Glossary Term: TECHNICAL ANALYSIS

Definition(s) for TECHNICAL ANALYSIS:


1. ) Technical analysis dwells on charts of stock price movements and trading volume, as opposed to a company's business, earnings, and competition. Investors who use technical analysis focus on the psychology of the market, scrutinizing investor behavior. They try to determine where the big, institutional money is going so they can put their cash in the same places.

2. ) Anticipating future price movement using historical prices, trading volume, open interest, and trading data to study price patterns.

3. ) The method of predicting future stock price movements based on observation of historical stock price movements.

4. ) A method of predicting future stock price movements based on the study of historical market data such as (among others) the prices themselves, trading volume, open interest, the relation of advancing issues to declining issues, and short selling volume.

5. ) Research on patterns in past share trading as a basis for predicting future trends in prices. Technical analysis – in contrast to company or fundamental analysis – assumes that prices rise and fall at different rates in patterns that can be exposed. Analysis of past changes enables prediction of future movements.

6. ) A method of forecasting price movements through trading volume and price studies. Technical analysts use charts and technical indicators to identify and project price trends.
