"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.

We are pleased to confirm that Darryl Nagel is travelling from Australia specifically to speak to STANZ.

Darryl is a graduate of the University of Sydney, obtaining a B.A.(Psych). As a trader and investor since 1986, he soon became aware of the important place of the psychology of trading. In 1996 he gave his first presentation on this topic to the ATAA. The presentation was published in the July 1996 ATAA Newsletter. He has subsequently provided seminars and workshops on this important topic throughout Australia and overseas.

In his address, Darryl will explore the role of the theories of probability and language as the cause of our emotions, when trading and investing. We will also understand the role of our emotions and how we can use them to assist us on our journey to find the “holy grail”. The presentation will be interactive. You may be in for a surprise as to the unexpected consequences when exploring the concept of “probabilities”.

Join Darryl with his call for a revolution to change the language used in the financial industry. Such language in Darryl’s opinion, sabotages us each and very day.

Please RSVP to as soon as possible as spaces are limited
