What is a CMT Certification?


A Chartered Market Technician (CMT) is an international certification for professional technical analysts awarded by The CMT Association. Having this certification, one must follow high ethical and professional standards. It is the only certification for technical analysts approved and recognized by the US SEC, NYSE and NASDAQ, and qualifies the charter holder a series 86 SEC Analysts Certification in the US.

Why is this important to you?

Each professional field has their own accreditation committee that regulates and certifies individuals to make sure that they have the expertise and body of knowledge to do business and work in the specific field. This certification differentiates the holder from all other individuals working in the same field. And when you are working with someone who has earned the highest credential in a certain field or industry, you know you are working with someone who is dedicated and experienced in that field.

Series 86 US SEC Certification:

In the US, their SEC requires anyone who is researching and advising on stocks to have a Series 86 certification. This certification is to protect you from con artists, scams, and individuals who lack the expertise to properly teach and advise you about stock trading. Having the CMT designation is an alternative to the Series 86 exam, which makes holders qualify for this specific certification.
