From the Option Addict (www.optionaddict.net) "My next best attribute is that I am a technician, not a fundamentalist. Yes, I am lazy...so what! I believe that fundamentals are already priced into the market, and have no impact on short term price action. I dare you to get into that argument with me." I found this statement very surprising, and want to hear reactions. I tend to think that past patterns cannot accurately predict the future, because the fundamental first principle in equities is emotion. Technicals have a self fulfilling prophesy component, but an individual institution or piece of news can and will blow the crap out of a technical analysis every time. additionally, I can make a technical case to buy any stock at any time, and a technical case to sell that same stock at any time. there is no technical analysis agreement, and I have always thought it was because the "fundamantalists" are right. thoughts?
