In my article, “How to Make Money in Stocks,” I covered 17 different investment strategies. Now, let’s focus on the question: What type of investment strategy is the best fit for you.

Fundamental analysis uses company financial data to find stocks that will outperform the market.

On the other hand, technical analysis focuses mostly on how the stock’s price is moving (both share price and volume) to decide which stocks are the best to buy.

Remember, these are just large categories that each contain many specific investment strategies within them. For example, value investing is a classic fundamental analysis strategy.
