Applied Technical Analysis for Equity Markets Overview

Applied Technical Analysis for Equity Markets builds upon the concepts covered in CMSA’s Trading Using Technical Analysis course and applies the technical analysis tools to analyze three real-world case studies.

In our first case study, we will evaluate whether Barrick Gold is bullish or bearish with a collection of these indicators mentioned. Our second and third case studies look at the company Meta, better known as Facebook. This case study assumes that you have already taken the Trading Using Technical Analysis course as the explanation of the technical tools themselves in this course is limited (it focuses on applying what you’ve learned). Students are recommended to try and interpret the technical data for each case study first on their own and then compare it with the technical analysis checklist provided.

We will use technical analysis tools such as:
  • Line charts, bar charts, candlestick charts
  • Moving averages
  • On-balance volume indicator (OBV)
  • Moving average convergence divergence (MACD)
  • Bollinger Bands
  • Relative strength index (RSI)
  • Fast and slow stochastic oscillator (%K, %D)
  • Ichimoku Cloud
  • Parabolic SAR indicator
  • Average directional movement index (+DMI, -DMI, ADX)
