The past year has clearly shown that investors today cannot rely on technical analysis alone. Political events and robot trade dictate the stock marketsâ movements. Most TA-software used today was developed under different conditions. I think a successful model for non-HF-traders must include some kind of sentimental analysis and also have a longer investment period, such as the ATH Sentiment Index. The benefits of this approach are that political events are not ignored and that the impact of short-term robot trading decreases.
