By evankoh posted on 18 Dec 2016  -  4,864 views


I have been interested in learning and integrating various approaches, namely fundamental analysis, technical analysis, portfolio management and machine learning to help myself make better investments/trades. This is the one of the reasons why SGXcafe exists.

Recently, I started learning more about technical analysis through a book titled, Come into my Trading Room. I am thankful to Azrael for introducing this book to me. It is certainly a decent first book to the world of technical analysis. It touches on various topics from technical metrics to psychology to risk management. The previous ignorant me thought that technical analysis simply meant finding the "right" parameters for the "right" metric.

One of the important tools required in technical analysis is the Technical Chart. Hence, I spent the last two days incorporating a technical chart into SGXcafe. Now, you have the option to toggle between displaying the new technical chart (e.g. DBS Technical Chart) or the previous basic line chart (e.g. DBS Line Chart).

This is the very first version, hence I expect to make more improvements to it in time to come. As usual, I am happy to hear feedback on it.

Happy investing!

Disclaimer: I am not recommending that you should incorporate Technical analysis into your investments/trades. I might not even use it myself in the end, but I prefer to learn about and understand it to make an informed decision.

azrael - It is an interesting read, but it is not everything either (FA is still important). Seems like you enjoyed the book :)

jarwey - TA is just to find the better price to buy/sell after i had done the FA. so far, i feel that it's still a bit like gambling...

evankoh - @viperviper, that is certainly coming up.

@azrael, agree.

@jarwey, in my opinion, investing is gambling. Just that we can increase my chances via different sources (e.g. FA, TA, insider trading etc).

Close Price vs Last Traded Price
All along, I have naively displayed "Last Traded Price" and used it for all computations in StocksCafe without much consideration. That is until recently, when a user brought to my attention the difference between "Last Traded Price" and "Close Price". This led me to spend time learning about it and ultimately switch to using "Close Price" in StocksCafe instead. Close Price vs Last Traded Price Most ...

Can you avoid investing?
Recently, a friend of mine sent me an article about how you should create a "total portfolio" that takes your career into account as part of the portfolio. That is, if you have a stable job, you should buy risky stocks so that you would have opportunities for huge gains since you are unlikely to get large pay raises. Likewise, if you are an entrepreneur, you should hold safe bonds since your career ...

Download SGXcafe iOS App Now!
Yes, SGXcafe finally has an app! According to Google Analytics, about 40% of visitors use mobile devices to access SGXcafe. Naturally, there have been numerous requests for SGXcafe to have a mobile app. Personally, I also wanted a mobile app for SGXcafe to better serve users, but I know nothing about iOS and Andriod development hence I have been procrastinating it. However, "iOS Universal App" is one ...
