MASTERING SHORT-TERM AND LONG-TERM TRADING
THROUGH TECHNICAL ANALYSIS
When you look at a forex chart the first time, it looks absolutely chaotic! It seems as if there are no set patterns in the market and as if it is moving in a mysterious and totally random way.
This apparent random movement may be very confusing for the new trader and may even result in huge losses if he tries to guess where the markets may be going and makes a mistake with the direction and turning points of the market.
People all over the world are trying to develop ways to predict market movements in a more certain way. They are all looking for the holy grail of trading - a way of trading that will help them to be consistently successful.

Technical Analysis is the art of using mathematical formulas and patterns in the market to predict possible movements before they happen.
Fortunately you do not have to be a maths-wizzard in order to become an expert in Technical Analysis. The computer does all the computing and mathematics for you and will draw lines on the screen in different places. By looking at these lines and patterns and by learning to interpret them in certain ways you will attempt make educated predictions on market movements.

Risk Disclosure: Trading foreign exchange on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with foreign exchange trading, and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
