Chart patterns and technical events represent bullish and bearish conditions identified in the price action of a stock based on accepted practices of technical analysis, a type of investment research. For example, a technical event is triggered when a classic pattern (e.g., a Head and Shoulders Bottom) forms on a stock's price chart, or when a technical indicator (e.g., a Moving Average) crosses a key threshold.
Each chart pattern or technical event is interpreted automatically to indicate whether it points to a sign of bullish strength or bearish weakness for the stock, so you can quickly search for opportunities to invest or trade. Chart pattern and technical event screener searches will only include results for patterns and other events considered to be currently active. The screener does not display historical patterns considered too old or otherwise deemed no longer as useful for current trading decisions.
Technical analysis is a method for drawing a conclusion about where a stock's price might be headed based on stock price movements and trading activity. Technical analysis is based on the premise that stock prices move in trends, and that these trends continue until something changes to affect the balance of supply and demand for the stock. These changes can be detected by analyzing prior changes, looking for recurring price trend patterns, or indicating areas of support and resistance that may influence the stock's price direction. According to the standard principles of technical analysis, these patterns identify the attitudes of buyers and sellers, and can be used to anticipate price changes for more informed investment decisions.
