The responsibility ahead, to ensure that cultural nuances of Asia are properly brought to the MTA leadership and to be able to carry the MTA's history into Asian professional minds is a big one. I look forward to excelling given this great opportunity to serve our profession.”
“I look forward to working closely with Mr. Kedia,” said Ralph Acampora, CMT, current At-Large MTA Board Director and MTA Past President. “His dedication to expanding the awareness of technical analysis around the world is very important to the growth of the MTA.”
“This is just another example of how much the demand for technical analysis information, and our CMT designation, is growing worldwide. The MTA has already seen a considerable increase in membership from the Asian Markets, and his upcoming addition to the MTA Board of Directors help to sustain this growth for many years to come,” said Mr. Tom Silveri, Executive Director of the MTA.
