CMT Association Celebrates Members In Institutional Investor Magazine Rankings

NEW YORK, NY (Wednesday, October 16, 2019) – The CMT Association is pleased to announce its strong representation in Institutional Investor Magazine’s 2019 All-American Research Team rankings for technical analysis. Out of the top ten analysts named in the technical analysis ranking category, seven are members of the CMT Association, with six of the seven holding the coveted Chartered Market Technician® (CMT) designation.

“This representation is well-deserved,” said Scott Richter, President of the CMT Association. “We’re proud to recognize the talents of our membership and honored that Institutional Investor’s rankings reflect this talent.”

CMT charterholders represented in the ranking include Richard Ross, CMT, in first place; Christopher Verrone, CMT, in third place; Jeffrey deGraaf, CMT, in fourth place; Stephen Suttmeier, CMT, in fifth place; Ari Wald, CMT, in eighth place; and Craig W.

Over the last few decades, the CMT Program has emerged as the leading professional designation for active investment managers and practitioners of technical analysis. “Particularly during periods of sentiment swings and market volatility, investment professionals that are able to mitigate portfolio risk stand to benefit clients and firms with better risk adjusted returns,” said Stan Dash, CMT and Managing Director of the CMT Program. “CMT charterholders can bring that value to our industry.”   

The CMT designation marks the highest education within the discipline of technical analysis and is the preeminent designation for practitioners of technical analysis worldwide. Earning this designation demonstrates mastery of a core body of knowledge of investment risk in portfolio management; candidates in the CMT Program must pass a rigorous series of tests before earning the approval of the Association’s Admissions Committee and becoming active CMT Charterholders.
