About the Course Set

Technical Analysis is a research technique that is used for identifying opportunities in the market which depends on market participants’ actions. The actions of market participants can be analysed by the technical charts, indicators and patterns.

Chart patterns often signal transitions between rising and falling trends. A price pattern is a recognizable configuration of price movement identified using a series of trendlines and/or curves. When a price pattern signals a change in trend direction, it is known as a reversal pattern; a continuation pattern occurs when the trend continues in its existing direction following a brief pause.

These chart patterns are formed within these technical charts and convey a certain message. Individual investors need to identify these patterns and make investments decisions.

There are many patterns used by individuals to identify the trade and participants in the market. In this program we have cover some of the most popular Technical Indictors and Chart Patterns with some live cases studies.

10 Technical Analysis Strategies

Bollinger Band Indicator - Describe the liquidity and activity of Options and Futures contracts

01 Bollinger Band Indicator

Course Duration: 1 HRS

A Bollinger Band is a technical analysis tool defined by a set of trendlines plotted two standard deviations (positively and negatively) away from a simple moving average (SMA) of a security's price, but which can be adjusted to user preferences. Bollinger Bands are a highly popular technique. Many traders believe the closer the prices move to the upper band, the more overbought the market, and the closer the prices move to the lower band, the more oversold the market.
Bollinger Bands were designed to discover opportunities that give investors a higher probability of properly identifying when an asset is oversold or overbought.

Key Takeaways

  • Bollinger Bands are a technical analysis tool developed by John Bollinger for generating Oversold or Overbought Signals.
  • Three lines compose Bollinger Bands: A simple moving average (middle band) and an upper and lower band.
  • The upper and lower bands are typically 2 standard deviations +/- from a 20-day simple moving average (which is the centre line), but they can be modified.
  • When the price continually touches the upper Bollinger Band, it can indicate an overbought signal while continually touching the lower band indicates an oversold signal.

02 Usage of Scanners - Equity Selection

Course Duration: 1:28 HRS

Stock scanners are screening tools that search markets to discover stocks that meet a set of user-defined metrics and criteria for investing and trading.
The learner can modify stock scanners to detect the best fitting candidates that meet their set filters. A stock scanner can go through tons of stocks almost instantly to find the best matches to their exact criteria. This streamlines the time-consuming and energy-draining task of finding new trading opportunities, making the process more efficient.
The learner can learn how to use a technical stock scanner to find stocks that make all-time highs on significantly high trading volumes. The learner can also get any other information they need and get every stock that meets their defined criteria quickly.

03 Trading with Momentum Indicators

Course Duration: 2:05 HRS

Momentum indicators are technical analysis tools used to determine the strength or weakness of a stock's price. Momentum measures the rate of the rise or fall of stock prices. Common momentum indicators include the relative strength index (RSI) and moving average convergence divergence (MACD).
Moving Average - A moving average is a statistic that captures the average change in a data series over time. In finance, moving averages are often used by technical analysts to keep track of price trends for specific securities.
RSI - RSI measures the speed and magnitude of a security's recent price changes to evaluate overvalued or undervalued conditions in the price of that security.

04 Fibonacci Retracement Levels

Course Duration: 1:43 HRS

Fibonacci retracements can be used to place entry orders, determine stop-loss levels, or set price targets. Fibonacci retracement levels—stemming from the Fibonacci sequence—are horizontal lines that indicate where support and resistance are likely to occur. Each level is associated with a percentage. The percentage is how much of a prior move the price has retraced.

Key Takeaways:

  • Fibonacci retracement levels connect any two points that the trader views as relevant, typically a high point and a low point.
  • The percentage levels provided are areas where the price could stall or reverse.
  • The most commonly used ratios include 23.6%, 38.2%, 50%, 61.8%, and 78.6%.
  • These levels should not be relied on exclusively, so it is dangerous to assume the price will reverse after hitting a specific Fibonacci level.
  • Fibonacci numbers and sequencing were first used by Indian mathematicians centuries before Leonardo Fibonacci.

                        price targets

RSI divergence - Evaluate Overvalued and Undervalued conditions

05 RSI divergence

Course Duration: 0:33 HRS

The relative strength index (RSI) is a momentum indicator used in technical analysis. RSI measures the speed and magnitude of a security's recent price changes to evaluate overvalued or undervalued conditions in the price of that security.
An RSI divergence occurs when the price moves in the opposite direction of the RSI. In other words, a chart might display a change in momentum before a corresponding price change. A bullish divergence occurs when the RSI displays an oversold reading followed by a higher low that appears with lower lows in the price.
The RSI can do more than point to overbought and oversold securities. It can also indicate securities that may be primed for a trend reversal or corrective pullback in price. It can signal when to buy and sell. Traditionally, an RSI reading of 70 or above indicates an overbought situation. A reading of 30 or below indicates an oversold condition.

