To learn the future, study the past. That’s the simple idea behind the complex subject of technical analysis. Its practitioners, often called “chartists”, use mathematical formulas and visualizations on a price chart to study the performance of a given asset over time, then make buy or sell decisions based on history repeating itself. There are many technical analysis tools available which can be used on their own, in combination or as confirmation for our supply and demand trading strategy.

This course is designed for Individual Stock, ETFs and Index Futures traders to analyze the market's trends and behaviors in order to classify, distinguish and properly time their trades. You'll learn to determine the market’s overall direction and then take a position that is harmonious with the market. The curriculum will be focused around pure price-based technical analysis using the major indices as the forecasting instruments.

Suggested prerequisites: Any on-location course in stocks, options, futures or Forex.
