Learn Pure Technical Analysis – Online Course
Learn Pure Technical Analysis with Lara Iriarte, CMT
From the history of technical analysis to how to confidently read a price chart with candlesticks on your own, Lara shows you how to master Technical Analysis.
In 2021 my brother in law, Bret, emailed me to ask should he be in or out of the market. He wants to manage his own investments but he’s not sure how to choose which stocks to buy. He knows I’m a Chartered Market Technician so he asked for my help.
I replied to him with a brief technical analysis of the market to answer the question, and he said he wanted to sit down with me to have me teach him the technical analysis basics I used.
“Learn Pure Technical Analysis” online course is dedicated to Bret, and I hope it helps a great many other investors.
This course is designed for beginners. I take you all the way through from the history of technical analysis, how to read a price chart with candlesticks, to a concise and synergistic set of technical analysis tools and methods. In the last lesson I put it all together to show you how to identify if charts illustrate a buying opportunity or not, and how to develop an exit strategy.
What You’ll Learn
In Learn Pure Technical Analysis you will learn:
- How to read a candlestick chart of price over time
- How to use a small coherent and synergistic set of technical analysis tools and methods
- How to analyse a chart to identify if a stock may be a good buy or not
- How to develop an exit strategy if the market goes against you or in your favour
- What investing psychology to be aware of as you invest to avoid common pitfalls
A short course of just over 140 minutes in total covering a basic set of technical analysis tools and methods designed to give investors enough skills to better manage their own funds.
Anyone new to technical analysis who has funds to invest and wants to be involved in managing those funds themselves.
You will need a computer and an internet connection.
A physical indexed notebook, pencil and eraser, to note down new jargon. Because our brains learn better from a printed page than digital, and the act of writing new words down helps learning.
