The Edward S. Ageno School of Business congratulates Professor Henry O. Pruden for winning the Market Technicians Association’s Annual Award. Established in 1974, the Annual Award does not recognize a single achievement or even a year of achievements, but rather acknowledges a career of “outstanding accomplishment in technical analysis.”
In recognition of Dr. Pruden’s contributions to the field of technical analysis, his MTA Annual Award trophy is inscribed, “for his determination to establish the first Graduate Level Certificate of Technical Market Analysis at Golden Gate University where he has taught, mentored and inspired thousands of students and professional technicians throughout his 40‑year career.” Dr. Pruden’s contributions to the academy were previously recognized by the MTA in 2010 when he received the Mike Epstein Award for pioneering achievements in the teaching of market technical analysis.
Pruden’s work has also been recognized worldwide. In 2013, the International Federation of Technical Analysts honored Prof. Pruden with IFTA’s Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of his outstanding contributions to technical market analysis education worldwide.

What is Techical Analysis?
Technical analysis provides a framework for informing investment management decisions by applying a supply and demand methodology to market prices. Technical analysts employ a disciplined, systematic approach that seeks to minimize the impact of behavioral biases and emotion from the investment practice.
