Default Fundamental vs. Technical Analysis



here is a link to an article that I wrote that contrasts these two different methods of analysis.

There is obviously more to it all. I'm not much of a fundamentalist, but if you have any technical questions, post them in the T.A. part of this board

Thanks.

My first method of analysis is T.A. That is basically my way of screening for potential earners. Then I sift more through comparing what has the strongest buy or sell signals through using T.A. Then I also incorporate some very basic fundamental knowledge into the final analysis i.e. the quality, news, expectations, my own reasoning, politics, war, that sort of stuff.
Although I am a technician, it does not hurt to use fundamental as well. I don't think too strongly about using either one or the other, but never both.

Exclamation is it neccesary to see company fundamental for short term trading?

hi alchemist,
from last few days i am reading u r post,that r really a master explainer.
i usually prefer short term trading,i trade on basis of technical analysis.and in mid and small caps for 1 to 3 weeks and take out small profits regularly.
is it necessary to see a company fundamental if chart showing buy signal and for short term?
can u explain me what is EPS,ANN. EPS GR%,ANN.SALES GR%,PEG,CURRENT RATIO,QUICK RATIO,DEBT/EQUITY.
and how they inter-related?
i am not getting fundamental analysis due to these parameters..

if you are trading for the short-term, you need not bother about the fundamentals.

fundamentals chance much slower than stock prices in the short-term.

see http://investopedia.com/

it explains all basic terms related to investing.

Usually, the stocks of smaller companies are more volatile and thus difficult to trade.

There is no harm in investing in small or mid caps.

You must be sure about why you are buying these stocks.

If you are an investor, but stocks for value and not because they are moving up or fallen too much.

If you are a trader, be a trader and maintain stop-loss for all trades.

If you are confident about your analysis (technical or fundamental) of a stock, then you should surely take a position.
