Recognia automatically analyzes price action to identify and interpret classic chart patterns and other key conditions based on accepted practices of technical analysis. These key conditions - delivered as Technical Event notifications - provide insight into the bullish strengths and bearish weaknesses of financial instruments.

Technical analysis uses stock price movements and trading activity as the basis for drawing a conclusion about where the price may be headed. It is based on the premise that prices move in trends that tend to continue until something changes to affect the balance of supply and demand for the stock. These changes can be detected by analyzing prior changes, looking for recurring patterns that indicate a price trend, or indicate areas of support and resistance that may influence the price direction.

Technical analysis is information-intensive and historically, experts could only visually analyze a limited number of financial instruments each day. With over fifty analysis techniques, Recognia's technology makes it possible to cover thousands of financial instruments to uncover opportunities and identify risk.


Recognia provides research to Fidelity on all instruments traded on the major US exchanges, consolidated NASDAQ (including the Bulletin Board), NYSE and AMEX.
