CHhart analysis has become more popular than ever. One
of the reasons for that is the availability of highly
sophisticated, yet inexpensive, charting software. The
average trader today has greater computer power than major
institutions had just a couple of decades ago. Another reason
for the popularity of charting is the Internet. Easy access to
Internet charting has produced a great democratization of
technical information.Anyone can log onto the Internet today
and see a dazzling array of visual market information. Much of
that information is free or available at very low cost.
Another revolutionary development for traders is the avail-
ability of
live
market data. With the increased speed of market
trends in recent years, and the popularity of short-term trading
methods, easy access to live market data has become an indis-
pensable weapon in the hands of technically oriented traders.
Day-traders live and die with that minute-to-minute price data.
And, it goes without saying, that the ability to spot and profit
from those short-term market swings is one of the strong points
of chart analysis.
Sector rotation has been especially important in recent years.
More than ever, it’s important to be in the right sectors at the
right time. During the second half of 1999, technology was the
place to be and that was reflected in enormous gains in the
Nasdaq market. Biotech and high-tech stocks were the clear
market leaders. If you were in those groups, you did great. If you
were anywhere else, you probably lost money.
