The predecessor of the Society of Technical Analysts (STA), the Association of Chart and Technical Analysts (ACTA) was founded in 1968, making the U.K.’s professional body for technical analysts the oldest of its kind in the world.
The Society of Technical Analysts (STA) is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the promotion and understanding of technical analysis and its role within behavioural finance as a vital investment tool. It aims to serve all members of the investment community, from the investment industry professional to interested members of the public.
The STA runs a comprehensive education programme, holds monthly lectures (also available via delayed video links on the STA website), publishes a tri-annual journal and offers its members access to professional Bloomberg and Reuters financial and technical analysis newsfeeds, a weekly blog, IFTA webinars as well as an extensive library. All STA educational courses and examinations are accredited by the CISI (the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment) and IFTA (the International Federation of Technical Analysts).

Simply because something worked long ago (or even yesterday) does not insure that it is an effective way to deliver training today and in the future. Participants in both corporate and university training demand more, much more than is currently offered.. They are looking for things that engage them, excite them and involve them. At CapitalWave we create “technology based learning” platforms that provide the experiential environment that Generation-X and Y and Millennials demand.
