There is no collective noun for a group of technical analysts. Let us decide what to call ourselves before anyone else decides something unflattering like: A Confusion of Technical Analysts.
Our language has some wonderful collective nouns for the various groups of animals. We are all be familiar with a…
A Herd of cows,
A Flock of chickens,
A School of fish
A Gaggle of geese, and
A Pride of lions.
But did you know:
A Murder of crows (as well as their cousins the rooks and ravens),
An Exaltation of doves
And, presumably because they look so wise: A Congress of owls, but…
Now consider a group of Baboons. They are the loudest, most dangerous, most obnoxious, most viciously aggressive and least intelligent of all primates …And what is the proper collective noun for a group of baboons? Believe it or not …A Parliament ! That explains a lot: The collective noun for Members of Parliament is the same as the collective noun for baboons.
What about us? Shall we claim A Wisdom of Technical Analysts? A Confidence of Technical Analysts?
Your suggestions and comments below please. Lets decide and lobby IFTA and the MTA to adopt it. After all we do not want to find ourselves a Coven of Technical Analysts
