Canadian Society of Technical Analysts

About the CSTA


The Canadian Society of Technical Analysts was founded in 1984 as a non-profit professional organization with the following objectives:

  • Encourage the development of technical analysis.
  • Provide an outlet for the exchange of information for the benefit of all members.
  • Educate the financial community in Canada about the uses of technical analysis in the investment decision-making process.
  • Foster among its members the practice of technical analysis in a professional and ethical manner.

As part of its educational mandate, the CSTA holds regular meetings in several major centres across Canada.  Please refer to the tab above labeled Contact to locate a meeting close to you.  Details as to when, where and at what time of day a local chapter meets is contained in that tab.

In addition, there are regional conferences (usually held annually) extending over one or two days, and an Annual Charity Forecast Dinner to raise money for a good cause.

The CSTA also encourages its members to create informal study and peer learning groups.  Several chapters hold study groups to allow individual aspects of technical analysis to be studied in depth.   Individual chapter blogs have also been created in our chapter section for local members to exchange ideas or post questions for fellow technicians to consider or answer.  

The CSTA recognizes outstanding contributions to the development of technical analysis with the A.J. Frost Memorial Award given out to a deserving individual at the Annual General Meeting.
