June 2018 Meeting

Thursday, June 7th at 7:30 PM

The Ring House
1801 East Jefferson Street
Rockville, MD 20852

Presentation Speaker Part One:

Sondra Katz, SMT Treasurer

Topic Part One:

Finding Patterns with Patternz

Join us for our June meeting were we will have two presentations: Sondra Katz will demonstrate Patternz, a free program from Thomas Bulkowski.  This desktop application can find 65 chart patterns and 105 candlestick patterns in stocks and displays them on a chart or lists them in a table which can then be downloaded into an Excel spreadsheet.  The program will also find Fibonacci retracements and extensions.  The program will correct data for splits and will show those splits and dividends.  This is not a predicative program but can help you learn patterns and how often they occur whether for one stock or many.

 Presentation Speaker Part Two:

John T. Nelson, SMT Vice President

 Topic Part Two:

Pattern Matching in AmiBroker

John will follow-up with a second-half presentation: “Pattern matching in AMIBroker.” AMIBroker incorporates a very powerful programming language called AFL that allows for complex pattern matching such as Candlesticks, Heikin Ashi Bars and others.
