ASX Charting library provides a wealth of information

ChartsCharting or technical analysis is a popular method used by professional traders to evaluate how and when to trade into and out of the financial markets. The key to successful investment in any market can rest as much in the timing of the decision to buy or sell, as in the selection of direction. Regardless of how you invest your money, you need to know when to buy or sell. Your timing is crucial for your return.

The intention of this charting library is to explain how to construct and analyse the most commonly used types of charts. Charting is as much an art as a science, with different interpretations of the same chart possible depending on who is doing the analysis. Your interpretation may depend on the type of trader you are and your intended time frame.

Topics covered range from identifying patterns and chart formations (including trendlines, pennants and flags) through to the more advanced topics of technical indicators where Bollinger bands and Gann charts are explained.

It is advised that investors new to charting techniques start at the top and make their way through the more complex techniques. Go to the Charting Library for more details.
