The Golden Gate Bridge is the spectacular symbol for the 26th Annual IFTA Conference. The Golden Gate opens up, reaches out to financial practitioners from around the globe, and welcomes them to beautiful San Francisco. "The City by the Bay" warmly embraces the traditional and the innovative. A mere 30 miles from Silicon Valley, it represents the spirit of high-tech innovation, while having a rich tradition rooted in the Gold Rush Days of the 19th century. To the north are the magnificent wineries of the Napa Valley.
This backdrop is the setting for the Annual IFTA Conference for 2013. EVOLUTION TO MASTERY: Technical Analysis, Systems and Execution is the theme that will draw practitioners and professionals from all corners of the world. This year's program encompasses a thorough overview of the successful trade, analysis and idea generation, testing and validation, and execution. Industry experts will instruct delegates on the fundamentals and advanced concepts in these subjects, as well as present new and innovative strategies for navigating through the process. Legends of Technical Analysis will mix with delegates during social activities and evening events. The 26 member societies of IFTA in 25 countries are devoted to the EVOLUTION TO MASTERY of their membership.
