  • Free Webinar: Technical Analysis - Powerful Tools For Timing Trade Entry And Exit 1 comment
    Jan 3, 2013 5:19 PM

    A free webinar will be presented this Wednesday, January 9 at 7:00 p.m. (EST), and will last approximately one hour.

    This is a valuable course for anyone interested in the basics. It is live and available to everyone simply by enrolling. The link to enroll is Technical Analysis Webinar

    This online course includes a Power Point presentation complete with numerous charts. A brief description:

    Technical analysis, when used properly, is a powerful tool that improves the timing of trade entry and exit. Employing the many skills involved - charting, interpretation, and confirmation - enables you to improve your overall trading skills.

    Technical analysis is a process of study focusing on price and related signals. These include volume, momentum, and moving averages. A technician is most likely to employ stock charts in the search for price patterns. The intention of this analysis is to identify price reversal points, so that timing of position entry and exit will be improved.

    This presentation introduces a range of tools associated with technical analysis in four primary areas:

    • Charts
      • Charts - the examples show how price is combined with other indicators, like MACD, RSI and Volume.
      • Scaling - The different scales of price affect the appearance of the chart.
      • Chartists and what they do.
      • Volatility and what it looks like on the chart.
      • Charts in relation to a stock's fundamentals.
    • Types of charts
      • There are three primary types - line charts, OHLC and candlesticks. This segment demonstrates how these function.
    • Chart properties
      • This third segment discusses both time scale and price scale and how these are set up on the chart.
    • Western technical analysis
      • This fourth segment includes examples of traditional technical analysis on the chart: Resistance and support; head and shoulders; tops and bottoms; flags and pennants; triangles and wedges; and gaps.

    This is the second live webinar presented by MetaStock, a Thomson Reuters Company, in cooperation with Ethan Hathaway. Again, the direct link to enroll in this FREE, live webinar is Technical Analysis Webinar
