Learning Resources

Web Series

The Educational Web Series is a one hour online lecture that covers an aspect of active investment management. With the CMT Association mission focused on advancing the discipline of technical analysis, we tend to feature presentations which focus on rules-based strategies, intermarket relationships and macro analysis, volatility, and approaches to managing market risk.

All presentations are focused on educational, not commercial content. The entire webcast runs for approximately one hour, with the presentation typically lasting for 45-50 minutes and the remaining 10-15 minutes reserved for a live Q&A session. In the past the CMT Association has hosted world-renowned investment professionals such as Martin Pring, Ned Davis, Dennis Gartman, Thomas Dorsey, Charles Kirkpatrick, CMT, and Ralph Acampora, CMT.

Educational Foundation
Library at Baruch College

The TAEF library is located at the Newman Library in Baruch College, located at 151 E. 25th Street, New York City, NY 10010.The collection of more than 7,000 books and growing is listed below, arranged alphabetically by author. The library also contains the cycle library, given to us by the Foundation for the Study of Cycles.

An item published prior to 1930, advisory letters, journals, newspapers, pictures, sound recordings, and unbound books may not be borrowed from the library. A publication may not be eligible for borrowing depending on its replacement value and uniqueness. Special requests may be considered.

The library is open to all CMT Association members, as well as students and faculty of Baruch College, all CUNY students and faculty, and students and faculty of all University Interlibrary members.

How do I access the TAEF Collection?


Go to the Baruch Library website:


  1. Go to Library Home Page
  2. Choose “Books (Print)” and click “Advanced Search”
  3. Select “Command Search” and use WCL – Library Code:
    WCL = MTA


The TAEF collection is housed separately from the rest of the Newman collection and secured, so an appointment is needed to browse the collection. An appointment can be made by contacting the Interlibrary Loan office at illbb@baruch.cuny.edu, in advance.

The library hours can be found at:

However, it is best to arrange a visit during normal business hours, 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday as Baruch Security has to be notified and a staff member is required for physical access to the library.

How do I borrow a book?

Books may be borrowed for six weeks by members, with one renewal, by notifying the CMT Association office, which will make the arrangements with Baruch. Shipping costs outside the US are very high and it is most likely more cost effective for you to obtain the book directly from a local bookstore, Amazon or a local library.

An item published prior to 1930, advisory letters, journals, newspapers, pictures, sound recordings, and unbound books may not be borrowed from the library.  A publication may not be eligible for borrowing depending on its replacement value and uniqueness. Special requests may be considered.
