StockTalk is a Stockhead video series featuring a roundtable of experts discussing a new investment topic each week. In this edition, host Dr Nigel Finch discusses the booming ASX small caps sector.

In the expert hot-seat this week is Craig Scheef, founder and managing director of Technical Investing.

Craig boasts over 30 years experience working with and analysing public companies, including over 20 years directly managing portfolios. Craig has also been a consultant to some of Australia’s largest investment funds as a technical analyst.

Striving to enhance and improve his repertoire of investment techniques, Craig has undertaken extensive research and trading using methodologies based on human nature and the pattern of share price movements over time (technical analysis).

Craig’s open-minded approach and methodology have enabled him to identify significant themes and trends before the majority of investors move in.

This resulted in identifying technology, the Internet and security as substantial investment opportunities in the late 1990s. Since Technical Investing was established in 2006 this approach has continued to identify new and important themes and trends.

Craig and Nigel discuss a range of topics, including the drivers behind the small cap investment boom, how retail investors should approach investing in volatile sectors and stocks, if we’re entering a “Roaring 20s” 2.0, long term trends in commodities sector and much more.
