Want 3 important techniques on how to use technical analysis for trading?
It's important you understand that almost all traders know the basics of technical analysis; therefore, it will not give you any great edge in the markets.
Let me explain, there is no holy grail out there and no trading strategy will always work, and you will not earn money to simply take a trade when the MACD crosses or stochastic is oversold.
What I do, and what you recommend you do as well, is learn how to read price action (the relationship between buyers and sellers). Learning the advantages of technical analysis will help you become a better and more profitable trader.
