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.
