Technical analysis is a way to assess a stock security based on its price history and other market indicators.

Those doing technical analysis try to predict a security’s future movement based on factors such as price changes, trends and the volume of trades. Unlike fundamental analysis, technical analysis does not try to determine the intrinsic value of a company. Rather, it uses graphics and other tools to predict the future price of its stock. Technical analysts believe that historical performance of stocks and markets is an indication of future performance.

Technical analysts use a variety of indicators to estimate the future movement of stock prices. These indicators include moving averages, moving average convergence/divergence (MACD) indicators, historical trade volume, and more.
