Join me in a new series of talks on the Art & Science of Trading

Over the next few months, I will be hosting a series of talks in which I will discuss each chapter of my first book, The Art and Science of Technical Analysis: Market Structure, Price Action, and Trading Strategies.

We are calling this set of talks Adam Grimes: the Hudson Sessions, as I will be doing them by the shore of the mighty Hudson River that starts up in the Adirondack Mountains, winds its way through New York state, and then joins the North Atlantic by the glittering isle of Manhattan. Trading lore and literature is full of nautical references—for good reason!

We will hold some sessions on the weekends (around noon EDT), and others in the evenings on weeknights. Expect a session roughly every other week, and we will refine the calendar as we go along. I know that not everyone will be able to attend the live sessions. They will be available on replay eventually, but we are still deciding the release date. (We might wait until the project is finished, or we might release them a session behind.)

These sessions will be substantial—I’m not following an exact outline, but I would expect each session to run between two and three hours (or maybe more). Each session will target a specific chapter from the book, in order. I plan to:

  • Discuss the content of each chapter of the book, but please read it first! This will be an expansion, rather than a rehash of what you’ve already read.
  • Do some Q&A on the specific topics. Questions can be submitted in advance, and we will do our best to handle questions from the live sessions (which might be difficult with a large attendance).
  • Critically, I will talk about areas where my thinking has changed or evolved, and about practical issues with implementing the ideas in the book. In other words, I’ll share what I’ve learned in a decade of applied trading since writing the book.
  • Some of these sessions will be right on target, but some may roam pretty far afield. Again, I’ll share my thinking about what someone needs to be successful and to stay on the top of this difficult game for many years.

The first session will be Saturday, 6 May at 13:00 EDT. [note date and time change! Our initial announcement was for the following day.] To get the most out of the event, please read the Forward, Preface, and Chapter 1 of the book before the session.

If you want to submit a question in advance, please send it to with the subject line [Question for live session]. I can’t promise we will get to every question, but I can promise that every question will be read and considered.

So please join me for The Hudson Sessions. I’m excited about this project. I would encourage you to make a commitment. Use this time to renew your focus and passion for the craft of trading, and to grow toward being the best trader you can be.
