Technical Analysis for Institutional Investors is a publication established by the International Federation of Technical Analysts (IFTA). It is compiled by a committee of IFTA colleagues. Technical Analysis for Institutional Investors is an essential reading for academics, students, and practitioners of technical analysis in institutional portfolio management and trading. It contains a wealth of resource material and is an excellent reference for anyone interested in technical analysis.
Technical Analysis for Institutional Investors is the only international publication with original contributions from all continents covering developments in technical analysis in global markets. The publication reaches leading practitioners and students of technical analysis throughout the world.
Technical Analysis for Institutional Investors is a major professional resource. Its archival online publication on the IFTA website will make your original work available as a future resource to the worldwide community of technical analysts.
IFTA is seeking papers that cover developments impacting, either directly or indirectly, the field of technical analysis focusing on institutional portfolio management and trading; they may be drawn from such areas as:
- Market analysis techniques
- Global and intraglobal technical analysis
- Styles of technical analysis
- Commodities and energy trading
- Intermarket analysis
- Stocks/bond screening
- Dynamic asset allocation
- Strategies (i.e., sector rotations…)
We would especially like to see contributions that draw from areas not previously examined and/or topics tangential to technical analysis.
The above list is just a guide and should in no way be considered restrictive. We wish to make the publication open to new and innovative ideas from all areas of technical analysis and those that connect with it.
