All they need is a small statistical advantage, multiplied by repetitions and leverage. Whilst technical analysis of financial markets, such as Forex technical analysis, is popular in its own right, many traders use technical analysis in combination with fundamental analysis or sentiment analysis.
Technicians may excel and identifying and confirming trends, but it is the fundamental shifts that provide conditions for those trends to develop. Technical analysts use the method of Forex backtesting , also known as historical backtesting. This is a method utilised by traders that use historical data to test a trading strategy , which primarily relies on Forex technical analysis.
As with all statistical findings in any area of human activity, past data does not guarantee that the pattern or the probability will last. It is only a tool. The most important thing is to get started and to learn by practice. As technical analysis is the study of price charts, the first step in getting started is finding the best technical analysis software. The MetaTrader suite of trading platforms is regarded by many as the best software the trading world has to offer.
With Admiral Markets, both demo and live account holders, have free access to the following MetaTrader trading software:. Whilst users can access all this technical analysis software by opening a demo or live trading account, there are some differences between the different platforms. For example, the MetaTrader 4 platform has been the go-to platform for Forex technical analysis traders for many years. The MetaTrader 5 platform offers traders the chance to use their technical analysis skills on a higher number of markets, such as stocks, indices and commodities.
Both these platforms and WebTrader already have specific technical analysis tools in them, which we will cover in more detail later in the article. MetaTrader 4 is an elite trading platform that offers traders a range of exclusive benefits such as multi-language support, advanced charting capabilities, automated trading, the ability to fully customise and change the platform to suit your individual trading preferences, free real-time charting, trading news, technical analysis and so much more!
In the following sections, we will look at the four different types of technical analysis tools you can use to your advantage. We will then learn how to apply technical analysis for different markets such as Forex, Stocks, Indices, Commodities and Cryptocurrencies.
The four different types of technical analysis tools are:. It is recommended you download your MetaTrader platform, so that you can follow through on the technical analysis examples below. The first consideration on your path to becoming a technical analyst, is to decide which chart type to perform your technical analysis on. Whether it is stock market or Forex technical analysis, the same chart type can be used across different markets. Chart types include line, bar and candlestick.
Once you've downloaded your MetaTrader technical analysis software, you can switch between these different chart types by right clicking on an open chart and selecting from the three different options. Date Range: 21 May - 3 September A line chart simply connects the closing prices of the timeframe you are viewing. For example, when viewing a daily chart the line will connect the closing price of each trading day. Whether you are employing stock market or Forex technical analysis, traders mainly use line charts to identify long-term trends as it is the most basic type of chart available.
For example, when looking at the daily chart, each vertical bar represents one trading day. The bar chart presents much more information than the line chart. It shows us the open, high, low and close price values of the specific timeframe. Charts such as the OHLC bar chart help technical analysts identify whether buyers or sellers are in control of the market. Candlestick charts were first used by Japanese rice traders in the 18th century and they are the most popular type of chart for Forex technical analysis.
Similar to OHLC bars, candles also show the open, high, low and close values of a chosen time period. The major difference is that the candles have a box between the open and close price values known as the 'body' of the candle which is coloured in, usually either red or green. Here, red indicates that the close price is lower than the open price, with green indicating the opposite.
Many traders find candlesticks charts the most visually appealing, which is one of the reasons they are so popular in Forex technical analysis. The MetaTrader trading software comes with a wide variety of technical analysis tools, that can be used to help identify chart patterns. They include drawing tools such as:. These can be found by selecting 'Insert' in the top menu, then 'Objects'. For example, let's take the popular technical analysis tool, the Equidistant Channel, which can be accessed as shown below:.
Once this tool is selected, the user simply needs to connect the swing highs, or swings lows, of a price to draw in their channel pattern. This can be done by:. In the example below, you can see an ascending channel pattern and a sideways channel pattern, highlighted using this technical analysis tool. Date Range: 8 March - 3 September There are many types of different chart patterns used by traders in their technical analysis.
Sometimes what is best depends on the market being traded, for example, some chart patterns work better with Forex technical analysis, whilst others may be preferable for stock market technical analysis. This will be covered in more detail later in the article. When it comes to candlestick charts, there are many different patterns which are used by traders in their technical analysis.
