He discussed why naked trading systems work, how traders can start trading naked and why naked traders have an advantage over traders who use indicator-based technical analysis.

David Pegler (Coach & Technical Analyst at FXBootcamp) walked the audience through the technical tools he uses to evaluate major low and high points of the market for the day, week and month. Pegler also introduced some common sense logic, such as time of day use, as well as a thorough understanding of human behavior.

The schedule was divided in different types of sessions: Key Note Speeches Live Trading and a Round table. And an important part of the event were also the social moments, including a welcome dinner on the Barcelona beach.
