Technical Analysis of Financial Markets
Twenty First session of Forex Training
Welcome back to Forex professional training in financial markets.
In this session we will talk about Technical Analysis of financial markets, classic Technical Analysis and modern Technical Analysis.
This is basically a way to predict and estimate the market price behavior.
It can be achieved through studying market price history. Price changes and fluctuations are examined alongside of consideration on transaction volume.
Technical Analysis is executed on every asset that has chart and price shift over time especially in Forex, Stock, real estate market and precious metals market especially Gold.
The most attractive analysis for speculators is Technical analysis as it uses mathematical equations and relations to indicate trends and price returns plus long and short directions.
Technical Analysis is categorized into two groups; Classical and Modern analysis.
Classical technical analysis has been established by Charles Dow who has published his theory about technical analysis in the Wall Street Journal newspaper in 1900 on the basis of price change and fluctuation.
He was inspired by natural fundamentals, previous experience and market history.
Modern technical analysis is established on the basis of price movement and has 3 main principles;
- Technical analysis does not specify market price while it intends to predict the future price and trend of market.
- Focus of traders are on market price which is produced from technical analysis and market expectations.
- Technical analysis is only based on an earlier market prices.
Modern technical analysis evaluates and studies on the previous market prices to forecast future market movement and price, thus events are expected to follow the prediction derived from technical analysis.
Most of the people assume that Technical analysis collaborates with Fundamental analysis whereas Fundamental analysis is derived from Technical analysis.
