With more than 1250 members the STA is one of the largest technical analysis not-for-profit organisations in the world.

Ask the experts. Professional technical analysts working at major banks and other financial institutions are members and attend the monthly meetings. An important part of these meetings is the informal, social gathering, conversation and networking that follows the main talk. The monthly talks can count as part of your CISI accredited CPD (Continuous Professional Development) requirement as well as expanding your knowledge and appreciation of technical analysis. Leading overseas visitors also speak to the Society and talks are videoed (available to members only). The STA Education Programme: STA Education runs the Diploma Part 1 and Part 2 courses so that complete newcomers and experienced professionals can gain the STA Diploma, the international two-stage qualification in technical analysis. Candidates having successfully passed both levels of the Diploma are eligible to receive IFTA CFTe II accreditation.
