Institutional Investor Article Features CMT Association And Several Analysts

The Institutional Investor on Monday ran a feature-length article about the rising popularity of technical analysis within mainstream investor circles, featuring CMT Association CEO Alvin Kressler as well as several other technical analysts who hold a variety of positions in the finance industry.
