The NZ Stanz website is , there is a links section to the
other TA professional  associations (IFTA) around the world on it, the
aussie site is particulalry good, they offer a diploma course through there
assocation linked to the asx securities diploma.

Yes, if you are an end of day trader you may find that works for you. The
Nasdaq and I am sure NYSE have software that shows the trading floor live
during trading, offering depth, volume and hot market section reactors, you
have probably been to both those sites, I was gob smacked at the
sophistication and information available on those sites about the markets,
particularly how trades actually worked which is quite different to NZ &

A site I quite like is as it has great US info and
also email alerts which you can setup so if a stock goes up or down while
you are aslep to a predetermined level you are sleeping you will get an
email that day advising you of the change. As I write this one has come into
my email folder.

Re books, I recomend a solid "base book" for "encyclopedic" information such
as Murphys "Technical analysis of the financial markets", he also has a web
site that offers a free trial period.

I hope this helps and good luck

Thanks for all that Morgy. Because I would only be 'end of day' trading do
still think that it would be beneficial to be awake when the market it open?

Free software I use...well bigcharts and
quite a fantastic service and pretty cheap (approx $20/month NZD).

Books I've been reading are Martin Pring's TA explained and Steven Nison's
Japanese candlestick charting techniques.

No I haven't joined the NZ TA society, any pointers on where I can find out

some info on what is involved for joining?

I suspect I will continue to be a beginner at this game for a couple of
to come. As Nison says in part 1 though, "Japanese proverb - even a
thousand-mile journey begins with the first step". :)
