The AssociationAbout the Association

The CMT Association is a global credentialing body with nearly 50 years of service to the financial industry. The Chartered Market Technician® (CMT) designation marks the highest education within the discipline and is the preeminent designation for practitioners of technical analysis worldwide. Our market philosophy is grounded in behavioral economics and extends beyond classical pattern recognition techniques to include quantitative approaches to market research and rules-based trading system design and testing. Technical analysis provides the tools to successfully navigate the gap between intrinsic value and market price across all asset classes through a disciplined, systematic approach to market behavior and the law of supply and demand.

Earning the CMT demonstrates mastery of a core body of knowledge of investment risk in portfolio management. Our continued commitment to the global members of the CMT Association and prospective new members creates a multitude of continuing education opportunities through daily, monthly, and annual publications, online webcasts, seminars, and live events which further enhance our unique capacity to advance the discipline of technical analysis among industry professionals.
