"STANZ is a low cost way to learn how to trade shares, forex or even commodities and network with like minded people"

Andrew Gibbs - President

We welcome all traders and investors

STANZ is an incorporated non-profit society providing learning opportunities for individual traders and investors who wish to manage their own funds whether it be foreign exchange (forex), shares and CFDs (Contracts for Difference), futures and commodities. We believe technical analysis or a combination of technical and fundamental analysis can help traders and investors understand more about timing their trading and investment decisions.



Dinner meeting April 22nd - book now!

Our first dinner meeting will be held at the Northern Club on Wednesday April 22nd. There will be pre-dinner drinks from 7pm, then dinner at 7.30pm and a guest speaker at 8pm.

Cost will be just $59 for a two-course meal including drinks. There is no attendance fee!

E-mail: to book your seat.


Our speaker will be President Andrew Gibbs who will be talking on the subject of Systems Trading with Fundamental and Technical Analysis ahead of his invitation to address the ATAA annual conference in May.

Achieving consistency in trading is an elusive goal targeted by all traders and investors. Andrew will show that, by combining different types of strategies for both equities and futures markets, there is potential to improve overall trading consistency and performance. Using concepts taken from the funds management industry, this presentation will outline ideas on how to combine both fundamental and technical analysis into a systematic trading approach. The presentation will also cover what to do in crash years and will introduce short-term futures trading concepts that can be used to offset stock market losses in volatile periods.
