Episode 30 - MicroCap Investing Using Technical Analysis with Kevin Shea, MicroCapClub Member/Private Investor

October 26, 2016

For this episode of Planet MicroCapPodcast, I spoke with Kevin Shea, Private Investor and Member of theMicroCapClub. I recently met Kevin at the MicroCapClub Leadership Summit inChicago. At lunch, with Kevin leading the discussion, we started talking about a topic that I basically knew nothing about: Technical Analysis. According to Investopedia,Technical Analysis is defined as, “a trading tool employed to evaluate securities and attempt to forecast their future movement by analyzing statistics gathered from trading activity, such as price movement and volume.” Think of Technical Analysis as the opposite of Fundamental Analysis, however, as you will hear, in MicroCap investing, one tool isn’t necessarily used without the other. The goal for this interview is to learn about Technical Analysis and how it can be applied as a tool in your MicroCap investing strategy.

October 19, 2016

This is a special podcast episode with my friend, Chris Lahiji, to discuss the upcoming conference, the LD Micro “Main Event”, taking place at the Luxe Hotel in Los Angeles, December 6-8. This is the 9th year of the “Main Event” and we at Stock News Now are proud to support the conference and look forward to another outstanding event. While I had him on the phone, I figured I’d also ask Chris his thoughts on what’s happening in the MicroCap stock market currently, and what to look out for at his December conference.
