When deciding which companies to invest in, or how to trade, there are a number of decision criteria one should consider. Analysts tend to fall into two main categories based on how they evaluate a company and make recommendations.

Technical analysts use past market data to create a hypothesis on future market movements. The price and volume of shares traded, as well as the market’s volatility are used as key indicators. Technical analysts look to profit from the market by… [Read More]

…taking into account investor psychology and behavioral analysis when determining a target share/asset price, and when deciding how to trade. Main technical analysis methods include charting and sentimental analysis.

There are three main charts used by technical analysts, including candlestick charts, open-high-low-close charts, and line charts.

  • Candlestick charts emphasize the open/close relationship by filling the difference between open and close prices. Red or black “candles” represent a closing price lower than the opening price, while white, green or blue candles represent a closing price above the opening price.
  • Open-high-low-close bar charts show the open and close prices by plotting a horizontal line segment, and connecting the two vertically.
  • Line charts connect closing prices using a line, revealing the general trend of the company’s share price over time.

When deciding how to trade, analysts look at resistance, support, breakout levels, trends, momentum, ranges, ratios and chart patterns (including, head and shoulders, dead cat bounce, etc.). There are typical market movements that technical analysts have found follow certain trading patterns or indicators. This is based on the belief that history may repeat itself.

Sentiment analysis is the analysis of language and text to determine subjective information. This follows from the belief that investors (and therefore investing behavior) are influenced by external events, which impact trading behavior. When deciding how to trade, technical analysts focus on trends. Analysts believe that available information is already reflected in a company’s share price. As a result, new information or a change in sentiment will result in tradable opportunities for CFD traders.

Fundamental analysis, on the other hand, attempts to determine the underlying value of the company based on the company’s assets, liabilities, growth potential etc. Unlike technical analysts, fundamental analysts do not believe the future can be determined by looking at historic information. Rather, fundamental analysts believe trading opportunities are created when a security is mispriced in the short run. Opportunities for profit exist when investors realize a mispricing, and either buy (if undervalued) or sell (if overvalued). Fundamental analysts will consider the company, industry, and economy when making trading decisions.

Both fundamental and technical analysts are aided by the more information available. Therefore, having access to Level I or Level 2 data may influence how to trade, and may have an impact on an investors trading methodology. Level II data reveals the buying and selling pressure of a security. With level 2 data, the highest bid price and the lowest ask price is given, after information from several market makers is aggregated. Thus, it is a better indicator of market sentiment. Level I data, however, reveals only the price, bid and offer, and sometimes basic volume information.

since signing up for Accendo I have had two traders, Mark and Sam. I have found both of these to be very informative about how CFD's work and they have made it very easy for me. Since working with Sam (last four months) my trading knowledge has improved and I can make more informative decisions about which Company's to invest with. Keep up the good work Sam.

Since I have been trading with Accendo Markets I have experienced much greater success than has been my experience with other trading companies mainly due to the help given by, what I consider to be my terminal with the trading floor, Mark, who has been most helpful in reminding me of the progress of my positions throughout the day and keeping me in touch with those positions so that I can more easily make successful trades when appropriate instead of missing out on opportunities through lack of attention. He draws my attention to the situations and enables me to make profitable trades. I am very happy with the situation at the moment and am enjoying the experience. Thomas Irving.

I have been trading with Accendo Markets and James Abbott my account manager for coming on 5 years now, James Abbott the senior trader of Accendo Markets provides me with up to minute information when I need it and find him very easy and professional to deal with. Whenever I need to trade or am not sure about anything James is always their to help with any queries I may have. The Accendo Platform I find very easy to use and navigate although it has been slightly changed over the years but definitely for the better. Personal when I do trade 90% of the time, I rather telephone call to place my trade dealings and if James is not there to take my call I find others at Accendo like Sam, Lee take my trades and are. All in all everyone at Accendo Markets are amazing to deal with and my relationship with Accendo is just as I like it. Peter Petrou

I have been with Accendo for a long time now, ten or twelve year's, probably more . As I told Sam (my trader) I thought that CFDs were better than sex . I stopped trading for a few years and only started back about a couple of months ago. But it is as if I had never been gone , so to speak. Sam has helped me every step of the way, at my age one forgets things. I have only praise for Accendo and as far as I am concerned the platform is the best . Now I am back trading at 71 years of age, I might even try sex again. Brian Robertson.

I understand how to make a profit with CFDs. I am restricted by the range of companies I have knowledge of. Although, I am not sure that is a big problem. Tom Robertson is a very fine man.

Well, I would not be trading without the help of my trader, Sam Alnakkash. He provided a really great overview of Accendo Markets, an insight into trading in general and how to get started in trading online. His advice, support and training has been fantastic all along the way, enabling me to start trading earlier than I would have done had I not had the support. He has also been very adept at understanding me as a client in order to help me achieve my trading goals. I still have a lot to learn and hope I will get there.

I like the updates on shares I trade. Updates from Bloomberg and Reuters plus industry updates and breaking news. I've had Matt Grice and James Abbott and found both to be excellent. I would like to continue a personal service with James. He understands how and which stocks I trade.
