The mission of the Journal of Technical Analysis (JTA) is to advance the knowledge and understanding of the practice of technical analysis through the publication of well-crafted, high-quality papers in all areas of technical analysis. Features of the Journal include:
- Research articles accessible by and of special interest to practitioners.
- Survey and synthesis articles intended to provide the reader with an understanding of the current state of practice in a particular area.
- Clinical/case studies of high interest and benefit to the profession.
- Tutorials of interest to both academics and practitioners.
- Practitioner surveys.
- Reviews of business/finance books of interest to practitioners.
Sponsored by the Market Technicians Association (MTA), the JTA is designed to meet the needs of the JTA’s largely practitioner readership. Thus, articles published in the JTA must be of interest to or use to practitioners of technical analysis. In addition, articles must be written in a style that is accessible to the general MTA membership. The JTA editor assures that the topics published in the journal generally reflect the professional interests of the global membership of the Market Technicians Association.
Articles published in the JTA must demonstrate accurate and well-executed research. The JTA maintains high standards for article quality, using a double-blind peer review system. This double-blind review system, in which the identities of authors are not revealed to the reviewers and the identities of reviewers are not revealed to authors, is designed to produce objective and unbiased peer reviews.
