Women in Technical Analysis

Women in Technical Analysis (WTA) is a chapter of the Market Technicians Association. The WTA’s objective is to provide a forum for women who are focused on market analysis to network and to exchange ideas.The WTA was founded in 2013 by two industry veterans, Bernadette Murphy and Gail Dudack, who recalled a time when women in finance did more to support each other through different phases in their careers.

Their vision was to create a strong network for today’s industry participants. They recruited Stella Osoba, Salma Abulla and Marnie Owen to chair the organization. Through the support of the Market Technicians Association, the WTA hosts several events per year that offer opportunities for women to collaborate with and to coach one another.
