RRWB Back to Basics 2 - Basic Technical Analysis

Dan Caldwell, author of this series will share over one decade's worth of investment insight gleaned from a micro view of working outside of Wall Street for capital gain and income. 

  • Common Chart Patterns - Triangles, Head & Shoulders, Positive/Negative Divergence
  • Sentiment Indicators - RSI, MACD, ADX, ROC, Stoch, etc.
  • Support & Resistance - Including Why Support & Resistance Works
  • Candlestick Reversal Patterns - DOJI, Hanging Man, Fireflies, etc.

Using technical analysis is more for traders than for investors, and in today's environment of High Frequency computer algorithems driven markets attendees need to understand that these same computerized trading systems, that initiated the 2011 "Flash Crash" that knocked the DJIA down 1,000 pts. in 5 minutes, are also capable of "painting the chart" and giving false signals. 

However, an astute investor, capable of identifying undervalued companies through Fundamental Analysis (April 2012), can use technical analysis to acquire/sell the same stocks at optimum entry and exit points.
