The United Kingdom Chapter of the MTA has been one of our most active chapters in recent years. Chaired by Alex Spiroglou, CFTe, MSTA, the UK Chapter holds highly attended meetings every month in the heart of London.
These Technical Analysis meetings in the United Kingdom are generally open to all members & non-members at no charge (unless otherwise noted). Attendance at any of these meetings qualifies MTA members for 3 Continuing Education (CE) credits.
