Contrary to this belief, there is also a theory that all prices change randomly and it is absolutely impossible to forecast the outcome. Provided that you have no intention to use historical data for analysis, the only strategy which seems to be possible is to sell short and hold. However, a large amount of research shows us that it is possible to make more money if you use different analysis tools. That is what I would like to investigate in this article.
