There are basically two ways to approach the markets: technical and fundamental analysis.
Technical Analysis: studies the past behavior of price of any given instrument as an attempt to forecast its future behavior.
Fundamental Analysis: the focus of which is to study the economic, social and political forces that drive the supply and demand of currencies.
Which one is the best approach?
There has been an ongoing debate on which approach is better. Sometimes technicals nail it down, but for some others the fundamentals do it. The truth is, there is no clear answer to this question. And I would say that the answer lies within each one of us. That is, use the one that fits you, the one that works better for you.
If you are a short term trader, you will probably prefer the technical approach, since it concentrates on price behavior. On the other hand, fundamental changes take longer to be visible in the charts so it will be better to adopt a fundamental approach.
Today, many traders and investors use both approaches, so they can have a clearer picture of any given situation.
