US equities have staged an impressive comeback from the March lows as they climbed their way out of bear market territory. The shift to decelerating Covid-19 cases has been the primary catalyst behind the recovery. However, the transition from rising to peak case counts did not come without economic pain, as the market recalibrated expectations to what we consider a worst-case scenario. Washington has reacted relatively quickly with unprecedented stimulus and a "Do whatever it takes" Federal Reserve policy response. The historic degree of stimulus, along with record-low interest rates, should provide valuation support as the market navigates around a turbulent earnings season. Based on this backdrop, Craig Johnson believes the pain trade has now flipped from down to up, as investors look ahead with optimism for reopening the US economy.

Charting and technical analysis, once denigrated by the majority of traders and investors, have become mainstream tools for those with a serious interest in analyzing and forecasting the financial markets. Yet, even today, most investors and traders do not realize the full potential of these powerful, and surprisingly accurate, tools.

Craig Johnson, senior technical analyst of Piper Sandler & Co. and former president of the CMT Association, will provide a technical tutorial session covering several important technical metrics. He will be joined by Ralph Acampora, head of technical and market analysis at Altaira, Ltd., known as the "Godfather of Technical Analysis," and one of the most respected technical analysts in the business. Together, they will share innovative ideas on how to harness the predictive power of technical analysis and show you how to use them to become a better trader.

Technical analysis is more than just looking for patterns on charts. Learn how to read charts, understand market indicators, incorporate intermarket analysis, and bring them all together to execute trades where the risk/reward opportunities are constantly in your favor. This is a session that you cannot afford to miss!
