De-jargoned: Technical versus fundamental analysis
Many analysts use a combination of the two to try and arrive at an appropriate strategy.
Most experts maintain that the long-term view on equity markets is intact, the short-term view is not so positive. While long-term view on equity is a product of fundamental analysis of the economic and corporate environment, short-term view is largely a product of analysing near-term price movement. The latter is popularly termed as technical analysis. Fundamental and technical analysis of a security can be very different, but they must co-exist.
