Technical analysis

Technical analysis is a type of stock market analysis used to assess the current price and possible evolution of stocks and sectors.

Technical analysis involves the study of stock price graphs, as it understands that stock price reflects the other market elements.

Technical analysis looks at the price patterns of stocks on their graphs and postulates that stocks tend to repeat certain patterns of behavior at certain price ranges, among other things.

In addition to technical analysis, which involves the study of graphs, there is fundamental analysis, whichlooks at the accounts and financial statements of companies to determine their value.
