Technical Analysis

The practice of using statistics to determine trends in security prices and make or recommend investment decisions based on those trends. Technical analysis does not attempt to determine the intrinsic value of securities, but instead focuses on matters such as trade volume, demand, and volatility. Technical analysts evaluate short-term trends almost exclusively, which is both a strength and a weakness in their analysis. They are sometimes called chartists because of the importance charts have in technical analysis. See also: Fundamental analysis.


The graphing of market variables, especially of stock prices and market averages. Technicians also chart other variables including commodity prices, interest rates, and trading volume in an attempt to determine trends and project future values. See also bar chart, candlestick chart, line chart, point-and-figure chart.
