You wouldn’t think there’s a bear market if you visited the recent New York Traders Expo. Thousands of traders—and investors—gathered to swap ideas and find out what strategies the pros were using to rack up gains during this uncertain climate.

And they weren’t disappointed! Experienced traders flocked to intensive workshops on topics such as chart reading, set-ups, the psychology of trading, mastering the gap, and advanced trading tactics. But even newbies found plenty of sessions that gave them specific tips on subjects from Fibonacci numbers and pivots to trading index futures and currencies.

Panel discussions included an active trading session, forex strategies, trading managed accounts, and ideas for the “New Washington”—the session we have excerpted for you here, in Best of Show.

The exhibit hall was filled with traders sampling the latest trading platforms, forex tools, and classroom demonstrations of tried and true trading techniques.

Our MoneyShow.com studio was busy, with our interviewers gleaning the most up-to-date trading tips and strategies from some of the nation’s most expert traders. We’ve linked to a handful here, so that you can see and hear the latest advice from these pros.

We’ve also included a link to the most widely viewed Webcasts to give you a glimpse of the comprehensive content that traders took in onsite.

We hope you enjoy this taste of the New York Traders Expo, and don’t forget to keep checking in with MoneyShow.com. We will be posting additional interviews with top traders and additional Webcasts from the show over the next few weeks. You’re sure to find techniques and strategies that will help you not only to survive, but to prosper during these uncertain times.
