XIM University has partnered with the CMT Association in providing students an opportunity to earn the CMT® designation on the 11th of April 2022.
Founded in the late 1960s, the CMT Association has served the financial industry for nearly 50 years. What started as a small group of technical research analysts in NYC has matured into an industry beacon for professionals worldwide. Today, they strive to deliver value through diverse education and networking opportunities, member advocacy, career advancement, and the highest standards of professional ethics.
The CMT Program demonstrates mastery of a core body of knowledge of investment risk in portfolio management. Their market philosophy is grounded in behavioral economics and extends beyond classical pattern recognition techniques to include quantitative approaches to market research and rules-based trading-system design and testing. Like the CFA, the CMT Program too has 3 levels.
Selection for the CMT Association’s Academic Partner Program signifies a strong commitment to students’ career readiness and applied learning. Institutions in the Academic Partner Program demonstrate academic rigor in financial courses ranging from quantitative methodologies to behavioral finance, as well as portfolio management and other key aspects of technical analysis.
With this partnership, the two institutions illustrate an innovative solution to the growing demand for student education and career preparedness, while advocating for the advancement of technical analysis in India. Technical analysis, which is a crucial part of investment and trading decisions, has evolved over hundreds of years. While modern technical analysis retains its roots in classical observations of market behavior, it extends beyond pattern recognition to employ groundbreaking quantitative methodologies and rules-based trading-system design and testing.
