Subscribe to RSS feed Introducing Technical Charts to SGXcafe

By evankoh posted on 18 Dec 2016  -  2,088 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).

Why and How I Use Dividend Strength
As many of you would know, I initially built SGXcafe for my personal investment needs. Hence many tools here exist because I use them personally for my own investing. iAssist and iSuggest were tools that I built in an attempt to help me diversify my portfolio as it was rather challenging to decide which stock to add to my portfolio among the several hundred stocks listed in SGX. However, there is a ...

Future Yield
At the moment, one of the most highly voted features in Friends of SGXcafe is "Use various known methods to compute the intrinsic value of stocks". As much as I want to do it, it is not easy to compute the real "intrinsic" value of stocks, assuming it even exists. All methods that I have found require subjective opinions of the future. And often, small deviations in assumed values influence the results ...

Do You Really Know How To Calculate Current Yield?
This seemingly simple equation is in fact not that easy to compute. I recently adjusted and optimized the calculation of Current Yield from insights and discussions that several users have brought forth. What is Current Yield? English Definition: Current yield is an investment's annual income (interest or dividends) divided by the current price of the security (Source: Investopedia). Mathematical Definition: ...
