DEFINITION of 'Forex Analysis'

INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Forex Analysis'

Forex analysis can be either manual or automated. A manual system involves a trader sitting at the computer screen, analyzing signals and interpreting whether to buy or sell. In automated trading analysis, the trader teaches the software what signals to look for and how to interpret them. It is thought that automated analysis takes the element of human psychology out of trading.
