Course Overview

Technical analysis is accurate, unemotional, highly profitable and is as close as you can get to a scientific approach to investing and trading.

Yet in today’s turbulent markets, where decisions have become more complex and the overwhelming flood of information more difficult to assimilate, many investors place their hard-earned money into a very professional market and lack a complete knowledge of this powerful technique or even have a basic understanding of a planned approach to investing in the stock market.

Charts cannot guarantee a winner every time, but here are some of the things they can do:

  • They can help determine the overall strength or weakness of the market, sector, or share.

  • They can help determine when to buy and when to sell, by indicating probable levels of support and resistance and signalling trend reversals.

  • They can call attention by unusual volume or price behaviour – to something happening in an individual company that can be most rewarding.

  • They help determine the current trend – up or down or sideways – and whether the trend is slowing down or accelerating.

  • They provide a life history of a stock, currency or commodity at a glance and demonstrate whether one is buying on a rally or on a reaction, at a support level or at a resistance level, and whether the price is historically high or low.
