Free Technical Analysis Seminars (by ChartNexus and StarOnline)

In collaboration with ChartNexus and The Star Online, two beginners seminars on technical analaysis will be held on 10 November and 24 November 2007 at Menara Star. This is basically a two part (yet can stand on its own) seminar which Part I is about Fibonacci retracements and Part II is about candlestick charts and MACD. The admission of both events were free of charge but requires registration as seats were limited.

Justin Tan, who is the chief trainer and market strategist of ChartNexus, will be the speaker for both events and will guide you through in using these two technical analysis tools in evaluating the current trends of a particular stock in an easy to understand manner. The seminar will also feature case study which will strengthen your understanding of the concepts and how to use these tools.

Having personally attended these two seminars being held in October, I strongly recommend these events to everyone (there's even veterans attending when I was there). Especially for beginners who wanted to learn and know a bit on technical analysis, this serves as a good introduction on the topic.

For those interested, go ahead and register NOW as seats are limited and will be snapped out very fast (based on personal experience).

Malaysia Financial Exhibition 2007 (MYFex 2007)

Perbadanan Insurans Deposit Malaysia (PIDM) is currently organizing the Malaysia Financial Exhibition 2007 (MYFex 2007) at Mid Valley Exhibition Centre, Hall 3 starting from today (30 October) to 4 November. The exhibition itself advertised itself as a one-stop centre to

create financial awareness among the public. It's a one-stop information center for anyone to get answers to their financial inquiries and also update themselves on how to improve their personal finance.

Out of curiousity I have attended the event today and it seemed that the main focus of the exhibition is the "financing" part of personal finance: at least that's my sight-seeing evaluation of noticing most brochures being laid out were about loans of some form. For one thing, judging from the exhibitor list which were mostly banks, I'm not surprised. But the target group doesn't seemed to be aimed at working individuals but also budding entrepreneurs and SME holders. There's no booths that was focused on investments (read: unit trust) and insurance products, but there is one booth that answers taxation inquiries set up by the Inland Revenue Board and another booth on certified finance planners.

So for those who have inquiries regarding financing needs, this is a good exhibition for you to shop around and ask questions. After all, having all major Malaysian banks representatives being gathered in one hall, that certainly make gathering information easier, isn't it? :)

As a recap, here's the event details:

Venue: Mid Valley Exhibition Centre, Hall 3 (Centre court, top floor)
