Mike Epstein AwardIn 2009, the MTA Educational Foundation established an annual award in memory of our late colleague, Mike Epstein.  Each year, the award is presented to the person who best exemplifies Mike’s goals for long-term sponsorship of Technical Analysis in Academia and in practice!

2014 Award Winner – Blake LeBaron
