market swings. (Please note: this will not
be a "course in psychology" but will cite some very relevant observations
that can help the individual trader avoid some of the pitfalls of
a volatile market.)
"Follow the Big Money"
In this section Dr. Bradley
will cover one of his most popular topics...that of how to follow
"big money". He will teach you how to become a "Triple - A - Thinker"
by guiding you through choosing stocks in the strongest sectors,
selecting the strongest stocks in that particular sector, and then
rating that specific stock for "big money flow" (often noted to
be of one of the most important single criteria for choosing stocks
that are likely to be "true risers.") Other appropriate technical
indicators will also be utilized and compared.
"Investing in the 'new blues'
- New Economy Stocks"
In this section, Dr. Bradley will cover some
of the essential points that you should check-through when deciding
on whether or not to enter any of the new technology arena stocks.
Emphasis will be "fundamental screening" and then on techincal analysis.
During the past year this method his proved remarkeably successful
in sorting out the "new blues" from the "fakers." Important market
sub-sectors will also be discussed.
"A few Words on the Pros and
Cons of Covered Calls, Bull Put Spreads, & Options."
In this section, Dr. Bradley
will offer a wealth of personal experiences about the advantages
and disadvantages of using the above-noted option strategies. Most
courses quickly teach the "setting up" of each strategies' play,
but often do not tell you what to do should your play "go opposite
or south." Topics such as options pricing and volatility, and, market-maker
manipulation will be covered. This section will also allow time
for a question and answer period.
Dr. David A. Bradley, a clinical
psychologist by formal training (U. of Chicago), began his stock
work many years ago, first as an individual trader for himself and
then as a money manager for other professionals and clients. He
worked as an instructor in Wade Cook Financial Seminars, but left
after he realized that the information being taught appearred to
convey only very general facts and did not cover the finer points
of choosing stocks and using the most appropriate strategies.
David formed his own seminar
company - Blue Chip Cash Flow - and authored a popular website:
Dr. Bradley believes that the best approach to the market is an
active integrative approach which considers the essential points
he saw being used by the most senior money managers on Wall Street.
He believes that there is a serious need to teach people to integrate
an understanding of market mood, consumer reactions, fundamentals,
sector trends, "money flows", and proper technical analysis. David
insists that the best software investment is that of "to your head...your
brain...", noting that there is no one "magic bullet" or one "magic
key" to understanding the market...but rather, that it is an organized
thought process combined with valid techniques and strategies that
make for financial success.
Dr. Dave - Of all the approaches
we have seen to stock-picking we like your ideas of how to "follow
the big money" the best. Your workshop to us and our friends was
unique and did not just "blah blah" about technicals and the like.
You led us right through the whole thinking and doing process. It
got Peg and myself and our group to really understand how money
managers THINK when they choose stocks - no doubt a result of your
U. of Chicago training! *Peg & Chuck Wolph, Evansville, Indiana
Dr. Bradley - After taking your
workshop on BlueChipCashFlow it certainly clarified a lot of the
things that the Wade Cook teachers did NOT tell us about! I especially
found helpful the section on not using too volatile stocks for covered
calls, sticking to stocks with better supports, and not using full
margin when buying stocks. I now play only the blue chip quality
stocks for covered calls...and can finally sleep at night. *Jane
Cacchilo, Daytona, Florida
David - I have taken most of
the Wade Cook courses, and, quite honestly, wish that I had taken
your Blue Chip course years ago. It could have saved me a lot of
money and frustration. Your careful method of integrating data from
many sources certainly has proven to be a much safer way to invest
in today's market. You teach it like you have been a money manager
all your life. I also liked the helpful memory tools you used like
"be a triple-A thinker" and be a "C.A.P.E.D. Crusader." Thank you
once again. *Dr. Leo Tasvares, Tampa, Florida
