I'be been looking over hundreds of daily charts lately, and I've noticed something interesting. It seems that on a lot of the less widely followed stocks, technical analysis and chart formations seem to appear in a much more clear and organized fashion then on some of the more popular stocks. My guess is that on the more widely followed, favorite stocks of many traders, like CIEN, JNPR, CSCO, MSFT, etc., the volatility just makes the charts messier. That's not to say that technical analysis is not valid on those stocks, just a lot harder to spot any solid trends, or formations. So, my conclusion would be that it would be easier for one to follow less popular stocks for finding more clearly defined patterns. What do you guys think?
