Fundamental analysis is performed on historical and present data, but with the goal of making financial forecast. The data used in this analysis is; money policy, government policy and economic indicators. Some examples are GDP, exports and imports. The analysis of this data is for a specific business cycle.
Technical analysis is a security analysis technique that claims the ability to forecast the future direction of prices through the study of past market data, primarily price and volume. In its purest form, technical analysis considers only the actual price and volume behavior of the market or instrument. Technical analysts, sometimes called "chartists", may employ models and trading rules based on price and volume transformations.
Other data that can be incorporated into your trading analysis is; Interest Rates, International Trade, CPI - cost of living, PPI - cost of producing goods
GDP - measures the value of all goods produced in a country
M2 - Money Supply, which measures the total amount of currency of a country

Fundamental analysis involves studying statistics and news about the company and about the economy in general. It is worthless because company numbers are frequently cooked and they only come out once a quarter. Government statistics usually have a huge lag time, sometimes months after the time period in question.
Technical analysis looks at market information (price and volume) only. This is where true information is. Buy things that are going up and sell things that are going down.
Example: A CEO announces that profits will be up 20%. Fundamental investors will buy. At the end of the year, the CEO has all kinds of reasons why this didn't happen and the stock drops and fundamental investors got screwed. In reality, the CEO was pumping up the price so his friends and family could bail out. This selling forced the price down and showed up on the charts, so technical investors avoided the dog, or even made money shorting the stock.
Forex technical analysis is a learned skill and anyone with a desire to succeed to a motivation to learn can become successful at it, make a big forex profit and enjoy a great second income from home.

Good info... Your post is really useful for forex trading beginners..... Both Fundamental and technical analysis are equally important for forex traders.......
There are two major methods used to analyze and forecast the behavior of the Forex market - Technical (chart) analysis and Fundamental analysis.
Forex Fundamental analysis is a type of market analysis which involves studying of the economic situation of countries to trade currencies more effectively. Most FOREX traders rely on analysis to make plan their trading strategy. The other common form of analysis is technical analysis.
Both are distinct in their own ways, but on the other hand both are considered useful forecast tools for any Forex trader. They work towards the same goal - in predicting price or movement of currency in the forex market.
In technical (chart) analysis trader studies the effect while the fundamentalist studies are about the cause of market movement. The more successful forex traders have been seen to combine both types of analysis for results that are fine tuned further.
For me the technical analysis firstly seemed to be much easier, than fundamental. But after getting some trading experience, I found that the best option is to combine these 2 approaches
