What is technical analysis?

Used by finance professionals, technical analysis looks at past market data to make predictions about future performance. Analysts use these indicators to make sense of price movements, predict timelines, and understand market volatility.

The patterns uncovered through technical analysis can provide clues as to how certain financial products will perform. This active management technique is designed to give advisers the information they need to make decisions for their clients, organizations, and themselves. The more correct technical analysts are about future price changes, the better they can manage wealth for all stakeholders. Modern technology helps to make those predictions more accurate than ever before.
