  • 6. Price Charts • Technical analysis uses data based on price and volume – data can be from a daily, weekly, monthly or even shorter timeframe (e.g. hour) – open, low, high, and close prices from the set timeframe e.g. one trading day or one trading week, and volume. • The data is presented in a chart • There are many different types of charts • We will look at 3 types of charts – line charts – bar chart – candlestick charts
  • 7. Price Charts The three charts on the following three slides are of the same stock over the same time period. 1st is a Line Chart 2nd is a Bar Chart 3rd is a Candlestick Chart Look at the difference in detail in each of the charts
  • 8. Line Chart Usually, based on the close price, cuts out the ‘noise’
  • 9. Bar Chart More detail, can see the open, high, low close so investor can get a ‘feel’ for sentiment
  • 10. Candle Chart More visual, easier for investor to see open, high, low close and sentiment
  • 11. Types of Charts Key Differences Line Chart - usually, based on the close price, cuts out the ‘noise’ Bar Chart – more detail, can see the open, high, low close so can get a ‘feel’ for sentiment Candlestick Chart – more visual, easier to see open, high, low close and sentiment
  • 12. Candlestick A candlestick is another way of looking at price data – more visual as filled in bars represent negative sentiment.
  • 13. Candle Patterns Candles can have names applied to them, however, you don’t need to learn them! It is more important to understand the price action that the candle represents and what it is saying about the buyers and the sellers. You might hear terms describing candles like Doji, Shooting Star, Hammer, Harami, Engulfing, Piercing, Hanging Man, Evening Star. Let’s look at a two examples and see what they mean for supply (sellers) and demand (buyers)
  • 14. Bullish Candle The candle shown here is a normal bullish candle. The body of the candle is not filled so we know that the price opened at the bottom of the body of the candle and closed at the top of the body. Sometime during the day, price traded to the bottom of the lower ‘wick’ or tail and to the top of the upper ‘wick’. From a supply and demand perspective, this candle is showing positive sentiment, buyers were prepared to pay more for this stock and pushed the price up so that it closed near the highs
  • 15. Doji Candle The candle shown here is called a Doji candle – this one has a special name, it is called a Gravestone doji. The price opened and closed at the same price so there is no body to this candle. During the trading period, buyers pushed the price up, but sellers came into the market and pushed the price back down so that the trading session closed on its lows. If this candle occurred after an uptrend, this could indicate a potential change in trend. A Gravestone doji is generally a bearish or negative sentiment candle.
  • 16. Candlestick Summary Learning about candles and using them on your charts can be a useful investing tool. Candles and candle patterns provide you with a visual representation of market psychology and sentiment. There are lots more types of candles and combinations of candles to make patterns. Do your own research to learn more!
  • 17. Candlestick Key Points to Remember • Length of body – long or short, what is it telling you? • Length of tails – or absence of tails, what does it mean? • Can suggest a possible change in trend Candlesticks shouldn’t be used in isolation to make buy and sell decisions BUT used with other ‘western’ technical tools they can add value to your investing ‘toolkit’.
  • 18. Trend Lines • Perhaps the simplest form of technical analysis • Markets are not random they often move in trends • And these trends can be marked on a chart by the drawing of trend lines
  • 19. Uptrend A series of higher highs and higher lows
  • 20. Downtrend, sideways & change of trend Downtrend – a series of lower highs and lower lows Change of trend – when a higher low is made and the previous high is surpassed
