About Technical Analysis

Technical Analysis is the systematic method of analyzing financial instruments, including securities, futures and interest rate products, with only market-delivered information such as price, volume, volatility and open interest. The tools of technical analysis are measurements and derivatives of price, for example on-balance volume, price oscillators, momentum measurements and pattern recognition. A Technical Analyst applies such tools for forecasting and timing the trading and investing in financial instruments. Technical Analysis is a universal discipline.

Free Booklet: The First Step Guide to Technical Analysis

This booklet introduces the core of “Technical Analysis”. Among the various methods of technical analyses, we will show you in this booklet the following three methods, i.e., Candlestick Charts, Trendlines, and Moving Averages.

Candlestick charts are one of the price recording methods developed in Japan but widely used globally, which indicate the current market situation at all times, though the charts pick up only the figures of the open, the close, the high, and the low.

Trendlines and Moving Averages are the methods used to understand the major tendency of price change, namely, the trend. These methods of analysis are widely known as Trend Analysis. Trend analysis has been used from older times but has become very popular only in the last half a century.

We sincerely hope that, when you read this book, you will have an interest in technical analysis and what has made investors develop such an analysis method. We are quite confident that technical analysis will be one of the useful methods for you to improve your investment activity.
