Spotting a Reversal: Technical Analysis Primer
BALTIMORE (Stockpickr) -- If you've been exposed to the main ideas behind technical analysis, you already know that trend is one of the cornerstones of technical trading. Studies have shown that prices move in trends -- and that following those trends is one of the most effective ways to significantly grow your portfolio.
But trends ultimately fail, leaving latecomers holding the bag for those who were prescient (or lucky) enough to get out early. The key to being one of the latter is to spot reversals early.
Of course, as with most stock trading tactics, spotting reversals is much easier said than done. Today, we'll take a look at some tools that can help you spot reversals early and spare your portfolio from losses.
