This year, it was once again a gruelling tough battle at the Citbank Forex Challenge. There were over 300+ teams, and only 48 made it to the finals. I am proud to announce that 4 of the 8 teams from my round that made it to the finals were from the SMU Investment Club, including the top 3. Nicholas and I topped the qualifiers again this year, unfortunately we did not fare well in the finals. However, it was some consolation that the 1st place was taken by a team comprising of my juniors from the investment club. As the research director and trainer, I am glad that the juniors I have trained under the Advanced TA training sessions have managed to perform so well this year.

Today, I was invited as a guest speaker to give a talk at 2009 AGM of STATS (Singapore Technical Analysts & Traders Society) on the “Strategic Outlook for 2010”. Before the talk, there was a poll, and it seemed that the general consensus is for a correction in the medium term. Here also some of the pictures taken from our slides.

After finishing my talk, I opened the floor to the public and numerous stock requests were shouted out. Due to time constraints, I only had time to do an on-the-spot analysis for a handful of stocks.


This event was held in SMU, and saw professionals and student flying in from all over the world to attend talks and networking sessions with a variety of renowed industry speakers.

After 3 days of talks and workshops, the event culminated in a memorable networking dinner and social drinking session in a professional setting. It was indeed a great opportunity to network with many industry professionals.
