Body of Work

A Chartered Market Technician is a professional certification for professional technical analysts administered by the CMT Association. It is the ONLY certification for technical analysts approved and recognized by the SEC, NYSE, and NASDAQ.

Martha Stokes was awarded her CMT after dedicating five years of extensive research and analysis in writing her doctorial equivalent thesis: “Cycle Evolution Theory: How to Identify Evolutionary Abnormal Cycle Patterns Using Technical Analysis.” Martha’s thesis consists of 92 charts with 100 written pages on cycle evolution theory. This was a landmark thesis that totally changed the way cycle theorists and technical analysts understood and approached cycle theory analysis. Her concepts continue to revolutionize our understanding of cycles and their function in the economy and the stock market.

Why is learning from a CMT important?

Each professional field has an accreditation committee that regulates and tests individuals to make certain that they have an extensive body of knowledge and expertise in their field. This certification by testing and thesis writing differentiates these professionals from all others working in their field of expertise.

When you work with a professional who has earned the highest achievement and credentials in their industry, you know you are working with a dedicated, experienced expert in that field.

The CMT Association is recognized by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the NYSE, and NASDAQ.

This means you are getting the most professional education available.
