Marketing materials for use by
ATAA Chapters and others

There are a number of materials available to ATAA Chapter Councillors and others
to promote the ATAA.

The A5 flyers in the stand

The A5 Flyers

In April 2013 the ATAA is launching a series of four new A5-sized flyers to help promote some of the key features of ATAA membership.

They are designed to help existing members maximise the benefits of ATAA membership, and for use at Chapter meetings and Trading/Investing Expos to help promote the ATAA and our membership features.

The photo at right shows the set of four flyers sitting in a 4-tier brochure stand. Each ATAA Chapter needs to purchase one of these stands (and bill the ATAA for the expense), and keep it stocked with just a few flyers (available from the ATAA office in Sydney). They can be purchased from Officeworks for under $35. Note this is a 4-tier, A5-size, portrait configuration brochure stand (the one pictured is a Deflecto brand).

A4-size PDF versions of these documents will soon be available for you to download and/or print out for your own use.

The four topics currently covered in these flyers are as follows:

DVD Library - A description of how members can access the DVD Library, and borrow the DVD disks. The flip side of the flyer lists some of the available DVD titles. DVD Library - front DVD Library - flip side
Suggested Resources - Just a few sample book and DVD titles that are recommended reading / viewing for newbies, and intermediates. Suggested Resources - front Suggested Resources - flip side
Formal Education - Some introductory information about the formal eduation on offer - what it is, and how to get more details. Formal Education - front Formal Education - flip side
Popular Charting Tools 
& Data Providers
- A list on the front page of popular charting tools used by many of the ATAA members, with a list of some data providers on the flip side.

The ATAA has an official national marketing flyer (double-sided) - "Realise Your Market Edge", also referred to affectionately as "the Blue Flyer".

Presentation Slide sets

These materials are now a little dated, but in 2014 the ATAA updated a number of materials to help promote two things:
  1. The study of Technical Analysis (by explaining what it is), and 
  2. Membership of the ATAA organisation so that more investors and traders can benefit from being a member of this not-for-profit, independent, national association.
The materials below are sets of slides which can be displayed at ATAA Chapter meetings, or at the annual Trading & Investing Expos (which have not been running since 2015), or viewed personally. For information about which option to download, or how to view them, see the notes below. At the present time, these slides still use the old ATAA logo and need to be updated.

When downloading

  • Some of these download options are rather large and might take a few minutes to download.
  • When you download these materials, it is best to choose "Save File" and save the file to a location on your computer where you can find it again later. Or you can right-click on an option and choose "Save Link As..". The precise option for saving will depend on which browser software you are using (ie. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Chrome, etc.).

About Option 1 - the Zip file of JPEG slides

  • Using this set of slides is the easiest way to view these presentations.
  • The Zip file contains a number of Jpeg (picture) files. They are named to facilitate slide-show operation in the intended sequence.
  • Download the Zip file. 
  • Your Windows program (Windows Explorer) might be able to open the Zip file, otherwise you might need a Zip tool (eg. 7-zip, WinZip, PKZip) to extract the files and save them into one folder on your computer, or onto a USB memory stick.
  • It can be useful to save the set of Jpeg files in a new folder of their own. Both of the above slidesets can be saved into the one folder so that a slideshow viewer can "slide-show" through all of them in sequence.
  • To view the slideshow:
    • If you have one folder which contains only Jpeg files, you can use a free viewer program to view the files in an automatic SlideShow format.
      Eg. use the free IrfanView software tool to view and slide-show the set of slides.
    • You can display these Jpeg files from a USB memory stick using a computer monitor and an inexpensive Media Player device (eg. AC Ryan PlayOn media player about $120). No computer required.

About Option 2 - the PDF files

  • Download the desired PDF file(s) and save it on your computer or USB memory stick.
  • The PDF file will open into full-screen mode, ready for you to step through the set of slides manually.
  • The PDF file has security applied to disallow extraction of text and images; but will allow printing.

About Option 3 - the PPSX self-executing PowerPoint presentation files

  • Download the desired PPS file(s) and save it on your computer or USB memory stick.
  • The PPS file is a Microsoft PowerPoint slideshow format.
  • You might need Microsoft Office (PowerPoint) to view this, or the free alternative LibreOffice (or OpenOffice).

About Option 4 - the PPTX PowerPoint presentation files

  • The PowerPoint version is made available in case the other options don't work. 
  • Please refrain from makign unauthorised changes to the slides!
  • You might need Microsoft Office (PowerPoint) to view this, or the free alternative LibreOffice (or OpenOffice).
