Forty years experience as a trader and technical analyst. Until recently Thomson Reuters chief charting and technical analysis expert.
Glyn Bradney BSc ARCS AIB MSTA graduated from Imperial College, London, with an honours degree in Chemistry in the summer of 1968. Subsequently he has always worked in the financial markets sector in London. A trader in London for 20 years, over half of this as chief dealer, he joined (Thomson) Reuters in 1992 as a charting / technical analysis specialist, and continued in that role with a global responsibility until finally leaving the company and joining BETA Group at the end of January 2014.
Glyn recalls that his interest in charting/TA began in the early 1970’s when the IMM (Chicago – CME) opened and started to deal Spot FX futures. Late on in the London trading day they often moved markets substantially, often to the embarrassment of London/European Spot FX traders, what was going on? Enquiry showed that a large majority of IMM traders were using some technique called “Technical Analysis”, that’s how it all began! Glyn is a very long standing member of the UK Society of Technical Analysts, he was the technical director for some years during the 1990s. He’s also a member of the London chapter of the MTA. Glyn is a very active TA researcher, the great majority of the techniques he uses for market entry and exit / market timing he has devised himself, and he has lectured widely around the world on charting / TA.He is a leading expert on all the intricacies and advanced aspects of charting on Thomson Reuters Eikon and Metastock Pro.
