Know different importance of fundamental analysis vs technical analysis to succeed in the forex market
While fundamental analysis tries to estimate the value of an asset, technical analysis does not care at all about determining its underlying value. Technical analysis just looks at the charts; you can concentrate solely on price movements. Simply put, technical analysis focuses on the supply and demand in the market to decipher what will happen next. If you’re going to rely on technical analysis, make sure you understand the very basics very well. Once you know the basics, you’re already set to start recognizing formations and will be able to use technical patterns to trade currencies.
Which Should You Use?
A well-informed trade in any market requires a combination of both fundamental and technical analysis. The question is to what extent you should rely on each. How many factors should you take into account? How deep should you dig into either? Which holds more weight? If one reveals optimism and the other pessimism, which should you rely on? When you figure out the answer to these questions, which may vary for each currency pair or stock or whatever you’re trading, you will be able to answer an even bigger question: what kind of trader are you and what is your overall strategy?
Either way, one thing is for sure: it is impossible to predict market movement, and choosing one while totally ignoring the other can be a very costly mistake or recipe for disaster. Employing both strategies is your best option. For instance, if use fundamental analysis to find an undervalued currency, you should then utilize technical analysis to determine the best time to purchase that currency. You can gain more from the investment in the currency if you purchase it when the currency is being oversold.
There are many services out there that have their own strategies and algorithms based on fundamentals or technicals or a combination of both, and some are more proven and successful than others. If you decide to use a service, be sure to do research on all the available options.
You will need to stay open-minded and recognize that your strategy will change and sometimes you need to re-evaluate. The time of season may also affect your decisions – for example, fundamental analysis, which depends heavily on financial statements, may be more influential around earnings season, whereas technical analysis may be more appropriate in determining how the season/month of the year typically influences currencies or stock prices.
