Welcome to the IFTA 2016 Conference

The annual IFTA conference for 2016 will be hosted by the Australian Technical Analysts Association (ATAA) in Sydney, Australia, from Friday 21 – Sunday 23 October 2016 at Primus Hotel, Sydney.

The IFTA Annual Conference is the leading annual event for all Technical Analysts from around the world. Finance Sector Senior Managers, Fund Managers, Asset Allocators and Financial Planners will find it invaluable in their professional work. Experienced private financial market traders and investors will gain new insights into sophisticated strategies. Less experienced traders and investors will have the opportunity to mix with and learn from leaders in the field and greatly expand their breadth of understanding.

The theme of this year’s conference is “From Theory to Profitability: achieving better returns through technical analysis” – Technical Analysts are evidence based decision makers and can demonstrate the effectiveness of their theories by being profitable.

Accordingly, there will be an emphasis on practical and demonstrable outcomes from tools, processes and techniques used by successful traders and investors.

Whilst technical analysis covers a broad range of theories and techniques, it can be difficult for traders and investors to discern those that are nice to know, from those which can be shown to have real profit-making potential. The conference theme will focus on what works for successful traders.

The annual IFTA conference will be in Australia for the first time in many years, and will provide a unique opportunity for both professional and non-professional practitioners (and sponsors) to see, hear, and meet with acknowledged cutting-edge speakers, and to network with each other. The IFTA conference brings together like-minded individuals from across the world, particularly from the IFTA-affiliated member societies in 24 countries.

Sydney is one of the most exciting cities in Australia, with one of the most beautiful natural harbours in the world – the ATAA and Sydney are proud to host this year’s IFTA Conference. This is going to be a conference that you can’t afford to miss – we look forward to seeing you in Sydney.
