Technical analysis is very important for trading, but many people don’t understand what it is, nor do they know how to apply it to their own trading. The truth is, when applied correctly and objectively, technical analysis works.
So what is technical analysis? It is a trading discipline employed to evaluate investments and identify trading opportunities by analysing statistical trends gathered from trading activity, such as price movement and volume. Unlike fundamental analysts, who attempt to evaluate a security’s intrinsic value, technical analysts focus on patterns of price movements, trading signals and various other analytical charting tools to evaluate a security’s strength or weakness.
