Fundamental Analysis

Fundamental analysis is one of the true cornerstones of investing and it can be applied to all asset classes. It looks at what causes price to move up or down and uses this to anticipate and profit from future price moves. It can be used to analyze a national economy by examining areas like gross domestic product, employment, inflation and the monetary policy of a central bank. It can be used to analyze an individual company by examining its financial statements like assets, liabilities and earnings as well as its management and competition.

Fundamental analysis can also be applied to whole industries by examining the drivers of supply and demand. There are many different fundamental trading and investment strategies and most of them try to determine the fair value of an instrument by analyzing the underlying drivers of price. If the current market price of an instrument differs significantly from this fair value, it will eventually gravitate towards it, as long as none of the fundamental drivers change.

Entry order for AMAT at $44. We've seen two dojo bars hold the 100ma with a break higher today. The volume isn't as high as I would like to see, however, the financials look strong and in my opinion the semi conductor industry will only continue to grow. Sl 40 Tp 50

This trade doesn't fit my usual criteria, however, the potential upside outweighs potential risk. Price is holding the 200ma, volume is low, however with positive news, earnings, director dealings and increase in fund purchases I don't think it will be long until we hit 70p. Worth a buy on a break of today's high. Tp 70 Sl 35 This is not a trade ...

We've had 2 leg touches on the GBP/JPY - both seemingly at the price level of 146.340 - We're still waiting for the 3rd leg touch before we get a massive rejection as there's a lot of sellers at this time on the GBP due to instability in the UK because of the Brexit - We've had some positive news today from the UK, it's had an economic growth of 0.3% but that ...

Fundamentally USD is gaining strength back and it will strengthen due to rate hike expectation. CAD is more of a bearish mode due to total economic condition and also due to plunging in oil price. Technically this also gives us a great opportunity to go long. I'm looking into Daily chart with Heikin Ashi candle. The price action is about to reverse from 1.3200 ...
