Practicing Technical Analysis for Novices

Preface

06 December 2016 – This was the first course started ran by TerraSeeds Market Technician Pte Ltd when Binni Ong and I started the company back in 2005. The course ran from March 2006 until October 2010. It was a chart reading course conducted in a classroom setting with a maximum capacity of 40 participants. Classes were held on Saturdays because the target customer segment was working and investing adults. The course was well received when we started at a very affordable S$148 dollars only for a 9am – 6pm duration. It ran a total of 68 intakes. Course was positioned for beginners; learning illustrations were based on stocks listed on Singapore Exchange, looking at End-Of-Day data.

Binni and I have decided to make the course material for Practical Technical Analysis available online. Between 2006 – 2010, the material went through several minor revisions. I am putting the original 2006 copy online to contribute to chart reading knowhow.

The 2006 copy is 70 pages long from cover to cover. There is a 20 page pullout. This course was part of a ‘Paper and Pencil Series‘ of courses run without the use of computers/charting softwares. It was positioned as ‘paper and pencil’ because practices were done on paper and participants were required to bring their own ruler, eraser, pencil and different coloured pens.
