Using technical analysis

By January 15, 2015November 15th, 2023Active Investor Education, Uncategorized

Once each month I participate in a segment on SKY business where I am asked to find and comment on 3 stocks that are a fitting buy, hold or sell. The segment is shown 2 -3 minute segment to shown the following day around midday on Chanel 602 on Foxtel.

I use technical analysis tools to arrive at my medium-term horizon trading decisions and the results are presented live for all viewers to see. And of course, to follow over the ensuing months.

The stocks that I analysed on the 9th October 2014 show can be seen in the video below.

A chart of my BUY recommendation, Resmed (RMD), is shown below. RMD closed at $5.71 on 9th October, and has since gone on to a closing price of $ 7.33 on 14th January. During this period, 18th December, RMD also paid a dividend of 2.716c, resuming its uptrend after going ex-dividend on 18th November.

Before each appearance on Sky News Your Money Your Call, I use my technical analysis software and run a simple SPA3 scan for buys and sells. I look to the price action of the list of stocks presented, coupled with technical analysis to arrive at a decision regarding each stock. I don’t listen to the opinions of financial journalists, brokers, newsletter providers and the like because the information is right there in front of me. I am able to form my opinions and make my decisions based on analysis and facts rather than opinion and conjecture.

The markets are continuously speaking to us. We just need to learn how to listen to what they are telling us.
