How to tell if the market is about to change direction

Posted by Matt Dalgleish on 22 December 2015

A recent Mecardo cattle analysis article titled “Are we in for a short-term EYCI correction?” outlined some common methods often used in technical analysis (also known as charting) when forecasting market price trends.

We always aim to deliver short, punchy market analysis and outlook articles. As such, there is often limited space to explain the actual techniques we use to analyse markets. We thought it may be useful to publish a series of more in-depth blogs on some of these technical analysis tools that describes their use in more detail for readers not familiar with charting.
