Hi I am Balakrishnan, a retired engineer and been a very passive investor since 1984. As I had time after the retirement, I wanted to trade in equities and want to experience and continue in it. Another reason is that the trading profession has no retirement. I know trading requires different skills than of investment caliber. I also know that the skill of technical analysis is essential to survive in trading. I came across through web that Traders Cockpit is organizing 2 day Technical Analysis workshop at Chennai. As I am living in Chennai, I grab the opportunity to attend it. The workshop was very useful one. I have learned the foundations of technical analysis and learned how to read the candle sticks and how to select the time frame chart for analysis. I also learned the Elliot wave theory, Fibonacci retracements and extension and their usefulness in predicting. I also learned about different type of indicatores and their use in analysing stock. Risk and Money management techniques also understood. I have understood their very importance. I also learned how to use charts and screeners to screen and select a stock for trading. The workshop was very useful and I recoomend everyone who has interest in trading of any sort to attend the workshop.
