The question is, do they work. And the answer is, yes and no. A chart will NOT tell you what is going to happen tomorrow. No matter how highly regarded some technical analyst might be, a chart tells you just one thing perfectly, it tells you what Happened. Not what’s going to happen.
I’m sure a bunch of you are moaning and groaning and saying colorful words about me. It’s okay, I’ve heard them all. But the fact still remains, charts show you where a stock has been, but it does not tell you where it’s going.
