Free Guide to Technical Analysis for Stock Trading

By Stock Research Pro • April 3rd, 2011

The Stock Research Pro Guide to Technical Analysis for Stock Trading is the latest of our free white papers to help investors through the stock research and investment process. The technical analysis paper follows the Guide to Fundamental Analysis to provide a contrast between the two stock trading styles and should help investors understand how the two approaches can work together.

About Technical Analysis

Technical analysis describes the study of stock price history to uncover patterns that can help forecast future price values and behaviors. In contrast to fundamental analysis, the technical approach does not call for a review of company financial statements, company management or industry prospects. Rather, technical analysis is concerned with the behavior of investors and what can be learned by reviewing past stock price patterns as a means or predicting future valuations. The technical analyst seeks to uncover and exploit these predictable price patterns in order to make a profit.

What the Technical Analysis Guide Covers

The Stock Research Pro Guide to Technical Analysis for Stock Trading is a 17-page paper that takes the investor through all of the basic and some of the more advanced topics in technical analysis, including:
