Our Ethical Code is based on the CMT (Chartered Market Technician) Code of Ethics. Below you’ll see its main points.
Maintain at all times the highest standards of professional competence, integrity and judgment.
Tell the truth
Do not publish or make statements that you know or have reason to believe are inaccurate or misleading. Avoid leading others to believe that your technically-derived views of future security price behavior reflect foreknowledge rather than estimates and projections subject to reexamination and, as events may dictate, to change.
Don’t just make stuff up
Do not publish or make statements concerning the technical position of a security, a market or any of its components or aspects unless such statements are reasonable and consistent in light of the available evidence and of the accumulated knowledge in the field of financial technical analysis.
Do not publish or make statements that indefensibly disparage and discredit the analytical work of others.
Follow the law
Do not seek, disseminate or act on the basis of material, non-public (inside) information, if to do so would violate the laws and regulations of any government, governmental agency or regulatory organization relating to the use of inside information.
Keep in confidence knowledge concerning the lawful private affairs of both past and present clients, employers, and employer’s clients.
Put the client first
When you recommend that a security ought to be bought, sold or held, adequate opportunity to act on such a recommendation shall be given to the clients, employer, and the employer’s clients before acting on behalf of either the affiliate’s own account or the accounts of immediate family members.
Do not copy or deliberately use substantially the same language or analysis contained in reports, studies or writings prepared by any author unless permission to do so is received, in advance, from the author.
