How can you predict the future? Charlie Burton, trader and educator comments. No you can’t – unless you start to use those moon cycles we talked about earlier. But you don’t need to predict the future the future to make money – you just need to use sensible money management. Do you favour any particular technical analysis techniques? Yes, I do but I would also say that trading is a very personal thing. I like moving averages and technical levels of support and resistance for instance. Do you trade the news?
