In this latest episode of the AlphaMind podcast, Adam Sorab shares his views about how Technical Analysis can provide an entire framework for trading.

Adam talks about how technical analysis helps;

  • Improve traders timing of discretionary actions.

  • Forming the core underpinnings of systematic or quant-based approaches.

  • Enhancing fundamental trading activities.

  • Improves people’s risk management approach.

Adam has a long history in the financial markets industry and is one of the most informed and interesting people you will come across in the trading and investment world. He has held trading, investing and analysts’ roles at some of the world’s leading investment banks, asset management firms, and global hedge funds. Prior to that, and for over a decade, he was head of technical research and product specialist sales at the hedge fund giant CQS where he produced technical analysis-based investment research and strategy for their traders and portfolio managers. Adam was also president of the International Federation of Technical Analysts (IFTA), the global body which the STA is itself a constituent member of.

Adam brings a wealth of experience and insight that we are delighted and honoured to be able to share with our podcast audience, and which we are certain you will find informative, insightful and may challenge some of your long-held perspective and beliefs.
