Technical analysis (or charting) is used by some investment managers to help manage portfolios. Technical analysis relies heavily on the availability of historical data. Investment managers calculate different indicators from available data and plot them as charts. Observations of price, direction, and volume on the charts assist managers in making decisions on their investment portfolios.
The technical analysis functions in Financial Toolbox™ are tools to help analyze your investments. The functions in themselves will not make any suggestions or perform any qualitative analysis of your investment.
