New York, NY (Vocus/PRWEB) April 12, 2011
The Market Technicians Association, Inc., the leading global organization for technical analysis professionals and the governing body for the Chartered Market Technician(CMT) designation, has eclipsed the 4,000 active member benchmark!
The MTA continues to see significant growth, not only in overall membership, but in the number of individuals signing up to sit for the exam and in total number of active CMTs, now over 1,100. Over the last 4 years the MTA has seen a compound annual growth rate of active members in excess of 15%. MTA members are located throughout the world in over 75 countries.
"The MTA is proud to announce that we have surpassed the 4,000 membership mark. Even more important and exciting is the diversity of our membership, with approximately 60% of new members coming from non-US markets,” said Thomas Silveri, Executive Director of the MTA. “This demonstrates the increasing recognition and acceptance of not only the MTA and our CMT designation, but also Technical Analysis as a practice. We are pleased with this benchmark accomplishment, and have our goals set on continuing to provide the best member services available in the field of Technical Analysis and growing our worldwide membership.”
Silveri went on to say, “Individuals join the MTA because there is no organization worldwide that offers its membership more member services and value. In addition, the CMT program offers a structured approach to study technical analysis, and once completed, demonstrates that you are a professional in the field of technical analysis. The CMT can also help to open doors that may lead to job opportunities, and is the world’s most recognized professional designation for technical analysis.”
“The MTA has seen significant growth in recent years, and this lends to the credibility of technical analysis,” said David Keller, CMT, President of the MTA. “The MTA has worked hard to establish itself as the leading global organization for technical analysis professionals, and the constant growth of membership and the CMT around the world demonstrates that. We look forward to the continued growth of our association and the CMT designation.”
The Market Technicians Association’s objective is to educate the investment community and MTA members in technical analysis. More than 4,000 analysts and related market professionals in over 75 countries are members of the MTA. The MTA is responsible for the creation, oversight, administration and regulation of the CMT designation. The CMT is the only technical analysis designation recognized by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). It is also the only designation for technical analysts that qualifies as a “Series 86” exemption upon passing levels 1 and 2 of the CMT exam.
