I "completed" the Technical Analysis assignment yesterday afternoon and double spaced and printed it this morning (4,017 words - required word count 4,000), whacked staples through the charts with lines and markings, and pushed the whole package into a binder. Tomorrow I will purchase an Express envelope and mail it from St. Mary's Post Office. It should reach FINSIA in the city on Tuesday which is 5 days prior to "assignment due" date. I haven't reviewed it. I reviewed it as I wrote each answer. I have no doubt at all that it's less than perfect but then so am I. I believe I've illustrated a basic understanding of the subject (to Topic 6 at least).

I also downloaded the sample exam paper which they have just placed on line. There will be 10 multiple choice questions (April 4th) valued at 2 marks per question (20%), 5 questions requiring short written answers (10%) and 4 chart analysis questions worth 70%. This extends the requirements into consideration of indicators (momentum, MACD and such). I still have 3 topics to read up on but I have a basic grasp (very basic) of what they are after. The exam falls into the "possibly manageable" to "easy to fail" category - "best to know as much as possible as bluffing won't work".

The weather this evening is more congenial for which I am most grateful.

I will now do some toasted cheese and tomato sandwiches.
