More Fundamentalists Are Embracing Technical Analysis
In the early days of Technical Analysis, fundamentalists scoffed at the Technical Analysts who claimed that everything about a stock was right there in the stock chart. Price and how it moved was all that really mattered. Fundamentalists argued back that the movement of stocks was a Random Walk or that Technical Analysis was like using a crystal ball rather than corporate financials.
Now fundamentalists are showing more interest in Technical Analysis, due to the NEW Fundamental Data Indicators. These convert fundamentals into a graphical form that is easy to study, analyze, and use WITH technical indicators. However many of the old school Technical Analysts are scoffing at these indicators as not “Pure Technical Analysis.” This is a rather sad turn of events. All Technical Traders should be excited and embrace any additional data that can be incorporated into stock charts to make choosing stock picks faster, more reliable, and more profitable.
Stock chart indicators can transform data into histograms or lines to make it easier to see what is going on. Whether data is Price, Time, and Quantity OR if it is Percent Shares Held by Institutions, Earnings Per Share Percent Change, and Revenue Growth Rate as fundamental line indicators should be a bonus.
This is the basis of what we call Relational Technical Analysis™ and it is the evolution of Technical Analysis.
The chart example #1 below has 3 new Histogram Fundamental Indicators. This is a monthly view chart example with Percent Shares Held by Institutions, Earnings Per Share Percent Change, and Revenue Growth Rate Indicators.