Key Takeaways:

  • The RSI provides technical traders with signals about bullish and bearish price momentum, and it is often plotted beneath the graph of an asset’s price.
  • An asset is usually considered overbought when the RSI is above 70 and oversold when it is below 30.
  • The RSI line crossing below the overbought line or above the oversold line is often seen by traders as a signal to buy or sell.
  • The RSI works best in trading ranges rather than trending markets.

06 Price action and Volume

Course Duration: 1:37 HRS

The Volume and Price Action Trading Strategy helps the learner to analyze their trade properly. It helps to understand when to execute a trade and when to take the positions based on volume and price action. Volume is added (starting with an arbitrary number) when the market finishes higher, or volume is subtracted when the market finishes lower. Price Volume action and how it helps us to make better decisions around screening and as an early warning indicator for our investing decisions.
PRICE and VOLUME are two fundamental building blocks of all the transactions that happen on the stock market. And most importantly they leave a footprint on transactions of all market participants and indirectly their behaviour and decision points.

Key Takeaways:

  • Price action generally refers to the changes in a security's price over time.
  • The strong volume moves at key price points are often used by active traders to identify key areas of support and resistance and can generate strategic buying/selling signals when combined with other indicators.
 Price action and Volume - Early warning Indicator for Investing decisions

Swing Trading Strategy - Holding a position either Long or Short for more than one Trading Session

07 Swing Trading Strategy

Course Duration: 1:48 HRS

Swing trading is a style of trading that attempts to capture short- to medium-term gains in a stock (or any financial instrument) over a period of a few days to several weeks. Swing traders primarily use technical analysis to look for trading opportunities. Typically, swing trading involves holding a position either long or short for more than one trading session, but usually not longer than several weeks or a couple of months. This is a general time frame, as some trades may last longer than a couple of months, yet the trader may still consider them swing trades. Swing trades can also occur during a trading session, though this is a rare outcome that is brought about by extremely volatile conditions.
Swing traders may utilize fundamental analysis in addition to analysing price trends and patterns.

Key Takeaways:

  • Swing trading involves taking trades that last a couple of days up to several months to profit from an anticipated price move.
  • Swing trading exposes a trader to overnight and weekend risk, where the price could gap and open the following session at a substantially different price.
  • Swing traders can take profits utilizing an established risk/reward ratio based on a stop loss and profit target, or they can take profits or losses based on a technical indicator or price action movements.

    08 Volume and Open Interest

    Course Duration: 1:53 HRS

    Volume and open interest are two key technical metrics that describe the liquidity and activity of options and futures contracts. "Volume" refers to the number of contracts traded in each period, and "Open Interest" denotes the number of contracts that are active, or not settled. Here, we examine these two metrics and offer tips for how the learner can use them to understand trading activity in the derivatives markets.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Volume and open interest both describe the liquidity and activity of options and futures contracts.
    • Volume refers to the number of trades completed each day and is an important measure of strength and interest in a particular trade.
    • Open interest reflects the number of contracts that are held by traders and investors in active positions, ready to be traded.
    • Volume reflects a running total throughout the trading day, and open interest is updated just once per day.
    • Traders use changes in volume and open interest to gauge the liquidity of the market and to anticipate price movements.

    Sentiment Indicators - Forecast Investors future behaviour

    09 Sentiment Indicators

    Course Duration: 1:46 HRS

    A sentiment indicator is designed to represent how a group feels about the market or economy. These market psychology-based indicators attempt to quantify sentiment, in the form of figures or graphically, to predict how current beliefs and positions may affect future market behaviour. Sentiment indicators look at how bullish or bearish market actors are and what they are thinking and feeling, which may help forecast investors future behaviour. When sentiment readings are unusually high or low, they may begin acting in a contrarian way. For example, when investors are extremely bearish, that is often a contrary signal to sentiment indicator traders that market prices could start heading higher soon.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Sentiment indicators gauge market psychology in the form of investor or consumer behaviour and beliefs that may influence the market.
    • When a sentiment indicator is moving in the same direction as what it is analysing, that typically helps confirm that trend.
    • Extreme readings on a sentiment indicator may cause some traders to take a contrarian view; for example, "buy when there is fear, sell when there is greed."
    • Sentiment indicators are used to analyse trends, assets, and the economy from the perspective of the participants involved, instead of just looking at an asset or data point isolation.

    10 Index Trading Strategy

    Course Duration: 1:37 HRS

    An index is a method to track the performance of a group of assets in a standardized way. Indexes typically measure the performance of a basket of securities intended to replicate a certain area of the market.
    These could be constructed as a broad-based index that captures the entire market, such as the Nifty 500 Index or Nifty IT, or more specialized such as indexes that track a particular industry or segment such as the Nifty Small 100 Index, which tracks only small-cap stocks.

    Key Takeaways:

    • An index measures the price performance of a basket of securities using a standardized metric and methodology.
    • Indexes in financial markets are often used as benchmarks to evaluate an investment's performance.
    • Some of the most important indexes in the U.S. markets are the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average.
    • Benchmarking investment strategy against the appropriate index is key to understanding a portfolio's performance.
