How To Read Stock Charts


A-Z Guide on Reading Stock Charts

Understanding how to read stock charts as a beginner is one of the most basic functions of a stock market investor. You will never make money if you can’t learn to recognize when is a good time to buy and a good time to sell stocks in companies.

There are a few important concepts to know as well as a few particularly easy stock patterns to keep an eye out for in the charts.

This video discusses price channels, support and resistance, and head and shoulders patterns. You will see these patterns appear on stock charts dozens of times a day throughout different markets and with different companies stocks.

The video also explains how to read candlestick charts, one of the most useful ways to view a chart today. The candlestick charts are packed full of data that can help a beginning stock trader understand what they need to do in order to make the best investing decisions possible.


  1. Thanks for the video helped a lot, now I have a question for literally anyone who knows this please. So i'm turning 18 in like a month and I have an app on my phone that lets me trade on the stock. Now I'm just starting out so I'm not looking for anything serious I just wanna learn the way around it so I wanna do kind of short term stuff and I'm just curious if that's even possible? All the videos and stuff I've learned are talking about 5-20 year plans of stocks and I understand that's mostly what this is but I'm wondering if there's graphs that show things hourly and if I can do things that way? I know I won't make as much money and that's not really what I'm concerned with at the moment, but can I do this and whats the range of money I'll be looking at. Will I only be making a few dollars a day or even just a few cents? Or is this just non realistic?

  2. I can't believe there are such things as patterns. This makes things ten times easier to understand. So the purpose of identifying patterns is to figure out when should a trader get in or out of a trade right? My big question is why do stocks fall at a certain point and then go back up again? For example, Apple's stock price went down to 285 and then it went to 300, then back down to 285, and went back up. How come it does not go past 285 when things are going bad?

  3. I've seen some video's over complicate this information.This guy did a great job at simplifying this information and making it easy to understand.

  4. I am new to trading, but so far, I don't trust channels. As far as I can tell, there is no way to tell when they will end. Concerning support and resistance, it's the same thing. They can go away as soon as they are identifiable. These things are like tornadoes.
