This is a forum where folks can study Technical Analysis with me.or just see what I'm looking at  here.
I have studied TA about 8 - 12 hours a day since 2005. (longer hours in the beginning...less now.)

I DONT Know Everything.

But what I have studied, I do know, and use it to analyze charts.

When using technical analysis to see the vision of a chart picture, its not necessary to master Every TA tool, nor is it necessary or desirable to use an extreme number of tools only need a handful, combining together the ones that you find most useful. and over time, putting together your own tool kit some combination that works well all together.

My own set of technical tools focus on understanding and using
Ichimoku cloud(full)
Elliott Wave counting
Candlestick analysis
Some key Chart patterns
Support/Resistance levels
Fibonacci retracement...sometimes Fibonacci arcs
Pivot points
......and somehow developing a greater Intuition that can feel the public mood .

Doing technical analysis is really only half the picture. The other half is understanding Fundamental anlysis.

Combining the two types of analysis creates the best vision short of inside info one can have.
I spen alot of time reading internet news from around the world. studying charts. Following the commentaries of assorted experts I respect. and trying to put the pieces of the investing puzzle together.

My portfolio has focused on Biotech and metals and miners mostly. in recent years.
