CMT Level 3 Preparation

CMT 3 builds on all of that content and introduces some new concepts, looking much deeper at market correlations, and bundling it all together in some difficult questions. Where this gets really hard is that there are a lot of long-form questions requiring you to explain your answers. You need to type fast and answer clearly (we’ll give you lots of exam tips during the course).

Thanks for taking the time to investigate the Optuma CMT Level 3 Preparation Course. We’re sure you have memories of how hard CMT 2 was and having to wait for the result. CMT 3 builds on all of that content and introduces some new concepts, looking much deeper at market correlations, risk analysis, portfolio construction and bundling it all together in some difficult questions. Where this gets really hard is that there are a lot of long-form questions requiring you to explain your answers. You need to type fast and answer clearly (we’ll give you lots of exam tips during the course).

The course is self-guided, meaning that you are free to consume the content as quickly or as slowly as you like. The lessons follow the chapters in the book and for each we provide the following:

  • Chapter Notes
  • Video Explanation
  • Optuma Workbook – so you can see the techniques in action while you are studying.

As well as that we provide lists of all the Technical Analysis terms you need to know and cheat sheets you can print out to help you learn the material which you need for the exam.

Sometimes you just need to be able to ask questions. Mathew Verdouw, CMT, CFTe (your instructor in this course) makes himself available in our private forums for candidates who enrol in this course.

What our students say

Coupling the study text , Optuma course and the Optuma software really helped me grasp the key concepts and apply them in preparation for the exam. More so it helped me secure a solid foundation to start my career in Technical Analysis. I look forward to continuous learning and application to the trading markets. I recommend the program to all aspiring Technical Analysts.

I successfully passed the CMT III exam. It would never be happened without the Optuma support. It was my single point of preparation – and due to time constraints it has had to be very efficient. And it worked!

The videos were very helpful and in combination with the slides, it was a very efficient manner to get through the exam!

The CMT is a self study course and any extra help is most helpful. I have used Optuma for Levels II and III in Oct 2016 and April 2017 and on both occasions it has helped me a lot. There is no substitute for reading the text thoroughly but watching the videos post reading is an excellent way to reinforce the material. for Level III, I have watched the videos several times. The best part, according to me are the referencing of the learning objectives to material in the text followed by the Forum discussions.
All questions, no matter how basic, are answered almost immediately by Mathew. The free use of the Optuma software, which is available to all registered candidates, is a plus and for Optuma tutorial subscribers the workbooks which reference the material under discussion are a super plus!

Just wanted to say thanks after having passed my CMT Level III exam recently. I found your course to be extremely helpful and an excellent investment. The format is very user friendly, easily understood, simple to access, and provides the perfect level of detail and advice to follow in both material retention/comprehension and test-taking strategy. I would strongly recommend it to any aspiring or future CMT candidates.

I’d add that your support team is very attentive and helpful as well.

Mathew–I want to thank you for the quality of your study materials. Taking your courses helped me pass both CMT II and CMT III. I know that I would not have done as well without having taken your courses online together with having the reference materials.
Thank you again for your CMT course and your commitment to excellence!

Do I need to read the book?

Yes, this course is a supplement to the book. Remember that the exam is based on the textbook, so you should read it carefully.

If you have not yet purchased the book, make sure you get the digital version, it makes searching easy and you are going to need to be able to search. You can get the digital version from Wylie here.

Do I have to take notes?

Yes! After teaching hundreds of students at all three levels of these exams, we now believe that it is the difference between success and failure for most people. If you approach this as if you were at University, think of us presenting the information and you taking notes as we go. There is a lot of education research that shows that students that write their own notes—by hand— will retain the information and perform better in the exam. Our slides and videos are available to you, but to get maximum benefit from the material, write your own notes.

Do I need to install Optuma to do the course?

No. We offer free access to Optuma for all CMT candidates. We also make available Optuma workbooks (that’s how we store analysis in Optuma) so that you can get some hands-on experience with the different ideas. It’s no secret that we’re a software company and we sell software. We’d love you to install Optuma and see all the benefits it can give you, but it is not required to take the prep course and the exam.


We know that the course and support will be a great aid as you prepare for this exam. If you want to sign up and get instant access to the material, just click on “Buy The Course” at the top-right of this page. If you were sent, or already have, an Optuma username and password, please ensure that you use those details when you sign up. It will save you from entering your information twice.
