Technical analysis

A method of evaluating securities by relying on the 

Assumption

 that 

Market

 data, such as charts of price, 

Volume

, and open 

Interest

, can help predict future (usually short-term) 

Market

 trends. Unlike fundamental analysis, the 

Intrinsic value

 of the security is not considered. Technical analysts believe that they can accurately predict the future price of a stock by looking at 

ITS

 historical prices and other 

Trading

 variables. Technical 

Analysis

 assumes that 

Market

 psychology influences 

Trading

 in a way that enables predicting when a stock will rise or fall. For that reason, many technical analysts are also 

Market timer

, who believe that technical 

Analysis

 can be applied just as easily to the 

Market

 as a whole as to an individual stock.
