Investing in company shares is an old practice; however, following an instinct or guessing the forthcoming future is a stale practice. Today, market introduces real-time solution for predicting the share market, and we are far beyond the basic practice of fundamental analysis, which gave us a broad insight into company’s securities. Technical analysis is on the block. Although technical analysis is not a new concept, the emergence of web applications for technical analysis is booming as investors want to test waters before investing.
Before we proceed, let’s take a close look at what we call as technical analysis. First and foremost, technical analysis does not eliminate the need for fundamental analysis. Fundamental analysis is a basic practice to know the company’s reputation and stand in the market before investing. Technical analysis is the next level to fundamental analysis and takes a completely different approach. It doesn’t care about the value of the company or commodity. It predicts the future of the shares through its current price movements in the market through charting. Charts are the basic elements of technical analysis. There are a variety of charts available, which will help a well-programmed web application to determine which direction a company will take in the future.
There are three types of charts— Candlestick chart, Line chart and Bar chart that represent the price data fluctuations caused by varying market forces. The information found in these charts enables a characteristics skilled in the science of technical analysis to draw trading signals for future price activity.
Candlestick chart is the oldest form of chart, originally developed in Japan, in which every bar looks like a candle and comprises of the four primary points: high, low, open and close. The candlestick is often considered easier to view than the other chart forms. Line chart is an original form of chart and is used primarily for its convenience in plotting price data over extremely long and short periods of time. Bar charts are similar to candlesticks; however, one of its disadvantages is the inability to plot the whole price fluctuation.
