A Record-Setting Evening for the MTAEF’s Annual Fundraiser

The 2016 Market Technicians Association Educational Foundation annual fundraiser was held on October 26th at The Yale Club of New York City. This yearly event is an important source of funding that contributes to the foundation’s ongoing efforts to establish, support, and continually enhance both accredited courses and research in the field of Technical Analysis on campuses around the globe.

This year the record number of supporters in attendance were treated to a full evening of events. Highlights included an informative panel discussion by panel members Jim Cramer, Jeff DeGraff, Steve Blitz and Jason Trennert, a silent auction and the presentation of the prestigious Mike Epstein Award for 2016 to Dr. Edward J. Zychowicz, CFA, CMT of Hofstra University. 

Each year at the fundraiser, the Mike Epstein Award is presented to a prominent member of the academic community in recognition of that individual’s many years of successfully advocating for the inclusion of Technical Analysis in both the curriculum offered, as well as the research being conducted, in the world of academia. 

The award was established by the foundation in 2009 to honor Mike Epstein’s legacy of long term sponsorship of Technical Analysis in both academia and financial industry practice. Prior winners include academic luminaries such as Dr. Andrew Lo of MIT, Dr. Hank Pruden of Golden Gate University, Professor Bruce Kamich of Baruch College and Julie Dahlquist and Charles Kirkpatrick, co-authors of the landmark college textbook – “Technical Analysis: The Complete Resource For Financial Market Technicians”. 

This year’s award honored Dr. Zychowicz in recognition of his tireless efforts over many years to incorporate Technical Analysis into both the academic curriculum at Hofstra University as well as his extensive personal catalog of published research. The scope of his research interests include Behavioral Finance, Technical Analysis, Socially Responsible Investing and Sustainability. He has also taught a Technical Analysis course at the graduate level. During the presentation ceremony, foundation board member Lawrence Laterza cited how Dr. Zychowicz has expanded the perspective of young minds through his dedication to blending academic theory with the realities of being a practitioner in the financial industry. It was also noted how his initiatives have served to support the foundation’s efforts to increase the awareness and acceptance of Technical Analysis in both the halls of academia and the libraries of published research.
