I'm sure I'll get hate for this comment, but technical analysis is not worth learning. Before you downvote this, at least give a glimpse at the following links below:

"This paper provides evidence that "illusory correlations"-a well-documented source of cognitive bias-lead some agents to be imperfectly rational noise traders. We focus on the head-and-shoulders chart pattern, considered by technical analysts to provide one of the most reliable trading signals. Our findings indicate that the pattern is associated with a substantial rise in trading volume even though it does not profitably predict directional movements. We further substantiate the connection between head-and-shoulders trading and imperfectly rational noise trading by showing that the pattern is associated with lower bid-ask spreads."

Various links showing the randomness of short-term price moves in markets that do not follow technical analysis patterns:
