Tenth Anniversary Meeting
for both the IBD Meetup and the Boston Investors Group! Please bring food - main dishes, sandwiches, veggies, munchies desserts, drinks, cups, plates or ice! You may bring wine if you like. We will use the first hour of the meeting to celebrate the tenth anniversary. We will eat in the lounge area outside Room 315. Use the time to network, pick the brains of your fellow traders and introduce yourself to some of the members you haven't yet met. Please fill out a name tag and wear it. For the "serious" part of the meeting, we will have a Market Talk by Basil Chapman.
A Plea for Donations -
Before 2012, IBD's sponsorship of the IBD Meetup group paid the Meetup dues for the Boston Investors Group as well. Since then, I have been paying them. It amounts to about $15/month. I will be taking up a collection - passing the hat as it were - at our anniversary meeting. I will use the proceeds to reimburse myself for past dues and to pay future dues to Meetup.com. If you have been coming to meetings and learning something from them, please donate. You can give by cash or check - or you can click on the link on the left side of this website and give by credit card or paypal. Thank you for your generosity.
Market Talk by Basil Chapman
Basil is one of our most popular speakers. He will give us his inimitable analysis on the current market using his Chapman Wave technical analysis. He will also analyze some stocks of your choosing. Here is a bio I found over on TFNN.com where he has an online radio show every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 11AM to Noon:
As Editor of The Chapman Marketline and Trendswatch since 1984, Basil Chapman’s service has been used by Fidelity’s Technical Department, hedge funds, banks, money managers, and individual clients. Often quoted in Barron’s MarketWatch section, as well as winning TheStreet.com’s“timing“ competition, where his analysis has often been referenced, Basil has a history of significant market-trend calls.
While hand drawing charts from the late 1970s into the 1980s, he noticed that prices under most circumstances virtually always had a certain number of legs to the upside before declining sharply. Later he found that computer software, which included the standard market technical indicators, enhanced the degree of accuracy in calling price turns. As well as market trend calls.
Thus was born the ChapmanWave Up/Down Sequence.
If you have a friend you talk stocks with, bring them with you! Food or drinks are not allowed in any MIT meeting room. We strongly urge each person to make his or her own decisions about investing their money. Investment ideas and recommendations made during our meetings and in our online dialogs bear no liability by anyone. This is a free and open meeting. No membership is required, but please RSVP.
