In this episode we take a deep dive into technical analysis with Andrew Thrasher, founder of Thrasher Analytics and portfolio manager at the Financial Enhancement Group. We look at the major tools that technicians use and the methods they utilize to apply them. We go through a real world example using the S&P 500 to see how these tools are put into practice. We also cover his excellent paper “Forecasting Volatility Tsunamis” and discuss the conditions that he found were typically present prior to significant spikes in market volatility.
We hope you enjoy the discussion.
