Launch of MTA SmartBrief

Timely expertise for the active investment community

NEW YORK, NY (September 27, 2016) – The Market Technicians Association (MTA), the governing body for the Chartered Market Technician ®(CMT) Program, is pleased to announce a new partnership with SmartBrief to produce a daily e-mail newsletter. Starting Monday, October 3, 2016 MTA SmartBrief will bring the most important and timely news stories about the global financial markets directly to subscribers' inboxes. The MTA SmartBrief is a daily snapshot of market analysis and headline news. The email newsletter features summaries curated from thousands of sources including The Wall Street Journal, Traders Magazine, Bloomberg and more.

MTA Smartbrief separates information from noise. Written by expert editors, the brief is designed to help investment professionals save time and ensure they are prepared. “The partnership provides our members with a daily update on the most relevant financial market news,” according to Tyler Wood, Managing Director of Global Business Development. MTA SmartBrief complements our other longer-format publications including the peer-reviewed Journal of Technical Analysis, our monthly Technically Speaking magazine and the weekly Educational Web Series that keep members up to date on the ever-changing investment industry.”

But what makes MTA Smartbrief unique among other daily news digests is a section of original content called the Technical Outlook. This is a unique opportunity for CMT charterholders to publish short form analysis alongside a single chart. The headline will link back to a longer form research piece published by the member and provides readers with a quick market view of an index or single security.

“SmartBrief seeks industry partners that have a large professional audience and a niche industry focus. The Market Technicians Association is a natural fit for us to round out our suite of financial industry publications,” said Charles Tomlinson, Senior Finance Editor at Smartbrief.

Now you can keep current with your industry without having to sift through the news every day. Watch for the launch issue of this brand new complimentary member service. This is your invitation to subscribe.
