What is Technical Analysis?
Technical analysis is based on the assumption that market prices are moving in patterns, and that those trends are repeated over time. Data on the price, time, and volume of the trade and all others are plotted on a chart. The plots shape patterns which can be analyzed to show what is going to happen next. When did supply and demand change, and why? And what does with future demand and supply?
Technical analysis is straightforward and simple, from the experienced hedge fund manager to the beginner trader, everyone is accessible to Technical analysis. However, technical methods are easier to understand than fundamental, which usually requires time and study to understand. Actually, the technical analysis focuses specifically on the price action, supply and demand, and support and resistance which really help Forex market traders to understand the proper and clear analysis of the chart.
A release of economic data or the news event can theoretically, affect the price in a particular way. For example, an increase in US jobs should have a beneficial impact on the US Dollar. The EUR / USD must go down as a result. Most likely a fundamental investor will enter a Sell on EUR / USD. This is only happening in theory. In fact, things are far very from being perfect. Important news in the U.S. could indeed cause an increase in EUR / USD and others USD pairs as well.
