John’s workshop shows how relatively simple charting concepts like trend lines and support and resistance levels can be used to great advantage. The main focus of the workshop is to show how simple charting principles, combined with some intermarket ideas, can be applied to stock market sectors and mutual fund selection. This is the subject of his latest book, "The Visual Investor".
John Murphy, CNBC-TV’s technical analyst for many years, wrote the book many technicians consider the core of their technical analysis library, Technical Analysis of the Futures Markets (Prentice Hall, 1986). Along with his daily broadcasts discussing the financial markets, John also heads his own consulting firm—JJM Technical Advisors, Inc. John founded JJM Technical Advisors in 1981 after serving for a number of years as director of commodity technical analysis and senior managed account trading advisor with Merrill Lynch. He is a past director and director emeritus of the MTA. John wrote Intermarket Technical Analysis (Wiley & Sons, 1991) and The Visual Investor (Wiley & Sons, 1996). John received the very first award given for Contribution to Global Technical Analysis, presented at the International Federation of Technical Analysts’ fifth World Conference in 1992
