So it seems to me like a lot of you guys rely on TA primarily when you trade. At least I think thats what all this jibberish about resistance is about. Anyways I thought I should start to learn about it since some of you seem to do well with it. So first things first, I google it and it leads me to the wikipedia page which says: "Technical analysis is widely used among traders and financial professionals, but is considered in academia to be pseudoscience or "voodoo finance;" it receives little or no direct support from academic sources and is considered akin to "astrology." Academics such as Eugene Fama say the evidence for technical analysis is sparse and is inconsistent with the weak form of the generally-accepted efficient market hypothesis. Economist Burton Malkiel argues, "Technical analysis is an anathema to the academic world." He further argues that under the weak form of the efficient market hypothesis, "...you cannot predict future stock prices from past stockprices." Hmm what do you think?
