Striving to further the profession with diverse opportunities in continuing education, advocacy, ethics awareness, and networking.
The CMT Association hosts regular one-hour online lectures covering a variety of active investment management topics. In the interest of 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.
Elliott Wave International’s Mark Galasiewski (gala-SHEV-skee) shows you how he has used the timing of headline news events such as terrorist attacks, political scandals and even epidemic disease outbreaks to support his bullish forecasts for Asian stock markets. Using real-time examples published in EWI’s monthly Asian-Pacific Financial Forecast, Mark will reveal how Asia and emerging markets offer an extraordinary laboratory for observing social events through the lens of socionomics, Robert Precthter’s theory of financial and social causality. You will learn principles that you can apply to any major stock market index in the world, and you will come away better equipped to capitalize on the counterintuitive relationship between social mood, markets and news.
In many ways, what we’ve seen so far in 2020 has been both record-breaking and devastating. With a near 40% loss from the S&P 500 Index peak on February 19 to the bear market lows March 23, investors are now trying to make sense of record-breaking gains during the past 4 months. Immense rallies in the past have taken place coming off major market lows near the start of new bull markets. What does this mean for returns going out six months to a year?

In this presentation Kirk Northington, CMT, will discuss market microstructure features relevant to technical analysts. Specifically, he will expand on how large financial players are moved by volatility and regulatory influences.
Market microstructure has high importance to analytics, and the trade/investing decision. As technical analysts we have only scratched the surface of all that is possible within our skill set and financial markets’ microstructures.
