The Technical Analyst Awards ceremony was held last Thursday night for the seventh year running at Le Meriden Piccadilly.

Several well known people from the industry were there, including Axel Rudolph, chairman of the STA, Deborah Owen, head of education, and Karen Jones, head of marketing for the STA.

The highlight of the evening was the Technical Analyst Of The Year Award which was won by David Sneddon, Credit Suisse, who had a barnstorming year, winning the Best Bank Equity Research & Strategy, Best Bank FX Research & Strategy and Best Bank Multi-Asset Research & Strategy categories. David is just one of the many outstanding technical analysts who teach on the STA Diploma course and speak at STA events.
