Technical analysis

Technical analysis complements fundamental analysis by focusing more on numbers, patterns, and statistics, instead of the intrinsic value of an asset. Traders employ technical analysis to try to estimate future price behavior based on past trading performance and price movements rather than fundamental health, and typically do so by referring to patterns on an asset’s price chart. The idea behind technical analysis is that price trends themselves are a catalyst for future price trajectory, because history tends to repeat itself.

Technical Trends

Any underlying asset that is sensitive to changes in supply and demand can be forecasted with technical analysis. Stocks, bonds, commodities and currencies are all the focus of technical analysts, who believe that price changes are never random, and that the reason for any small or large movement can be identified with the proper strategy.

Some popular technical indicators used for this trading methodology are found below:

  • Moving Averages: Moving averages are a lagging indicator that can help illustrate to traders where the market is heading. The average price of an asset over different time periods is mapped onto the chart, showing broader trends and how they may intersect.
  • Relative Strength Index: The RSI is a tool that indicates the momentum behind price movements of an asset. It can show how strong or weak a current trend is, and when conditions are ripe for a reversal in either direction.
  • Fibonacci Retracements: Fibonacci retracements are technical indicators that demonstrate to traders where major support and resistance lines may appear. They can provide a good signal of where a trend might slow down, encounter more order activity, or reverse direction.
