babs but that implies for the fundamentalists and weakform EMH?
viannie I thought this implies strong form of EMH...since strong form = no news is new enough to alter price of stock such that someone can arbitrage from it. News in the market is disseminated evenly to everyone prices of stock won't change drastically
viannie Babs, you are right. Ignore my 1st comment. Just read textbook ;)
Fundamentalist = strong form of EMH
Technical analyst = weak form of EMH therefore, tio them stock prices do not change drastically but persist over a trend
