The CSTA is pleased to announce Mr. Ray Hanson, who has not spoken publicly to the Society in over 10 years, will be the keynote speaker - The Secret Life of Spreadsheets.

Ray Hanson was born and raised in the United States, and for the past twenty years has increasingly called Toronto home.  He is a creature of contrasts and eclectic interests.  After completing a secondary education in the Liberal Arts, he took up the study of financial markets and the practice of investing.  Given his academic concentrations in Literature, Philosophy and Theology, Ray was naturally drawn to the study of Technical Analysis, a field he describes as both an art and a science.

In late 1974 he began his career on Wall Street and Bay Street with Paine Webber Jackson & Curtis in his native Providence, Rhode Island.  In 1980 Ray joined Dominion Securities, the predecessor company of RBC Capital Markets, in New York.  Throughout the eighties, he developed the firm's first research product dedicated specifically to U.S. markets.  In 1990, he relocated to Toronto to assume the role of Chief Technical Analyst.  Starting in 1991, Ray's work rose to the top of the Canadian Institutional rankings and cemented the reputation of Trend & Cycle as one of the most recognized product names in the Canadian marketplace.  

Ray is an avid student of market psychology, a long-time member of the Market Technicians Association, and the author of an original study of the phenomenon of long bases in stock prices entitled Non-Random Profits.  His noteworthy forecasts include: the peaking of the Tech bubble (The Last Byte, May 2000), the start of a generational or secular bear market in equities from the 2000 highs (The Year in Prospect, January 2001), and the beginning of the secular bull market in resources and gold (The Year in Prospect, January 2003).

Please join us for lunch and a presentation by such an accomplished forecaster and experienced speaker.

**$35.00 per member, $45.00 per non-member. 
***Registration to take place at 11:30 am. Lunch will be served at noon. Presentation will begin immediately following lunch.
