Technical Analysis in a Changing FX Market Structure: Time for a Radical Re-think?

As a statistical science it may be hard to argue that technical analysis needs a radical re-think, but the market structure in FX and fixed income markets is changing quite dramatically.

What are the changes, and what are the potential implications for those constructing and following the charts?


Colin Lambert is Managing Editor of Profit & Loss, a print and online publication that studies the impact of new trends and practices on the FX and OTC derivative markets – with a particular emphasis on e-FX. Formed in 1999, Profit & Loss has led the debate over the impact of the electronic channel on trading activities at banks, corporations and money managers.

Colin joined Profit & Loss in August 2001 as Deputy Editor, after a 21-year trading career in the foreign exchange industry. During this time he spent the majority of time trading spot FX before he moved into a proprietary trading role.

He finished his dealing career at British Petroleum.

During his trading years, he spent time working in London, New York, Singapore, Tokyo and Toronto and held several senior posts including that of Chief Dealer, FX and Deputy Treasurer.

Colin is an Honorary Member of ACI Australia and ACI UK – both affiliated to ACI – The Financial Markets Association, and is the author of “Once A Dealer – 50 years of ACI”, a history of the Association. He currently sits on the Board of Directors of ACI Australia.
