Become a qualified Technical Analyst with the STA

Dear All, As you may know I have been a Member of the UK Society of Technical Analysts for over 10 years now. I was privileged to sit on the Board for over 6 years, working with some fine people to promote the use of Technical Analysts in this country and around the world, and I am also asked each year to speak on the Society’s Diploma Courses. Below are details of forthcoming courses being run by the STA. I would personally endorse these as the best courses money can buy on Technical Analysis (Please bear in mind they are courses on TA and not “Trading”, which is a much wider church).

***OFFER*** If you mention FuturesTechs when booking you can still get the “early bird” rate.

If you sign up for the “Diploma I” course I’ll see you on October 24th when I’ll be talking Candlesticks. If you book up the Diploma II course I’ll most likely be in front of you in March some time espousing the virtues of Market Profile (TBC!).




For the twentieth year and twenty first year running, the Society of Technical Analysts (STA) is holding its annual Diploma I and Diploma II courses so that complete newcomers and experienced professionals can gain the STA Diploma, the recognised and internationally accredited two-stage qualification in technical analysis.

The Diploma I course will commence on 17 October 2013 and run for 7 Thursday evenings.  The course prepares students for the Diploma I examination on 5 December 2013, a two hour, multiple choice exam and stage 1 of the Diploma qualification. The early booking discount rate of £995 is available to all FuturesTechs bookings, regardless of when they book, and includes the exam entrance fee, the 7 lectures and 12 months membership to the Society.

This course gives you a solid basic knowledge of Technical Analysis and prepares you, should you decide to progress to a recognised professional level, for the Diploma II course in technical analysis starting in January (details also attached).

Passing both the Diploma Level I and Level II exams entitles you to use the prestigious MSTA designation and place you amongst an elite group of Technical Analysts in the UK. Not only will you be better placed to trade and invest using Technical Analysis, you will also meet others on the course from some of the country’s top institutions.

Full details of the two courses’ content and the booking forms are attached. To reserve a place, please complete the enclosed application forms or register online via, remembering to quote FuturesTechs to qualify for the relevant discount.
