Learning Technical

With the current financial crisis happening globally, the stock market has dropped significantly.  It is true that some of the shares have recovered but majority have not. Now that a lot of people are trying to find safe haven for whatever funds they have left, it may be a time to buy shares.

I used to subscribe to the notion of buy and hold but that has caused me to lose a significant amount of funds. Maybe, investment should be a mixture of technical analysis and fundamental analysis. A lot of books and sites have been written on both topics.

So the question remains, how do you start. For the U.S. share market a lot of sites provide tools to perform such analysis but in other countries, there isn't as much. So what is the alternative. One of the tools I found that can be obtained for free to help learn / self study technical analysis is chartNexus. You can download and install the tool and it provides a daily update (End Of Day) data for a lot of different countries. The free edition is full of features but if you are not satisfied, you can buy additional modules. This is a much cheaper way of learning technical analysis compared to tools like Metastock which still requires you to find a data provider.
