Graduate Certificate in Technical Market Analysis
Golden Gate University's nationally prominent graduate Technical Analysis program was founded and developed by Professor Henry Pruden, one of the leading authorities on technical analysis education. The program is designed to enhance the professional capabilities of traders, advisers, portfolio managers and brokers in stocks, bonds, derivatives, and commodities. Our nationally known practice-experienced faculty are uniquely advantaged to teach the latest in investor psychology and behavioral finance as well as the classic techniques by R.D Wyckoff and by Edwards and Magee. Reflecting the growing need for professional credentials, the program is aligned with and helps prepare students for either the Chartered Market Technician (CMT) or the Chartered Financial Technician (CFTe) examinations.
Online study: Golden Gate University developed the TMA certificate in an online format. New students start with FI 352 online and will be offered the appropriate sequence of classes going forward. Students typically complete the certificate in 18 months or less.
