No one ever said technical analysis was easy.
But over time, with practice, the easier it becomes.
For months, we’ve introduced you to several technical tools. However, the one we get the most questions about are Fibonacci retracements. To many, this took is considered complex and outdated. But to be very honest, it’s not complex at all once you practice with it.
Options are still one of the most misunderstood opportunities.
They’re too hard. They’re far too expensive. You have to be rich to trade them. Those are just some of the excuses I’ve heard over the last 20 years. But to be very honest with you those excuses are laughable.
All of a sudden, there’s a gap in the chart of your favorite stock.
Surprise news, earnings, something unexpected caused a bout of extreme optimism or pessimism that resulted in the move.
With the incredibly popular Avengers: Endgame film, shares of Disney Co. exploded from a low of $107.50 to $142.50 in April 2019.
After the film grossed $1.2 billion in its opening weekend (biggest in history), analysts were still seen raising price targets. JP Morgan noted the stock could run to $150 a share by the end of the year.
If you pull a rubber band too far, too fast, what happens?
It snaps back, right? The same thing happens with stocks, indexes, and currencies. If they’re pulled too far in one direction, eventually they’ll snap back and revert to back to the mean. In fact, we see it happen all the time.
I love when traders tell me technical analysis doesn’t work.
While they’re entitled to be wrong, the fact remains that technical analysis does work, sometimes by up to 80% of the time. Granted, there is no Holy Grail, but if we use the right indicators, we increase our odds of success. Especially if we apply those indicators to well known stocks that may only be down temporarily.
