Today, with the huge online resources every web trader both professional and newcomers could practice on the technical analysis. Technical analysis uses a wide variety of charts that show price over time.
Technical analysis is based on three general principles:


1.  Money market movement is taken into consideration by every web trader
The price factor is always impacted by external features like political, economic and psychological. Any small influence of these features is considered and reflected by a price. That is why it is an important point of comprehensive study.


2. Price movement moves in a certain direction
For applying a technical analysis it is necessary to understand the importance of market tendency. The main purpose of the technical analysis is the determination and analysis of price movement tendency in order to trade profitably in the Global Forexmarket in agreement with this market trend. Generally, there are three trend types in the money market:

  • Bullish when the price moves up
  • Bearish when the price moves down
  • Flat that has no certain direction for price movement


As a rule, during the process of price movement every trader can obtain each of these trend types, but only one of them can be the most important. Always remember, that tendency change takes place only after it gives certain signals.


3. History repeats itself
