Subscribe to RSS feed Introducing Technical Charts to SGXcafe

By evankoh posted on 18 Dec 2016  -  1,526 views


I have been interested in learning and integrating various approaches, namely fundamental analysis, technical analysis, portfolio management and machine learning to help myself make better investments/trades. This is the one of the reasons why SGXcafe exists.

Recently, I started learning more about technical analysis through a book titled, Come into my Trading Room. I am thankful to Azrael for introducing this book to me. It is certainly a decent first book to the world of technical analysis. It touches on various topics from technical metrics to psychology to risk management. The previous ignorant me thought that technical analysis simply meant finding the "right" parameters for the "right" metric.

One of the important tools required in technical analysis is the Technical Chart. Hence, I spent the last two days incorporating a technical chart into SGXcafe. Now, you have the option to toggle between displaying the new technical chart (e.g. DBS Technical Chart) or the previous basic line chart (e.g. DBS Line Chart).

This is the very first version, hence I expect to make more improvements to it in time to come. As usual, I am happy to hear feedback on it.

Happy investing!

Disclaimer: I am not recommending that you should incorporate Technical analysis into your investments/trades. I might not even use it myself in the end, but I prefer to learn about and understand it to make an informed decision.

azrael - It is an interesting read, but it is not everything either (FA is still important). Seems like you enjoyed the book :)

jarwey - TA is just to find the better price to buy/sell after i had done the FA. so far, i feel that it's still a bit like gambling...

evankoh - @viperviper, that is certainly coming up.

@azrael, agree.

@jarwey, in my opinion, investing is gambling. Just that we can increase my chances via different sources (e.g. FA, TA, insider trading etc).

Bull or Bear?
"No price is too high for a bull or too low for a bear" - an old Wall Street proverb It is a known fact that investors can be over-optimistic or over-pessimistic at times. When a series of good news happens, investors switch into the optimistic mode, often over-optimistic, and significantly bid up the price of a stock ditching any rational pricing theory whatsoever. Any high price will be justified ...

Analyze and Compare Stocks (using SGXcafe)
Analyze Every investor has his/her favorite set of metrics that they look at when performing stock analysis and valuation. Therefore, it is difficult to decide which metric to display in SGXcafe, hence most of the time, I simply choose to display information that I am personally interested in. But I want to make SGXcafe more customizable so that it can provide better value to everyone. Incidentally, ...

I have already started integrating dividend information, since this is something numerous users have been asking me about. At this point ...
