4.2. What kind of strategy should I use?
Traders make decisions using business reports, economic fundamentals, technical factors and other relevant information. Technical traders use charts, trend lines, support and resistance levels, and numerous patterns and mathematical analyses to identify trading opportunities, whereas fundamentalists predict price movements by interpreting a wide variety of economic information, including news, business reports, government-issued indicators and reports, and even rumors. The most dramatic price movements, however, occur when unexpected events happen. Such events can range from a central bank raising domestic interest rates to a surprise outcome of a political election or even an act of war. Nonetheless, more often it is the expectation of an event that drives markets rather than the event itself.
