This past weekend I had the opportunity to attend the TSAA annual conference in San Francisco. TSAA, for those not familiar with it, is a technical analysis organization founded around 1970. One of TSAA’s founding members, the late Hank Pruden, was a professor at Golden Gate University and a remarkable teacher of technical analysis out on the west coast. It was a unique experience to attend the conference since Hank’s passing in 2018, and see the conference is still thriving and watching Hank’s legacy live on.
