Your Five Step Beginner’s Guide to Technical Analysis

In this five part video series Money Morning’s Shae Smith guides you through everything you need to know about technical analysis — so you can start using it as part of your investment toolkit today


Lesson 1: What is Technical Analysis?




In lesson one we explain exactly what technical analysis is, and cover some basic methods you can use to get started. You’ll discover how technical analysis is different to fundamental analysis, and learn about three different types of charts that technical analysts use.

Lesson 2: Support, Resistance and Trend Lines

In lesson one we introduced you to technical analysis. In lesson two we’ll expand on that by explaining support and resistance, and trend lines. Being able to use these simple charting tools is your first step to becoming a successful trader.

Lesson 3: Moving Averages, The MACD and More

In lesson three you’ll learn about moving averages, and the Moving Average Convergence Divergence. More commonly called the MACD. We’ll also teach you about the Relative Strength Index, and one of the most popular indicators used today, the Fibonacci retracement.

Lesson 4: Figuring Out When to Enter and Exit a Position

Over the past three videos, we’ve introduced you to technical analysis and some basic techniques, including trend lines, support and resistance, and Fibonacci. Now, you’ll discover how to use those techniques to determine a level to enter a position, and when to exit.

Lesson 5: Stop Losses and Take Profit Levels

In the final lesson, we’ll explain some important money management tools when it comes to trading. One of the most important things many investors and traders forget is setting exit prices for shares. This is important because a stock could always move against you, which would mean you end up losing money. So in this lesson you’ll learn why and how to set a stop loss and take profit level.
