Deepen your knowledge of technical analysis indicators and hone your skills as a trader 

Grow your understanding of trading-chart patterns to better predict market trends


Here are some more technical indicators and patterns for you to learn about:

Markets move in trends and many traders rely on technical analysis tools to better predict what is going to happen to an asset’s price. This is an essential skill to be able to time your trades and pick the best entry and exit points. Technical indicators are also helpful in keeping your finger on the pulse of the market and try to gauge sentiment, which is a huge factor in determining what happens next to the price of an asset, or currency pair. This knowledge also comes in handy for managing your risk and helps with placing your take-profit and stop-loss orders to protect your capital once you are confident enough to trade with a live account.
You can find detailed tutorials to some of the best-known technical indicators and chart patterns on the main menu.
