Military Money Show


Dec 9, 2019

Investing can be intimidating for people. Most of us know it’s not something you should go into without preparation. But some people aren't aware they are tools they can use to research and make informed decisions about buying stock. Instead of throwing a dart at a dartboard. 

Today’s show is about using technical analysis to help with your investing decisions. But do not let the words "technical analysis" scare you away. 

My guest today is giving us a tech analysis 101 class. David Keller is a Chartered Market Technician and is the Chief Market Strategist at StockCharts.com, where he helps investors minimize behavioral biases through technical analysis.  He is also President and Chief Strategist at Sierra Alpha Research, a boutique investment research firm focused on managing risk through market awareness. And David was formerly a Managing Director of Research at Fidelity. 

In the show we discuss:

  • How investing is like flying
  • The three things people should consider when investing
  • What technical analysis is and why people should people use it
  • How technical analysis helps people
  • Technical analysis for newbie investors
  • The two things people new to technical analysis should do or know
  • Resources you can use
