Analisis fundamental:

Fundamental analysis try to determine the intrinsic value of a financial instrument. Fundamental analysis assuming that, if the price of financial instrument is less than intrinsic value, price should increase, if the price of financial instrument is more than intrinsic value, price should decrease.
