I've been browsing this forum and I've run into the technical vs. fundamental debate way more times than I care to. But in all seriousness, why is this even a debate? Why not employ BOTH? IMO, both work well when used for their intended purpose. Speaking of which, in these debates, I usually see people use a word to discredit both forms of analysis, a word that neither technical nor fundamental analysis can do. That word is: PREDICT. Someone is always saying that technical or fundamental analysis can't be used to PREDICT market movement. But the question is: Why is anyone trying to predict anything? Maybe it's just me, but I believe more so in reacting to market movement than trying to predict it. Personally, I use T/A for short-term trades. But you'd better believe that I'm always checking out the fundamentals and will use F/A when its appropriate. However, attempting to predict the movement of the market is not even a thought. What say you? Why is technical vs. fundamental even a debate?
