Have you ever asked yourself “ what moves the market “?

Almost every beginner trader is always curious to know the answer to this question. Demand and Supply moves the market.

In this post, we are going to be talking about the power of Fundamental Analysis, and how you can make use of it to your own advantage as a trader.

  4. How to use fundamental Analysis in making better trading decisions

  5. What types of traders need Fundamental Analysis the most? ( Scalper , Day Trader, Swing trader or Position Trader)


As a speculator or investor in the financial market you always want your confluences to be as authentic as possible in order to make the best trading decision. That is where fundamental Analysis comes in.


Investing means the buying and selling of securities with the aim of attaining profits once the price rises.

Position Traders can be generally referred to as financial investors. They desire to create, pay or benefit through an agreeable profit from their capital by taking on a normal or sub optimal measure of risk. Pay can be as the fundamental resource appreciating in value, in discontinuous benefits or interest portions, or in the full return of their spent capital. Most often, investing is the act of buying and holding an asset for the long-term. The keyword here is; LONG-TERM HOLDING. This is what separates investors from speculators.

Fundamental analysis and the study of macroeconomics of certain instruments is a vital piece of the investment cycle. It includes assessing various resources, areas, and examples or patterns that are happening in the financial market. Financial investors can utilize tools like principal or specialized investigation to pick their venture techniques or plan their portfolios. By utilizing key investigation, investors can figure out what elements influence the worth of protections, from microeconomic to macroeconomic variables.


These types of traders purchase securities with the comprehension that they will be held for just a brief period prior to selling. They may habitually move in and out of a position within a day, say some minutes or hours.

Day trading is a form of speculation, they are called day traders because they trade often on a daily basis. They generally hold their positions for a day, closing once the trading session is complete. They never hold trades overnight. Swing traders, on the other hand, hold their position overnight up to about several days or weeks expecting to exploit gains during that time. This is achieved by attempting to figure out where a security price is likely to move towards, taking a position, and afterward creating a gain.


Fundamental analysis is an essential topic in trading just as the name implies. Without understanding fundamental analysis you’re likely to make bad trading decisions. Say a particular country, the United States for example releases their unemployment rate data, the higher the unemployment rate the weaker the currency of the country gets , the lower the unemployment rate the stronger USD ( United State Dollar) gets, having known that, say we now have AUD ( Australian Dollar) paired with USD; (AUD/USD).

Now it’s Thursday evening and it has been reported that the Unemployment rate in the US is lower than expected, the Us dollar will weaken causing the AUDUSD pair to rise… This is basically how fundamental analysis works, you make use of authentic data reports to give you better confluences to know where the price of a security is likely to go next , either up or down.

The sole purpose traders often study the fundamentals of a particular market or instrument is to understand better the next possible directions price is heading towards. Then they couple the information derived with a simple technical analysis strategy. The combo is what causes them to make good trading decisions. This is not a rocket science. It’s a knowledge that needs to be acquired.
