In This Issue
With this issue we have reached a minor milestone in our magazine size. Our third time out
Technical Analysis is exactly two times the original sample issue size. Starting with the May issue we
will be soliciting commercial advertising to help offset our publishing costs. The addition of this income
base will allow us to expand and improve the magazine format.
We are happy to introduce a number of new authors to our pages in this issue. Tim Slater of CompuTrac
and IntraDay Analyst gives us an update of the IntraDay Analyst software package. Curtis Arnold with
Martin D. Weiss Research offers a consolidation of two W. D. Gann trading tools in a charting method
we have titled simply "Gann". John Herrick in ''Cyclic Timing" shows us a graphic way of determining
underlying market cycles as well as a few examples using his Payoff Index. "Gold: Bull or Bear Market?"
by Jesse Thompson shows how to use a monthly swing chart to determine a market's major trend. These
are new writers for Technical Analysis and I'm sure you will agree that we hope to hear from them all
again. The information imparted in these writers' inaugural articles could go a long way toward initiating
a profitable trade or deferring market entry until the time is right.
