IFTA 2021 continues as a virtual conference for the second year
October 8 & 9, 2021
For 32 years the International Federation of Technical Analysts (IFTA) conferences have been local, in one country, hosted by one of our member Societies. In 2020, we adapted to extraordinary times with a virtual conference hosted by the Association of Technical Analysts in Germany (VTAD). More than 5,000 technical analysts attended.
In 2021, with international travel restricted for many of our members, our host society - the American Association of Professional Technical Analysts (AAPTA) - continues the virtual format with an exciting agenda shaped by the dynamic changes taking place throughout economies and financial markets worldwide.
The 34th annual IFTA conference takes place October 8-9, 2021 in a digital virtual space, offering exceptional exposure to the thoughts of well-known technical analysts and like-minded IFTA members, traders and investors. Themed TRADING PLACES, the 2021 IFTA Conference focuses on the international scope of today's financial markets and the application of technical analysis to global investing.
