Tribute to Dawn Bolton-Smith 

A Tribute to Dawn Bolton-Smith led by David Hunt and Chris White


Chris White and David Hunt will lead an interactive tribute to Dawn, examining her techniques and sharing stories about her life in finance.

Chris White has been involved with Technical Analysis for many years and for the last 20 years was mentored by Dawn Bolton-Smith. Chris was very kind to Dawn, particularly over the last few years, acting as a carer for her in the closing stages of her life.

David Hunt also had a very close professional and personal relationship with Dawn. Their friendship began in 1990 with the founding of Australia's first Technical Analysts' Association. Over the last 27 years, David learned much from Dawn. He will co-lead the presentation with stories about Dawn and will examine some of the techniques she employed in Technical Analysis.

David is a Chartist with an Economics and Finance background with an intense interest in long term market cycles. He is the owner of and is the chief Profit Hunter. He is a regular presenter on Sky Business' Your Money Your Call and an active presenter at the Australian Professional Technical Analysts Inc and the Australian Technical Analysts Association. He analyses & gives advice on all World Markets & Shares to ProfitHunter Group Members in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, USA, Hong Kong, Europe and Asia. David’s views are often contrary to the general opinions voiced across the media, regarding the direction of the major Markets & Shares. His success and defined opinions are highly regarded by the professionals in the industry.

Dawn Bolton-Smith was a legendary Technical Analyst with more than 50 years of experience.

After training as an accountant, in 1962 Dawn enrolled in a Technical Analysis course at the Mosman Evening College in Sydney. Her lecturer was the late Ian Notley, who later became a leading market analyst with offices in all of the major global financial centres.

Inspired by Notley’s teachings and the text book, Technical Analysis of Stock Trends by Edwards and Magee, she became the first Technical Analyst to be employed in the Australian stock market. Around this time Dawn enjoyed an experience of a lifetime: perhaps the greatest boom and bust in the history of the Australian resources sector, with stocks like the notable nickel miner Poseidon, rising from 80 cents to $280 within the space of six months prior to a rapid demise.

Over the years, Dawn achieved a reputation for her accurate market calls. In 1973 she predicted the 1974 share market crash to within four points of the bottom.

Dawn had a great passion for Technical Analysis and was always ready to share her vast knowledge with fellow practitioners. For many years, she wrote a column for The Sunday Telegraph newspaper in Sydney and was the first chartist for The Bulletin magazine. From 1976 to 1978 she was the editor of the trading newsletter called Trendex. Dawn told many a tale of her experiences in the financial services industry including an episode when she sold gold futures at US$840 before they opened the next day down US$220.

Over a long and prestigious career, she gave many presentations throughout Australia to beginners and seasoned professionals alike. She was a founding member and Vice President of Australia’s first Technical Analysis Association and was honoured with Life Member status of that organisation.

The Management Committee of the Australian Professional Technical Analysts (APTA) and APTA members, greatly respected Dawn as a person, as well as her career in Technical Analysis and, were honoured that Dawn had elected to become a member of our association.

Dawn will be sadly missed.

May her soul rest in peace.
