The Market Technicians Association and the CFA Institute have jointly published a literature review entitled Technical Analysis: Modern Perspectives.
Recent research has addressed the role of technical analysis in the broader context of financial markets and begins to trace the linkages among behavioural economics, individual actors in financial markets, and the role of technical analysis in studying the behaviour of individual actors. The efforts stemming from the job analysis and revision of the CMT curriculum led to a refined articulation of our discipline and strengthened our position with respect to the broader investment industry. This paper clarifies and solidifies our emphasis on objectivity and risk management in the investment process. The CFA Institute Research Foundation it is their modern interest to co-publish this review with the MTA and it will send a strong message about the increased utility and complimentary nature of technical analysis within the fundamental community.
I encourage you to read the paper and share it with your colleagues, clients, and professional contacts. Let the world understand the place technical analysis has in serious modern research and market analysis.
