Fundamental vs. Technical Analysis
Fundamentals vs. Technicals
Fundamental analysis is the study of a company's intrinsic value, the Warren Buffet approach to investing. Technical analysis assumes that the intrinsic value is already represented by the value of the stock, and instead focuses on statistical analysis.
You can avoid some common pitfalls by making sure you always trade with a plan, build in some form of risk control in to your trading strategy, and never trade emotionally.
I will touch upon how a typical investor makes decisions during up-swings and down-swings.
Do you want to be a day trader, swing trader, position trader, or traditional investor?
In this lecture, I will show you how to use pivot points to plan your next trade.
Pivot points create levels of support and resistance that can then be used to help mitigate risk.
Prices at whole, round numbers often act as support & resistance.
Trends, Trend Lines, Life Cycle of a Trend, & Gaps.

Stage 1: Consoldifation
Stage 2: Breakout

Answer key to the previous lecture.
Whenever you come across a stock chart, you should be able to idetify at least one of the 4 stages.
In this lecture, we will talk about common gaps, runaway gaps, and breakaway gaps.
Gaps are caused by news, earnings, analyst upgrades & downgrades, or other market events.
Candlesticks & Average True Rating (ATR)
The candlestick technique of charting was started by the Japanese to track the prices of commities.

Let's get started with Average True Rating (ATR).
In this lecture, we will add the ATR to the chart of a stock, and compare two stocks to determin their personality.
Let's take a look at a few more ATR examples, and learn how to calculate our buy & sell price.
Valuable Technical Indicators for Determining When to Buy & Sell Stock
If the markets have made a strong price move either up or down, then the perceived strength of that move depends on the volume for that particular period.
In this lecture, we will take a look at some charts that illustrate this idea of buying and selling pressures.
There are simple and exponential moving averages. Simple moving averages are evenly weighted, therefore every period carries the same weight. Exponential moving averages place more weight on recent price action, which reduces the lag.
We will take a look at up trends, down trends, and bullish/bearish crossovers.
20-, 50-, and 200-day moving averages are most popular to represent month, quarter, and year of the stock.
You can think of technical indicators like going to get get a second opinion from a doctor.
Let's identify where a buy/sell signal occurs when looking at MACD signals.
The RSI compares the magnitude of a stock's recent gains to the magnitude of it's recent losses.
In this lecture we will cover overbought sell signals, oversold buy signals, and RSI combined with price action setups.

If you are a "buy & hold" investor proper diversification is key to maintaining a healthy portfolio.
When position sizing, you should ask yourself 4 questions:
- What is the size of your portfolio?
- How much a of a loss would be too big?
- What are your normalized numbers?

Let's take a look at some additional position sizing examples.
