Applied Technical Analysis for Energy & Commodity Markets

Timing is the key to any successful trading or hedging program. But getting the timing right will always be more of an art than an exact science. However, there are some tools that can help to build up a clearer picture of when the market price trend may change, which in turn should provide an idea of market direction and timing.

There are two main types of analysis that can be carried out: fundamental analysis and technical analysis. Fundamental analysis deals with the supply and demand factors of the physical energy world, whereas technical analysis is concerned with the price history of the market

This course suits both the beginner and also someone more familiar with Technical Analysis tools as it not only runs through the Tools but the Trainer will introduce Delegates to proven methodologies and approaches that will help you in your day to day work in the markets.
