Who will benefit from this training:

The MMTA program is a two-year course. The purpose is to teach one the methodology of analyzing financial markets, and to train students in market timing skills, according to the studies developed by Raymond Merriman since 1980. Graduates of this course will receive certificates of completion, which will be recognized by others in the field as a solid grounding as a market analyst specializing in the art of market timing. Several graduates of the first MMTA program are now paid analysts for various MMA and ICR reports published monthly by MMA. Others have gone on to start their own market letters or work as analysts for other financial firms. Several have simply used the learning to manage their own – or the family’s – trading and investment accounts.

The MMTA program is most beneficial for those who wish to become excellent analysts and/or market timers. A certificate of completion will be granted to all of those who wish to be recognized as MMTA graduates. Taking exams at the end of each course, plus a final exam at the completion of all courses, is required. Also required will be research studies conducted and presented, which may do solely or with one or two other fellow students wishing to become MMTA graduates

However, one may take the course for his/her own benefit. It is not necessary to take exams or do research projects if one does not wish a certificate of completion. One may also choose to only take some or even only one of the courses.

Each class will be recorded. All students will have access to review the video recording of the classes at any time.
