Course Overview

Do you want to become a successful investor? Then, you must learn the intricacies of technical analysis to develop a personal trading style. This is a popular form of security analysis that uses price and volume data to inform decision-making. It involves many complex concepts and calculations that we teach in this Technical Analysis course. Here’s a peek at what you’ll learn. The valuation of a security depends on the activity of rational and irrational market participants. Some investors are led by their emotions or “animal spirits.” A bull represents an investor’s optimism, and a bear—their pessimism about a particular security or the market in general. When investors feel bullish, stock prices go up. Reversely, when investors feel bearish, stock prices go down. Since the market is under the influence of such social-behavioral phenomena, it is not always efficient. So, we need technical analysis to study collective investor psychology. Whether you use it as a stand-alone tool or combine it with fundamental analysis, it is an excellent indicator of a security's optimal price-entry and exit points. Our Technical Analysis course teaches you the major principles, assumptions, and practical applications of this technique. You will learn how to construct and interpret charts and patterns and analyze important indicators. We explain the Elliot Wave Theory and the importance of the Fibonacci numbers to help you understand how technical analysts use cycles. This stock technical analysis course ends with a lesson on Intermarket analysis and its role in asset allocation. Are you looking to enhance your stock market investments and make informed trading decisions based on data-driven insights? This Technical Analysis course is just what you need.

    The Technical Analysis course starts with the main concept and assumptions behind this technique. Performing technical analysis without charts is like playing basketball without a ball. So, next, we introduce the most common types of charts technical analysts use: line, bar, candlestick, and point and figure charts. Then, we examine some key price forecasting tools, such as trading volume and relative strength analysis, and specific mechanics applied when forecasting a security’s performance. You’ll learn the meaning of “trends” and some key concepts used by chart technicians, such as support and resistance levels. But of course, there’s more to technical analysis than that. The art of trade is in spotting patterns that aren’t obvious to all traders. To help you achieve this, our stock analysis course covers the two main types of patterns: reversal and continuation. We explain what technical analysts call “head and shoulders” and show you examples of “double tops” and “double bottoms” price patterns. We also explore common technical analysis indicators to help you grasp the practicalities. We start with price indicators, such as the moving average and Bollinger Bands, and continue with momentum oscillators, such as the relative strength index and the rate of change, Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD), and stochastic oscillators. Next, the Technical Analysis course covers several non-price-based indicators, such as the put/call and short interest ratios, frequently used by technical analysts to supplement chart analysis. Toward the end of the stock analysis course, we explore how technical analysts utilize cycles and the key tenants of Elliot Wave and Fibonacci numbers. Lastly, we look at the big picture and show you how technical analysts examine different asset classes and securities in parallel.

The course seemed to be easy to understand, but the speed of the video seems to be very fast, which is very hard to catch the wording, especially in this course.

As an Introduction to the technical analysis, it's Ok. But if you want to go to more details and much deeper, it is not what you are looking for.
