Letters To S&C by Technical Analysis, Inc.
In response to your editorial in the March issue of STOCKS & COMMODITIES, I would like to offer a
few comments and suggestions.
I enjoy your magazine very much, but I think it could be improved. I would like to see more articles
describing new or improved trading systems and indicators. The mathematics should be described in
cook-book fashion and an example given. This way everyone would understand exactly how to calculate
the indicator or system. A table should be included showing date and exact price when buy and sell
signals were given. The reader can then judge how profitable the system or indicator has been. Arrows on
a chart showing buy and sell signals can be deceiving. As a trader, I am interested in articles that will
teach me something new that I can use in my trading next week and hopefully make money with.
I would like to see less in the way of articles under the heading "Using Statistics," especially articles by
Frank Tarkany and Clifford Sherry. As a trader, these articles haven't helped me one bit. They are not
written by traders.
I enjoy reading the letters from your readers. Interviews and new product reviews also interest me. I think
the Liquidity Report on Stocks is a waste of space.
I hope you find these few comments and suggestions helpful and will use some of them in the future.
Keep up the good work.
