The Market Trends guide serves as an introduction to technical analysis. It starts by providing an overview of what technical analysis is, contrasting it with fundamental analysis, before breaking down trend analysis into four segments:
Trend Components: This portion of the guide defines the term "trend," and highlights the components of a trend
The Trend Identification segment of the guide focuses on helping traders learn how to identify trends in the market by spotting the previously discussed trend components in the price charts of assets.
Next, the Trend Reversals segment highlights what signs traders can look for to understand when trends may be coming to an end.
Lastly, the guide covers the topic of trends within trends: by examining price charts on multiple timeframes, traders can learn to spot a downtrend within a larger trend, and vice versa. This can then lead to more advanced strategies involving trading across multiple timeframes.
