• Technical Data: Technical information is important as it uses mathematical signals and indicators on charts. There are dozens of indicators that are in use today by many successful traders. It’s up to you to decide which indicators to use, but common indicators include, moving averages, MACD, relative strength, and Bollinger bands to name a few. You also have to remember each trader is different, so it’s good to explore different indicators you will be comfortable with when you trade.
