    Chartists use technical indicators to help them discern patterns in the market, and thus increase their chances of determining the next direction of the market.

    The problem is, those indicators measure what the market has been doing, and assume that trend will continue. But the market can be irrational, witness the fact that pundits often try to explain why the market is behaving so ridiculously (but will soon behave according to their charts) , and why serious chartists (like Teddi) admit that they get it wrong as often as they get it right.

    For example, determining that a resistance level of a particular stock is at the (say) 20 DMA is only — can only — be evident after the fact. And today’s resistance level can become tomorrow’s support level. We see this all the time. But we also see a stock break above the resistance line, stay up for a few days, then plunge down below again.

    So what help is the chart?

    Add to this confusion the fact that exogenous events (off the radar screen) like the latest speech from a Euro zone politician can move markets 4% in a few minutes, and you have a perplexing picture. While technical indicators may help clarify some of the confusion, they still amount to guesswork.

  • Hi Toby
    Thank you for such a great comment. I enjoyed it and instead of simply replying, I wrote an article called “Forget The Debate” which tries to explain why market timing and charting does not work for so many investors but why it has worked so well for me over the past 3 decades.