Before we go through examples of patterns formed by candlesticks, let'e take a look at the two different types of candlestick. If you are viewing the daily timeframe in your price chart, then the above candles would each represent a full day's worth of trading and provides us with a lot of useful information, such as:. This information can then be used, along with other technical analysis tools, to start building a picture of the market condition and the possible scenarios of what could happen next.
For example:. There are a variety of different candle formations that are used in candlestick trading. One such pattern is called the Shooting Star:. The Shooting Star pattern is a bearish signal which suggests a higher probability of the market moving lower than higher. In this pattern, the buyers push the market to a new high but fail to hold price there.
Some buyers exit their long position, causing the market to fall lower, leading sellers to step into the market. Traditionally, the open and close of the candle body should be in the lower half of the candle. In the majority of cases above, the market did indeed go lower but in some cases, it went higher instead.
A technical analyst would also draw upon other tools to build a complete picture on the market condition and identify possible areas to enter and exit.

Technical analysis indicators are programmed with different formulas using the open, high, low and close price values of a specific time period. While most indicators are particularly popular in Forex technical analysis, volume indicators are more suited to markets which trade on an exchange due to the trading volume being the primary source of data for those indicators.
Studies of the total traded volume are helpful to financial traders in the stock market, the futures market and the commodity market as the buy and sell prices from these markets go through one central exchange like the London Stock Exchange or Chicago Mercantile Exchange. The Forex spot market is traded OTC Over-The-Counter so the total volume will be different from broker to broker depending on which banks and hedge funds they get their pricing feed from. This means that, for the Forex market, the technical indicators which use volume are only using a portion of the total volume.
How much of the data is representative is up for debate. With such a wide variety of technical analysis indicators available, which ones to use may seem daunting at first. But don't worry! We will be exploring the most commonly used indicators for different markets later on in the article. Immersing yourself in the trading world can help to accelerate your trading training and implementation of technical analysis in real-time situations. Seeing how professional traders view the markets can give you the confidence to go away, analyse and trade the market yourself using chart patterns and indicators.

Now that you know more about chart patterns, candle patterns and indicators, let's take a look at applying technical analysis on a range of different markets, all of which are available to trade on with Admiral Markets.
The high liquidity of the Forex market attracts all types of traders, from scalpers to swing traders. Forex technical analysis is widely used by many of these different participants in the market. Let's have a look at one of the types of momentum indicators mentioned earlier and how it can be used in Forex technical analysis. The Stochastic Oscillator is a very popular and widely used momentum indicator. It can be used to identify potential turning points in the market.
So how is the Stochastic Oscillator used in Forex technical analysis? While there are many ways it can be utilised, the most common use is to identify overbought and oversold markets. From this point, some traders may choose to wait for the lines to cross down below the 80 level and place an order to sell in anticipation the market will fall.
To place an order to sell, traders can either:. Once the trading ticket opens, traders can then input their trade details such as the type of order, volume, entry price, stop-loss and so on. Typically, traders will use the previous bar high and low values for entry price levels and stop-loss levels.
Once the trader is happy with their trade values, clicking the 'place' button will create a live order. The trading levels will now show as horizontal lines on the chart:. Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum are newer markets that are now widely available to trade on.
In fact, with Admiral Markets you can trade on cryptocurrencies against the Euro 24 hours a day, seven days a week! While it is a newer market, cryptocurrency technical analysis still works well in the right market conditions. This is because chart patterns are still created from the buying and selling activity of traders in the market. With cryptocurrency technical analysis, traders can use chart patterns, candlestick patterns or indicators. This is because it is a volatility indicator and the cryptocurrency market is highly volatile.
To place the ATR indicator on your MetaTrader technical analysis software chart, follow these steps:. Date Range: 18 January - 3 September Cryptocurrency traders using technical analysis would use this to identify periods of high volatility and periods of low volatility to help with placing stop-loss levels and take-profit levels. In times of high volatility, when the ATR is higher than usual or increasing, it means the daily bars are getting larger.
Some traders may decide to go to the lower timeframes to capitalise on this volatility. Conversely, in times of low volatility, when the ATR is lower than usual or falling, it means the daily bars are getting smaller. This in turn means traders may have to sit in trades for longer before they reach their target levels.
Traditionally, stock market traders and investors have used fundamental analysis on whether to buy shares in a company.
