MTAEF Awards 2nd CMT Scholarship

The MTA Educational Foundation (MTAEF) awarded its second CMT Scholarship in late August to Tanner Moore, a senior at the University of Arkansas. Tanner is in the honors program at the Sam M. Walton College of Business at U of A. In the past year he had an internship at a foreign exchange brokerage firm and was involved as an aerospace analyst with the student-run Rebsamen Trust. After graduation in May 2012 Tanner plans to begin a career path in investment banking.

The MTAEF has had a long and successful relationship with the Walton College of Business and the Garrison Financial Institute, supporting the teaching of technical analysis on campus. The Foundation addresses a select group of students who come to New York each fall to network with U of A alumni in the financial industry. Research associates Sergio Santamaria and Vensti Stamenov are both CMTs and embrace the Foundation’s curriculum for the teaching of technical analysis.

Adam LaceyThe MTA Educational Foundation (MTAEF) is pleased to announce the award of its first CMT Scholarship to Adam Gray Lacey, a Senior in Economics at The Pennsylvania State University (PSU) Smeal College of Business. Adam is a member of PSU’s Trading Club, which educates its members on various technical analysis methods. He was drawn to the club while seeking a systematic way to gauge and measure market flow.

Adam participated in PSU Trading Club’s Spring 2012 trading competition, winning with a portfolio return of 22% for the period. He was awarded the $500 scholarship and will be taking the October 2012 Level 1 exam. Adam graduates in December 2012 and plans on continuing with a Master’s degree in Finance. A favorite book of his is “Trading in the Zone” by Mark Douglas.
