you can also think of fundamental analysis is the cause and the technical analysis as the effect. technicians believe that everything fundamentally, psychologically, or whatever may affect the stock price is displayed on charts. technicians believe that studying technical analysis is like a shortcut then rather studying fundamentals. i look at both, but then again they sometimes contradict each other..also, fundamentals are more long-term - you study their annual balance sheets and decide if it's a good investment...technical analysis is more short term- you can just look at a daily chart and using their indicators, you can decide if a stock is worth holding for a couple days to take some quick profits

Re: What is Technical and Fundamental Analysis?

I read somewhere that fundamentals determine price action while technicals express it. Something to that effect. But in terms of which analysis works best, it's tough to tell. I personally am biased towards fundamentals but then "history tends to repeat itself" so I make use of technical analysis as well.

Re: What is Technical and Fundamental Analysis?

Fundamental analysis is based on looking at external factors that can affect the performance of a company, commodity or currency. These factors can range from anything from a company having a large investment in company that is set to be liquidated, to political issues. This often makes it difficult to conduct research based on fundamental analysis because the factors are generally outside the control of the traders or the stock market.

I think it is necessary to use both types of analysis and watch what more profitable in the process.

That is to say, that all factors which have an effect on the price have already been considered by the market and are thus reflected in the price.

Different people use different approaches to markets, someone might tell you that fundamentals are the key, another will tell you that technicals are the key, don't listen to either one. Devise your own strategy.

How can we combine TA & FA in trading? Support with FA, we know the price would go up but TA tell the opposite, how do we decide?

TA short term. FA long term.
