Why the MACD is an Essential Technical Analysis Tool
We’re often told that technical analysis is a waste of time.
Traders are often told to ignore it altogether.
“Technical analysis is fundamentally flawed,” says Forbes.
“Technical analysis is stupid,” blared The Motley Fool.
But it’s just not true. In fact, technical analysis is just as important as fundamental analysis.
Trading with the 50 Day and 200 Day Moving Averages
When it comes to technical analysis, one of the necessities for success is the moving average. In fact, for years, I’ve personally relied on two of them – the 50-day and even the 200-day moving averages.
Each is powerful because they give us a view of a stock’s trend, as well as a look at where we may find support and resistance along the way. For example, if I find a stock that historically bounces every time it hits its 50-day moving average, I’m likely to buy on a test of that moving average.
That’s because, as they say, the trend is your friend.
Technical Analysis: The Importance of Money Flow
When it comes to trading, one of the best ways to tell how strong or weak a stock may be is by paying attention to the Money Flow Index (MFI).
In its simplest terms, money flow is another momentum indicator that indicates strength of money flowing in and out of a stock. If the flow of money into the stock is weak, we’ll begin to see MFI trend down. But as money flows into a stock, we can see this happening when MFI trends up.
