Is chart analysis, technical analysis halal or haram?

Assalmualikum. Hope you all are doing well. I wanted to know if chart analysis of stock is halal or haram? I’ve been looking for the answer for 2 days now. But can’t seem to find it. Is it halal and why? or is it haram and why? Someone said technical analysis is like betting b’coz we predict if the price will go up or down. So i just wanted a clear picture on that

Wasalam

May Allah bless you.

Analysis are just ways of forecasting market’s movements, and to trade accordingly. We all do forecasting in our lives one way or another (see: Superforecasting: the art and science of prediction), and this does not go against shariah as longer as we do not claim to have the knowledge of the unseen.

Similarly, trading based on forecasts does not fall under the definition of betting in Islam.

Therefore, using analysis to trade in stock is not wrong as longer as we are buying halal stocks through halal means.

And Allah knows best!
