≈ A Technical Analysis Adventure ≈
Many science fiction movies, television shows, and novels incorporate the use of a portal. Depending on the tale, the portal can lead to another place on this planet, to another world, and even to another dimension. The common theme that overlaps all these works of science fiction is that once the adventurer enters the world, they are exposed to things they have never seen before and embark on an adventure in this new location.
When most people are exposed to the technical analysis for the first time, the experience and excitement is very similar to the adventurer entering a portal and experiencing a new world. For all practical purposes, the principles of trends, support, resistance, Fibonacci retracements, moving averages and other indicators might as well have been in a different dimension for most of us.
Undoubtedly the adventurer has apprehensions, worries, and even fears about being exposed to such a strange environment. A brave new world exists once you enter the world of trading and technical analysis. It can be a bit scary but taking that first step through this portal might not lead you to a new world, but it certainly can transform your own.
