Charting in the Forex
Reading and analyzing charts is something that you get better at with time and experience. But it's also easy to abuse, as it's a highly subjective exercise that you must learn to adapt to your trading style. Be sure to understand whether you're long- or short-term focused, and decide if you're aggressive or more conservative, as those factors impact your use of charting and technical analysis.
We will assume for this section that you understand that a chart plots a currency pair's price movements over time.
