Using Technical Analysis in Today’s Market and Tomorrow’s

The Interview ·
Featuring Louise Yamada

Published on: May 31st, 2019 • Duration: 34 minutes

Technical analysis has evolved. In this follow-up to the history of technical analysis with Ralph Acampora and Alan Shaw, Louise Yamada, managing director at LY Advisors, and Katie Stockton, founder and managing partner at Fairlead Strategies, look at the present and the future of the discipline. They reveal a world in which technical analysis is still important, but where the decrease in market-making liquidity and the increase in algorithmic and high-frequency trading has made profiting trickier. The two also discuss what technical indicators are telling them about markets right now and the future of independent technical research. Filmed on May 10, 2019 in New York.

    Amazing interview from two real ladies. However it would be nice to show some of the technical charts they are talking about for (S&P 500, in 2000s and 2007-2008) with the indicators, ex. RSI, Volume tops etc. Just an idea. Thank you!

    Might consider re-doing this interview. I would like to hear more in-depth responses. These very qualified ladies just talked superficially and never established just who was the interviewer and who was the interviewee. This is an important and useful topic, please re-visit with focus!

    Super exchange with a true legend, thank u. Just wish it'd been a full hour! Since this was recorded 3 weeks ago, it appears that her weekly indicators for SPX and NDX have rolled over negative to join the dailies. It would've been great to hear her outlook on DXY too, which appears might be in the process of making a bear recovery top here near a key fib pt, far below its previous high less than 2.5 years ago. I mean it's interesting how the dollar has failed to breakout even while stocks have been tumbling globally for a month. And gold is up only $25 during that period, while bitcoin is up thousands!

      Update - gold up $55 now. And as for USD, stick a fork in it, it's done! (maybe one last small gasp higher in its C-wave before the dollar collapses to new lows in its coming impulse down).

    Loved this Video as I’ve been a fan of both these Women for a long time. I very much enjoyed the back and forth between the two of them even though it was sort of labeled as a “Guest” type of interview. The back and forth was especially effective as it subtlety juxtaposed a 20-30 year generational familiarity with Technical analysis. It was interesting to hear of the merger these days of the Technical analysis with the Quantitive—what they both seemed to hint at was although they both use the Quant in their Technical analysis they believe the TA is more of an Art rather than just formulas. Hat tip to Justine for both the Curation of this Video as well as the excellent Production—I thought I saw Justine’s hand displayed throughout with both the wonderful pacing of the back and forth as well as the subject matter covered. Excellent work, IMO.

    great conversation...showing respect to a profession that sometimes does not get a lot of credit because some technicians want to over complicate it. These ladies are elegant and super smart...the simpler the smarter! As some people had say this is the type of interviews why I come to RV everyday.

    Excellent. What a pleasure to listen to two experts who are constantly trying to understand the market through technical analysis of price action with integrity and respect. In addition, they are looking at reasons how price action is being affected by other market forces. This is rare. Thank you. DLS

    Very nice talk -- the point related to traditional commodities vs 'silicon valley' commodities is noteworthy. I agree re: optimism being concentrated in smallcap tech -- and it's hard for me to avoid feeling similarly optimistic as both a software developer, and as a noticer of companies-that-deliver-value-with-good-margins-and-tolerable-leverage... :) That said, the high valuations of SAAS scare me, as do the low valuations of oil. I can't wait to see how this plays out over the next 2y

    Better than charts or fundamentals would be foreknowledge of president Trump's tweets. Even I could short the market on today's Mexico tariff tweet. DLS

    Why has the Kyle Bass interviewed scheduled to be on today delayed again? Its been scheduled to be on for the past 2 Fridays?
    • DR
      David R.
      31 May 2019 @ 13:26
      Maybe because LY was already 3 Fridays behind (filmed May 10). Besides, LY has a much longer and waaay better track record than Bass, who's often wrong especially in recent years.

      Market may not be cooperating with the thrust of the conversation or could be a compliance issue.

    Thanks for bring this interview to us. It's funny as I use RV to fill in the fundamental macro view to tie in with the technicals I see. And Katie, a DWA subscriber since the late 90s so I might have seen you on an intern video lol. My son is currently at Indiana-Bloomington and I'm trying so hard to sway him from fundamentals towards technicals. It's hard to persuade him that charting is the way. Anyway, hope to see both of you in future videos and would like to see more in depth. Maybe bring Ralph A . in as well. Best of Luck.

    Great show - I have always admired Louise, she is so intelligent and yet so humble. She also has some great insights into the markets based on technical analysis. It definitely pays to listen to her thoughts.
