July, 2011Dr. Julie Dahlquist, senior lecturer in finance at The University of Texas at San Antonio College of Business, has been named the editor of the Journal of Technical Analysis.
Technical analysis is a method used to make investment decisions based on the study of past market data, primarily price and volume data. Rooted in economic theory, technical analysts study the actions of the market in order to forecast the direction that the market will continue.
“I look forward to publishing the premier journal in the field and presenting research relevant to the theory, practice and application of technical analysis,” said Dahlquist, who is a certified Chartered Market Technician.
A frequent presenter at national and international conferences, she has co-authored two books: Technical Analysis: The Complete Resource for Financial Market Technicians and Technical Market Indicators: Analysis and Performance. The journal is published by the Market Technicians Association, the leading organization for technical analysis professionals and the governing body for the Chartered Market Technician designation.
