Technical Analysis is a mathematical form of researching the prospects of an company, industry, market, or the entire economy, based on market action through studying charts, volume, trends, moving averages, patterns, formations and many other similar indicators. Usually short-term oriented. Compare: Short Selling

In contrast to fundamental analysts, technical analysts are interested only in the price action and are less concerned with the fundamentals driving the price.

Critics of this form of analysis say that this method has has no predictive power and that the only reason this type of analysis might work is that people believe in them.

Not to be mistaken for TRIZ, an approach for solving technical problems.
