Dow Award, currently carries a prize of $5,000.00, and is the most significant competition for recognition in the field of technical analysis.
“Congratulations to Dr. Dahlquist and Dr. Bauer for bringing new thought and rigorous analysis to the existing body of knowledge regarding gap theory,” said Martin J. Meaney, CMT, and the MTA’s Dow Award Committee Chair. “Their stature in the academic community broadens the scope of technical analysis as a valuable tool in seeking alpha in the marketplace.”
“We are truly honored to be chosen as the 2011 recipients of the Charles H. Dow Award. What a privilege it is to follow such a list of distinguished and well-respected award winners,” said Dr. Dahlquist and Dr. Bauer. “We have greatly benefitted from the work of those who have gone before us and from our association with the MTA. It is our wish to give back to this community that has meant so much to us. We hope that our research expands the body of knowledge of technical analysis and is of use to others in the field. We look forward to connecting with long-time friends and meeting more MTA members at this year’s MTA Annual Symposium.”
The Market Technicians Association’s objective is to educate the investment community and MTA members in technical analysis.

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).
