Technical Analysis Stock Chart

Technical analysis scrutinizes equities based on past measurements like asset price and trading volume, which give a view of past performance and stock trends.

Investors should pay close attention to an equity’s direction, speed and distance throughout a technical analysis review. Is the price traveling in an upward or downward direction? What speed is the price moving at? Lastly, what distance will the price travel in a given direction?
