With price volatility at an all-time high, it is
becoming increasingly important for the investor to recognize patterns in the movements of
the stocks they own or are interested in purchasing. The interpretation of market activity
using technical analysis provides hints to the investor as it tries to
predict the future behavior of the stock price. Generally speaking, the technical investor will use a combination of price, volume
and time-sensitive technical indicators to place buy and sell signals and
maximize trading profits.
