Technical analysis for beginners: candles and patterns for stock market investing


I am a long term investor. Having said that, I have always taught the importance of technical analysis for investors. Fundamental analysis is the most important, but technical analysis can be leveraged for better entry and exit points. When using the average dollar cost, technical analysis can provide probabilities of support levels and buying opportunities.

I have been investing and trading for over 20 years, and have found that the techniques help me provide an excellent cost base for my long term investments. Of course, improving the entry points and cost base will dramatically improve long-term performance, and along with the lineup, this can have a significant impact on net worth. I believe technical analysis is the key to outperformance and financial freedom, and it is sadly overlooked by many long-term investors. That being said, this information will be useful to both traders and investors alike, so keep reading.
