5. Our Research Process

The report provides financial market research services to subscribers using predominantly technical and fundamental analysis.

FX Charts conduct their own research analysis based on years of experience in the financial markets. FX Charts are highly experienced and dedicated to providing the highest quality research incorporating the latest up-to-date information to ensure at time of publication he is providing the most accurate information.

Technical Analysis or ‘charting’ as it is commonly known, examines the trading history (e.g. price and volume) of a particular financial product by overlaying various programmed statistical tools that together give likely indications of future movements in the market for that financial product.

This analysis aims to identify future market behaviour, based on on-going refinement of historical analysis, which has been and is likely to be a precursor to a significant positive or negative move in the price for that financial product.

The analysis is only as current as the market data analysed, so if the analysis of the day’s market trading is done that night, consideration must be given to overnight domestic and international developments when considering the trading opportunities for the next day.

Technical Analysis tools and research give no consideration to the activities and commercial environment of the issuer of the financial product, focusing solely on the behaviour of buyers and sellers in the market for that financial product. That said, the market and commercial environment can not be disregarded.

Fundamental Analysis is based on the current and future political and economic events that could potentially have an effect on the direction on any financial product.
