Fundamental analysis or technical analysis?


I was always thinking about this aspect for long now. Let us try solving this puzzle a bit.
Let us start from the definitions.
fundamental analysis is the study of a company's health and its profitability
Technical analysis is the study of stock price movements and volume trends using charts.
Purchasing a stock is like purchasing a business. That is if you are buying some shares of ACC, it is almost like buying a cement seller's business next door.
How do you arrive at the conclusion wether the price he is asking is justified? ( equate it with current price of ACC)
You will first see how much sales he is doing. Then you will see what are the profit margins. Next you will see wether this business can grow? Then you will check about competition. Next you will see wether a competitor is selling his business at a better value ( Equate it with wether ACC or Grasim?). All these sums up the fundamental analysis of a company or business.
Now you arrive at a conclusion wether or not to buy his business based on the above study.
The other way around is, looking for is his business has more takers or no takers? Wether he may offer the business at a lesser price tomorrow. This equates the technical analysis of a stock.
Conclusion:

  1. You should make a very good study of fundamentals
  2. Decide wether or not to buy that stock based on fundamentals
  3. If it is good, use technical analysis to find wether you may get a better opportunity to buy this stock at a lower level
  4. If fundamentals are too good to resist, ignore the technicals and buy the stock when markets are in panic and technicals are showing the downward journey
