Technical Trader

A person who uses technical analysis to make investment decisions. Technical traders use statistics to determine trends in security prices, and decide to buy or sell based on those trends. These traders do not attempt to determine the intrinsic value of securities, but instead focus on matters such as trade volume, demand, and volatility. Technical traders often evaluate short-term trends almost exclusively, which has both positive and negative consequences for their analysis.
