The society organized a technical analysis course in September and October 2014, it was a huge success. 

There were 18 members attending the course, general feedback was very positive. Some of the testimonials are as follows:

  • “ hope to attend another one, if have.”,
  • “well organized material and practical approach”
  • “sincere, practical, can be trusted, understanding of the theory and practical measures”
  • “great course, one of the best I have attended, at least I can use the method taught”

The society followed several strict principles to organize technical analysis courses, they are listed as follows:

  1. Quality speaker, which we think is the key to a successful course. The ideal speaker should be equipped both with strong knowledge and practical trading experience.
  2. Genuine and robust course syllabus. Different from commercial courses, the course offered by the society is endorsed by the experts in the society, it is enriching in content, practical in technique, more relevant to trading.
  3. Reasonable fee structure. The purpose of the course is not for making money, but for education. As a result, the fee could be reduced to the minimum.

Lower risk with higher returns by substituting shares with call options

Speaker: Neil Godwin  

Date:  Oct. 23 (Wednesday)

Time: 7:00-9:00pm

Location: SCCCI exibition room, (near City Hall MRT)

Fee: $20 for public, TASS members free


About the talk

The presentation will clearly illustrate the simplicity of investing with Call options instead of shares. By selecting the stocks with the best fundamental statistics and by utilizing Neil’s strategies,  an investor can achieve returns normally only associated with highly speculative stocks but without the risk which would be associated with those highly speculative stocks.
Neil Godwin has invested with options since 1992 & is willing to draw on this depth of experience to answer any questions you may have at this meeting. No advice will be given but no ‘options’ questions will be out of bounds. Detailed comparisons, explanations & examples will be covered.
It is Neil’s opinion that a new bull market has already begun and anyone looking to benefit from it over the next few years should not miss this opportunity.
