Are You Favor Fundamental Analysis or Technical Analysis? I Have Another One….

Recommended Posts

Fundamental analysis or technical analysis are great tools and I believe that many are quite familiar with those. But one day I used my own way and surprised, I found that it also can make money. It’s very simple, just used my eyes looked at the raw data of price curve vs. volume without any makeup tools on it. I used my feeling to feel the trend since stock market only go up or down two directions. Then I found that I still can make money. Believe it or not, I can see 3D picture without using 3D glasses, just refocus my eyes consciously. Cheers, just for fun and have a great weekend. :confused:

If you have a small capital to trade or invest with ,then maybe fundamental analysis wont do much help as its a long term strategy. For small capital trading technical analysis will suite more..

It is not an essay task to know the differences between fundamental and technical investment analysis, as they are many. Most investors believe they are using one method or the other, if they understand the differences which most of them don't and thus, In reality, a majority of investors are using a combination of these two types of analysis. For me, I consider myself using an analysis which is 70% based on the fundamental analysis and the rest 30% of the technical analysis.

I am in the favor of fundamental analysis ! If you are asking me to choose one of these two only ! But if there is no strict restriction, using both makes the most sense to me. Since fundamental and technical analysis provides information that adds insight to investment analysis. I use to use the Fundamental analysis first ! Because I think technical analysis is not enough alone to confirm the findings but it can be helpful if you use fundamental analysis first and then technical analysis.

Well, I personally think that the combination of both must be used. But with gravitation towards fundamental analysis.

 

Technical must be more like making steps or choosing your speed and changing gears in the car, while fundamental is more about choosing direction and turning the wheel. You know how fast (high) or slow (low) you can go, but you must pay attention to the road (news) and make your choices accordingly.

 

I'm more in favor of sidra position. More than half of fundamental and less than half of technical.

Fundamental or technical analyses are both great tools! For some extent, I believe the mental activities to make the right decision behind these tools maybe the key. There are so many interactions behind the scene, even many use the same tools or same procedures. Could we find a scientific way to predict it? Could we win the game even if we think that we could predict it? Cheers, have a fun.

I use both of them, because is very important to know technical and fundamental analysis to. If you are a scalper must be carful, don't trade with your technical analysis if coming strong news. I like scalp trade, so I always look for news before a trade.

 

Good luck

IMO main priority should always be fundamentals cause fundamentalists are the ones who survive any market conditions....People like Warren Buffet, Karl Icahn, George Soros etc have not only survived but thrived for decades cause they dont take chances unless the forecast-ed output is strong and concrete which is done through studying fundamentals....

Technicals can be more useful for short term retailers but still Fundamentals cant be ignored if u are serious in this business..

I would say I use TA , but also psychological analysis as that works better for me. I find behavioral finance methods work better for me than 2 lines crossing some other line on a chart.

This.

 

Technical is about short-term fluctuations and seeing some pattern how strong is the "storm".

But market reacts to news and that's why priority always must go to fundamentals. Well, obviously you must have logical and analytical abilities to profit from it.

 

I think you are better off with fundamental analysis if you want to take larger profits.

IMO, Technical analysis should be preferred while making trading decisions and Fundamental analysis should be preferred while making investment decisions.

 

Aren't we talking about forex here? Which is more trading, than investment? So that means you are in favor of technical?

 

Traders, please keep the discussion alive, it is very interesting to listen to different point of views, but it seems that nobody cares..

I will definitely use Technical analysis for trading in FOREX and will use Fundamental analysis if I want to make an investment (for more than 12 months) into Equities or Bonds.

    • First, we need diligence to successfully implement any financial plan. In the example above, those with livestock are advised to carefully monitor the state and condition of their animals. If an animal becomes ill, it needs special care. Insufficient food or water for livestock requires immediate attention. A farmer with herds must look after his animals if they are to survive and the household is to prosper. How does this apply to those of us who aren’t farmers or ranchers? The fundamental lesson is that we cannot expect financial success by simply devising a plan and then blissfully ignoring the factors that affect it. Instead, we must know where, how and why we spend our money and what is happening with our assets. If we ignore this principle of diligently monitoring our finances, we will find ourselves making poor decisions and spending money we don’t have.
    • I have been working with automated charts for about ten years now, with TradeStation's EasyLanguage.  I don't do the programming, but I pay somoeone to do the work for me.  I have had well over one-hundred strategies created over the years, and several hundreds of different versions of the strategies.  I often trade live; the US equities market.   An old strange problem that I used to experience on rare occasions just re-surfaced today; when I am trading live, and the entry order does not show up on the chart at all (I always check both boxes for fully automated trading (no confirmation necessary).  When I click off the live trading, the trade suddenly appears where it should on the chart, but the live orders were not sent, so it obviously does me no good.  To make matters worse, the only time that this strange thing seems to happens is on the REALLY profitable trades!  I am using one-minute time frames, and my chart is set up for 10 days.  When I use this setting with backtesting, all of the trades show up.  If anyone could please help me with this very frustrating issue, you would be a "lifesaver"!  Thank you very much.
