Technical Analysis: A Comprehensive Course
28-Feb-2023 to 03-Mar-2023 | Start Time: 9:00AM London
Technical analysis (TA) has slowly become the preferred method to understand and trade European energy and global petrochemicals markets. It is the basis for systematic and algorithmic trading, and the standard for financial markets in general. It helps formulate timely and objective strategies without getting overwhelmed by erratic price moves and market noise. Keeping a cool head and gaining a birds-eye view of market developments is imperative for making profitable calls and to mitigate risk. It works in conjunction with traditional fundamental analysis but also works on its own by enabling rational, evidence-based decision making.
This comprehensive ICIS TA course is structured around the ICIS in-house methodology that will be shared with the wider audience for the very first time. The methodology incorporates chart reading, mathematical tools and ICIS insights.
You will be taught by the ICIS technical analysis team – the industry experts and proud finalists of The Technical Analyst Awards 2021 in the ‘Best Commodities Research’ category.
The three-day course is equally suited for beginners and advanced delegates, and will provide everything you need to know about technical analysis – from principal concepts to practical applications.
You will conclude the course with a solid understanding of the most important trading decision-making tools and how they are applied in the ICIS methodology. You will be trained to utilise the methodology, adjust it to your own demands and learn how to evaluate profitable opportunities.

- Deepen your knowledge of what technical analysis is all about as the course explores its historical roots, its difference with fundamental analysis, and criticisms.
