What is Technical Analysis?

In our first video lesson about technical analysis our trading expert David Jones explains the very basics of analysing charts. He focuses our attention on the fundamentals of understanding what we see on a chart and the patterns that govern its movements.

The three main patterns are price action, trends and history repeating itself at specific levels that have been seen before. David discusses all three and lays the foundations for the next video lessons that will dissect them in theory and in real examples from the most traded instruments.
