Fundamentalist or Technicalist?

What is a Fundamentalist and technicalist?
Hehehe ... Well, among the traders, known as 2 "flow" a trader is: Fundamentalist and technicalist. This distinction is based on trend analysis used by each trader.

In general, there are 2 types of analysis in forex trading:

Fundamental Analysis

That analysis is based on the news (news) that affect the value of our currency trading.

Traders who use fundamental analysis in the trade are often classified as Fundamentalist. They look at the news (news) that influence the currency value of the pair that they are traded.

There are a lot of news that could affect currency values, both the direct and indirect. What are the news that influential? In general, does usually news related to the economy or politics of the country whose currency you are trading. So for example we trade the pair EUR / USD, then we need to pay attention to news from European countries and the United States.

Maybe you think: oh gosh ... then where we can monitor or know of any such news? Do not worry, now there are many sites that provide data about the news was accompanied with an estimated impact on a particular currency pair. So if meets these demands and more interested to join the Fundamentalist, frequently visited sites that provide news related to currency rate movements. Or, where we are trading brokers also usually provide facilities notification (alert) about going to the news.

Well, the Fundamentalist is a lot of use of chart movement that usually do experience extreme movement when and after the news came out. For pair-pair such as GBP / USD, the movement before and after the news can be for 20-50 pips within no more than 15 minutes. That is why the Fundamentalist usual brisk market in times when news was released.

Technical Analysis

In contrast to the Fundamentalist, technicalist traders prefer to "get away" from the market just before and after the news was released. They likened the rapid movement due to the influence of short-term news as well as a pool that is being stirred the water, so it looks "cloudy". That is, the movement of the "original" of a pair is not visible at a time like that so they chose to wait for "water" calm down and show the "true nature" of his return.

The technicalist further analysis based on movement history chart. Basically, the technicalist is believed that it will chart the movement of history repeating itself, and in something that looks random, hidden certain patterns that can be understood if it can be used to find out what is and will happen to the movement chart.

Trader technicalist "communicate" with the chart through indicators. From the signal given by this indicator, we know what is going on or "performed" by a pair. The questions such as: "doing this again the GJ? Where she's going, up or down? "Can be answered by looking at the signal given by the indicator

There are many indicators that can be used in forex trading. Usually each trader technicalist indicators that have become their mainstay, according to the indicators of understanding them.

Well, you chose to become a Fundamentalist or technicalist?
Well, actually it does not have to be distinguished strictly like that hell ... There is also a trader friend who chose to be both: D Those indicators that have become the mainstay, but also enliven the market when news was released. All is fine ..., do your what you're going to ...
That was nice to be a trader ...

I am always concern with fundamental news because can affect significant price movement. but now I am ignore it fundamental news and focus more to technical analysis. because the affect of fundamental news sometimes is only bounce and not affect significantly to trend. because I prefer technical analysis, so I am technical trader.

I use both fundamental and technical analysis. but while trading i am a technical trader. fundamentals decide the main long term trend, and technicals for entry/exit decisions. generally the time spend on fundamental analysis is very less as I dont want to get lost in unnecessary details.

I agree with you @ellliottt in short term trades what matters is technical but fundamentals are
as well important as they play important role in long term. Further technicals are not unreasoned
but they help us understand the levels where most traders are going to make fresh long or short entries.

fundamental news is many and sometimes, the pattern and effect not exactly clear. if I take fundamental news seriously, it will lead me to have assumption about the market even before the fact of market movement it self. because I am short term trader, I am seriously concern in technical analysis only.

I'm more of both. I trade when there is a trend since I'm a scalper so I will trade for short term only so long term indicators or problems don't concern me. I will be in a trade for five minutes or so and it does not matter to me. I tend to watch news a lot and if there is a wave I will jump in and scalp some money. Now, there are always a great chance to make money during trends for news releases like the recent Syria releases, I was able to see a lot of profitable trends.

I am a pure fundamentalist, but still thinking that technicalist could help but rarely use it. I think that fundamentalist does not need much analysis, especially if news already clear enough to be a high impact news, aside from that we don't have to trade everyday, just following the news.
