The most conventional two types of analysis are technical and fundamental among them technical analysis is the most commonly used. Fundamental analysis takes a long-term approach to investing compared to the short-term approach taken by technical analysis. As a technical analyzer with Trade12 I am enjoying more than 250 technical tools and a user friendly trading platform and all these made my operations easy.

I wrote a post that basically sums up this video: https://www.holdencasey.com/2018/01/24/fundamental-vs-technical-analysis/
Also see this debate on active vs passive investing held at UCLA: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FUD8TUFQTrw&t=632s

I first select 10 stocks to go after. I use technical analysis first. Then I use fundamental analysis, then I compare my results and which ever shows as a winner on both, then I go for it. I have 1 day experience ;)

I'm more of a short term swing trader where I will hold positions for anywhere between 1 day through 2 or 3 months. I very rarely have held a position for more than 90 days. I used technical analysis, not fundamental to predict the market bottom in early 2016. I feel like if you have a a good strategy and good rules to abide by technical works for me. But if I were a long term investor rather than a short term trader I would go with fundamental analysis.

technical analysis is math, numbers and formulas you can count on. It takes the bias and hypothetical out of the equation. Banks and work unions, governments invest this way.

So that means that if a stock is fundamentally good than it is technically also going to be good

+Aryan Jain Not quite. Many times with shocks and depressions the fundamentals of stock remain good but its technical (share price movements) tank. Fundamental will be good in the long run for a good company but its technical analysis may shadow it or fall out of favour in rough times this is why both technical and fundamental analysis is used.

I like the video. But, which method is better? I realize that for the most part it is a matter of personal preference. However, in terms of profitability which method is superior? Technical analysis or fundamental analysis? Thanks.

If you want to bet using your retirement savings, fundamental analysis is a must. If you just want to make a quick buck due to the volatility, use technical analysis.

It matters what you are analyzing to see what is better.
Vasanth Pragash (3 years ago)
+Robert A. Edinger Fundamental. Technical by itself is an effect graph not a cause graph. Its like an aftermath and not a real cause. I personally use fundamental analysis. That said certain patterns may repeat over time or suggest deeper analysis. For example a power company has excellent fundamental growth but share price on decline for several years. The reason? Unable to meet quota high expenses etc. Also certain patterns high p/e may occur before depressions.So its worth looking into technical just dont forget its just a sign and nothing more it cannot tell intrinsic value by itself. I use it to tell if a company or an industry has problems which i do not know yet from fundamental analysis. Nevertheless all the best for your investing!

+Robert A. Edinger i seem to recall that Warren buffet likes to look at the assets to determine if a company is under valued in the market, so I take it that his preference is fundamental. My opinion is that fundamental analysis is to long term investment whereas technical analysis is to short term investment. I'm no expert, but fundamental seems more stable and secure.

If fundamental analysis is good enough for Buffet, it's good enough for me.

Many people fail to realize that Warren Buffet is an investor not a trader
