There have always been clashes between the fundamentalists and the chartists about how the stocks and markets should be analyzed. Chartist or technical analysts are those who forecast the markets by considering the historic trends, whereas the fundamental analysts consider all the other factors that affects the stocks.
Most people prefer analyzing the markets based on technical or fundamental analysis, while there are only a few who make the use of both, fundamental and technical analysis together for analyzing the stocks. Even when you search the internet for fundamental and technical analysis, the search returns with major results for the substituting nature of two, denoting the better of two. On the other side, there have been huge research done on the complementary nature of the two, proving that even if a single analysis works well in isolations, the results of complementary behavior returns with larger gains. Despite of proofs in regressions and cases and all other ways possible, investors resist to change the way of single kind of analysis based on the type of trade.
This research focuses on knowing what kind of analysis is done by the traders and investors, who are members of the Facebook group “Day Trading Stocks and Options”, and the reason for that particular analysis. This is done with a view to find reason why people rarely use the complementing nature of technical and fundamental analysis, both together.
