33970 Bar Charts
This chart consists, as the name tells us, of bars. Bar charts contain more information than simple line charts. They are used to display more than one price information. A simple example would be two price information per time unit. For example an open-close or high-low combination. Bar charts can contain up to four price information.
This example shows an high low close chart.
The bar itself displays the range from high to low, i.e. the highest price of the day is connected with the lowest price of the day. The little tag on the right side of the bar marks the closing price of the days trading session. If the opening price was also available, it would be linked to the left side of the bar.
Note: There can be days when the market opens at the highest or lowest price of the day. In such a case the closing price tag is attached to the top or the low of the bar. Read the rest of this entry »

Introduction
Historically, people have always been looking for ways to anticipate price movements of securities to ensure safe profits.
The second large approach besides fundamental analysis is the wide field of technical analysis. It is easy to learn, requires information that is widely available, and is mostly short term oriented. Therefore it has gained a lot of popularity in recent years.
The most important thing to say about technical analysis is that it deals more with the markets than product itself. A technical analyst does not need any information about a company

308879319 The most popular distinction between the fundamental and the technical approaches to the market has to do with the factors considered. The basic concept fundamental analysts are concerned with is the change of supply and demand and its implication on the price. It is an appealing concept that prices of goods must represent the equilibrium of supply and demand. Isolating, quantifying and evaluating the importance and influence of contributing factors is the primary task of the fundamentalist.
The Basics of Fundamental Analysis

49523664_stockmarketcrunch Securities analysts attempt to predict the future prices of marketable securities to realize profits.
Many different approaches have been made to pursue that aim. Financial analysts can best be divided into two groups: Fundamental and technical analysts. Both groups consider their approach to be superior to the other. The main argument of technicians is that fundamental analysis lags behind and does not take the psychological state of the markets into consideration. Fundamentalists say, technical analysis is not based on a scientific framework and is to large extent subjective.
Both approaches will be shown in the following chapter.

88a4b16cac2c721d271dae3faff33f93 According to the objectives of the investment company, the investment company restricts its investments either to special securities or to a diversified portfolio of different financial products and securities.
The main advantage of such a diversified fund is that an investor is able to acquire a share in a diversified portfolio without having to construct and manage this portfolio himself and without being charged with extremely high transaction fees.
Once an open-end investment company has decided on an objective, the portfolio can be invested to match objective. This objective can be clearly stated in the investment company

StockUS The main purpose of an investment company is to raise money from investors for a professional and profitable investment return. Because the fund is operating with a pool of cash supplied by its shareholders, it is able to diversify to a greater extent than any individual could. As return the investment company charges its clients management fees and commissions.
We can differentiate between open-end and closed-end funds. The main difference between these two funds is that the number of shares a closed-end fund is able to issue, is limited so that the investment company only sells a predefined number of shares.
In contrast to an open-end investment company, the closed-end company exactly specifies the number of shares it intends to sell. Open-end funds are frequently called mutual funds, which will be the matter of discussion in this chapter.
