As Traders, it’s important to have tools to help you to determine which direction the market is heading.

When we can form a view of direction, we can then identify trading opportunities and choose a strategy to help profit from the movement.

To do this, we use Technical Analysis. Technical analysis is the interpretation of the signals the market gives us, such as patterns, trends and price movements.

Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced trader, coming to terms with technical analysis is an essential part of your trading plan.
