Its methodology can be applied in any market and its techniques applied to cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, currencies, commodities, bonds, interest rates and equities. Over the past 50 years we have dedicated ourselves to the promotion and understanding of technical analysis and its role as a vital investment tool.
