Monday was the big day, I had my first CMT exam.
It’s one thing stacking up all the topics you need to learn for the test, but it’s another to take on lasting knowledge that’ll carry you for the years ahead.
Shooting through the textbooks and lectures reinforced that despite all the charts I go through, the process I use represents only a very small proportion of the way people interpret technical data. Seriously, there were dozens of indicators, ways to plot price, and even basic assumptions on why we do technical analysis that I had never come across.
This was all so great to learn.
While I might not use these tools on a day-to-day basis, understanding how people look at markets differently and expanding my knowledge and skills can only be a strength.
