Abstract

Technical analysis seeks to forecast future directions in stock prices from the study of past data. Since Bachelier (1900) the technical analysis school has been increasingly challenged by the random walk school, culminating in Fama's efficient market hypothesis (1970). This paper reviews the ongoing debate between those two schools of thought.
