TA or something you don't know about.

What is TA?
Technically, it is a market analysis based on data coming into the exchange terminal.
That is, it is usually a standard price formula for a bar (OHLC), volumes and ticks (only ticks for Forex), open interest (for options), the cup, the current volumes of supply and demand for the instrument and some others, which will not be considered here.
These, as you will say, are already known. Not really. There are two main frictions with the public here:
1. Many people only call TA what is included as indicators in their trading terminal. But, say, neuro-systems are not. Or, for example, FFT makes people feel that they have looked beyond what is provided to them for observation.
Or TA only what was pre-19X. Archaeologists, my ass.))
No. The definition is perfectly clear. TA is anything that uses your terminal's quote stream for analysis, which requires no linguistic parsing.
No news, no predictions from rabid analysts on CNBC, RBC and other porn channels, no opinions from forum authorities etc.
2. Another point, which is more likely from illiteracy (just do not know the meaning of the word - analysis). TA is understood by some as a system of predictions. This is CATEGORICALLY not so!
Let me explain. The tools of analysis exist not to predict, but to understand what is happening and what a skilled observer can do about it. Now here is what to do.
Examples. The thermometer, speedometer, caliper are all analytical tools and they in no way guarantee you : reaching thermal death, increasing penis size and reaching 2nd cosmic speed.

So - let's agree at the outset! - To say that TA doesn't work is to sign away your complete inadequacy and trolleymania. // I don't believe the ruler's readings!!! )))

I hope the terminological and methodological principles are clear enough for there to be a follow up.

The sequel, however, will be this:
Before engaging in the game, it's a good idea to understand what the game is all about? Or, to put it another way, what is the context? That's what TA is for. Let's go into more detail...

To be cntd...

That's where I'll start next time...

What is TA?


ANALYSIS (from Greek analysis - decomposition) is a method of scientific research (cognition) of phenomena and processes, which is based on the study of the components, elements of the system under study.

PROgnosis (from Greek prógnōsis - foresight, prediction) is a scientifically justified hypothesis about the likely future state of an economic system and economic objects and the indicators characterizing this state.

The result of understanding the past and current situation is conclusions about the likely future state.

When saying "TA" it is hardly right NOT to mean "prediction".

Chartists - chartists. The related term is technical analysts.

thanks for the topic, I'm looking forward to continuing

And this is your problem. Imply further, and then do not read. Why do you want to? )))


Did I say anything about prediction? Not at all.))

It is YOU who constantly talk about prognosis without bothering to understand what is going on.

Troll +1!

Technical analysis is the analysis of securities for the purpose of identifying and predicting price trends based on statistical data. Technical analysis generates signals on the advisability of buying or selling certain securities.

p.s. Just in the context of your post - one might consider the term TA to be not entirely a good one.

Wow. This is an authority! ))) Shame on me! Shame! ))))

Don't be ridiculous.

TA is when a thermometer measures temperature, a speedometer measures speed and a caliper measures size, not the other way around.

The term TA as you understand it is not just unfortunate, but totally disastrous! Firstly, it is semantically incorrect, and secondly, it puts people who understand it that way - as a prognosis - in a complete financial bind.

However, if you are more interested in being a guest of a fairy tale - don't read me. I am evil. I'm dropping from the sky under the plinth.

Well then, as a consistent spokesman for the bazaar, we'll be waiting for you to continue. Let's have a laugh ))))
