Navigating the GAP: Applying Technical Analysis to Modern Challenges

Thank you for planning to be a part of the 47th Annual CMT Symposium. While we were looking forward to seeing you in April, the conference will be postponed.
 
The coronavirus spread and response has been a rapidly changing situation. Following the World Health Organization’s declaration of a global pandemic and the US Government’s issuing an unprecedented international travel ban, combined with the requirements of NY State government and NYC officials moving to eliminate activities which would accelerate transmission of the coronavirus, there is no way to move ahead with our global conference this April 1-3, 2020.
 
The health and safety of our conference delegates, presenters, sponsors, and staff has been and will continue to be our top priority. The CMT Board of Directors and staff members met on Saturday, March 14th to debrief on all material changes in the containment efforts and to discuss alternatives to hosting our Annual Symposium. We are investigating options for Q3 and Q4 programming across multiple cities, virtual attendance and presentation, and simultaneously looking to confirm our 2021 dates in either March or April.

47th Annual Symposium

I highly recommend it. Two full days of education, information, and excellent networking; the different breakout events available to all attendees … I encourage everyone to attend next year.

Portfolio managers, traders, allocators, wealth managers, quantitative system developers, and research analysts – both buy-side or sell-side.
