A method of evaluating securities by relying on the assumption that market data, such as charts, of price, volume, and open interest, can help predict future usually short-term market trends. Unlike fundamental analysis, the intrinsic value of the security is considered. Technical analysts believe that they can accurately predict the future price of a stock by looking at its historical prices and other trading variables. Technical assumes that market psychology influences trading in a way that enables predicting when a stock will rise or fall. For that reason, many technical analysts are also market timers, who believe that technical analysis can be applied just as easily to the market as a whole as to an individual stock.

To investigate the performance of moving average trading rules in an emerging market context, namely that of the Jordanian stock market. The conditional returns on buy or sell signals from actual data are examined for a range of trading rules. Sensitivity analysis of the impact of transaction costs is conducted and standard statistical testing is extended through the use of bootstrap techniques. The empirical results show that technical trading rules can help to predict market movements, and that there is some evidence that short rules may be profitable after allowing for transactions costs, although there are some caveats on this. New results for the Jordanian market; use of sensitivity analysis to investigate robustness to variations in transactions costs. Atmeh, M. Emerald Group Publishing Limited.
