Technical Analysis

Technical analysis is a trading tool employed to evaluate securities and attempt to forecast their future movement by analyzing statistics gathered from trading activity, such as price movement and volume. Unlike fundamental analysts who attempt to evaluate a security's intrinsic value, technical analysts focus on charts of price movement and various analytical tools to evaluate a security's strength or weakness and forecast future price changes.

Over the years, numerous technical indicators have been developed by analysts in attempts to accurately forecast future price movements. Some indicators are focused primarily on identifying the current market trend, including support and resistance areas, while others are focused on determining the strength of a trend and the likelihood of its continuation. Commonly used technical indicators include trendlines, moving averages and momentum indicators such as the moving average convergence divergence (MACD) indicator.

Though we broke below the Fibonacci 61.8 retracement on Thursday the daily close is still above that level. At the beginning of this year we printed a nice rally from 1045 to 1375$. The 61.8% pullback level of this rally is at 1171$. The Fibonacci 61.8 retracement is a very important level. If we are still in a ...

My post on 11/30/16 noted that the Nasdaq had completed five waves down with bullish momentum divergences and to expect a rally on 12/1/16.

The price has broken above the 61.8% resistance line on my 200 day FBB, and the 14 day RSI is about to cross over 70. Although it is not certain we will see a full 3 standard deviation move from the 200 day moving average, it does appear that a break of the 61.8% resistance line combined with a cross above 70 on ...

Hello all, I think this pair is in a long term uptrend, but we have a good chance for a nice pullback here. I am already in @ 84.57. Excellent risk to reward.

Trading against the reversal of an Ending Diagonal is never a good idea. Price frequently returns to, or exceeds, the starting point. Gold Resource Corp might have another squiggle lower to complete wave (2). I'd like to see some positive divergence set up on MACD.
