Technical analysis is a method used in the evaluation of investments and in the identification of trading opportunities derived from the analysis of statistical trends and patterns forming in the historical price and volume data charts of a trading instrument or asset.
Technical Analysis is based on 3 general underlying assumptions:
The market discounts everything
Technical Analysts believe that every relevant market factor is already counted in the instrument’s price. As such, the only thing they need to analyse is the price movement.
Price moves in trends
Prices are always expected to form and follow trends, even at random. It is more likely for a price to continue a past trend than to move erratically.
History tends to repeat itself
Technical Analysts base their predictions on the observation that history tends to move in circles and thus repeat itself. They attribute historic price movement to market psychology based on fear or excitement. By trying to pinpoint these emotions when analysing chart patterns and understanding movement trends, analysts aim at predicting future price movement from market sentiment.
