What does a Technical Analyst do?

Technical analysts are securities researchers who analyze investments based upon past market prices and technical indicators and observe stock market patterns to make predictions about a stock’s future performance. They ensure this is correct by using systemic approaches to financial account forecasting that consider statistics including a stock's price, trading volume, trade rates, securities, and interest rates. They apply forecasting information to their statistical formulas to derive the most optimal time and price for selling stocks.

Technical analysts also gather, file, and present their data to be used by their employers and use critical thinking and analytical skills to evaluate the stock market’s constant fluctuations. They communicate their findings through the critical investment information they provide to their clients. Technical analysts need a minimum bachelor's degree in a finance related field. employers also require an additional license.
