Fundamental Analyst requires fact and figures from the Financial Statements and other information sources in order to determine a good investment opportunity. Technical analysis is very much the opposite, it does not take into consideration any of the fundamental indicators instead it considers the lagging or leading movement of a stock, charts and graphs, and other technical indicators to determine a good investment opportunity. Ironically, the most fundamentally sound share in the market may perhaps be the technically most unattractive investment or vice versa. Therefore the understanding of the difference between the two types of analysis is very important.
When a technical analyst present a list of shares we should not argue about the facts and figures, instead we should try to analyze and understand the charts and graphs presented by him to support his findings. If a technical analyst present a list of shares without the support of charts and graphs then it is not acceptable. This is similar to a fundamental Analyst presenting a list of shares without the support of PER, PBV and DPS valuation.
Any presentation regarding a potential price movement of a share without the support of credible analysis or information will not be tolerated by the forum and will be deleted without any warnings.
In order to avoid confusion between the two types of Analysis, we have created a separate forum for Chart and Graphs. Moderator Gann is in charge of that section. Those who are not familiar with such analysis should avoid visiting the said section of the forum.
