Chris Cain, CMT And Larry Connors Announced As 2020 Dow Award Winners

NEW YORK, NY (February 16, 2020) -- The CMT Association announced on Friday that Chris Cain, CMT and Laurence Connors, of Connors Research LLC, are the 2020 winners of the CMT Association’s prestigious Charles H. Dow Award.

The pair received the Dow Award for their research, entitled “Quantamentals – Combining Technical and Fundamental Analysis in a Quantitative Framework for Better Investment Results,” a paper that demonstrates a unique approach to the application of technical analysis. They will be honored during the CMT Association’s 2020 Annual Symposium on April 2-3, 2020.

In addition to receiving the award recognition, Mr. Cain and Mr. Connors will give a presentation on the topic of “Quantamentals” during the 2020 Annual Symposium. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn firsthand about the development and implementation of this winning strategy, ask questions, and think critically about their own approach in the context of this new research.

Mr. Cain and Mr. Connors demonstrated that a combination of investment styles including fundamental and technical analysis within a quantitative, rules-based framework led to greatly improved performance. They also discovered that identifying known factors in their model led to increased performance over the course of the last 16 years.

The winning paper will be available to read in full on the CMT Association website after its publication in the Spring 2020 edition of the Journal of Technical Analysis, which will be published in early March. The archives of previous award-winning papers are also accessible on the Dow Award page.

Since 1994, the CMT Association has presented the Charles H. Dow Award for excellence and creativity in technical analysis. This Award represents the most significant competition for recognition in the field of technical analysis. The papers honored with the Award have historically represented the richness and depth of the technical analysis discipline.
