Is fundamental analysis useless when you’re trading instead of investing?

Fundamental analysis is really best for long time frames (longer than a year) and being a value investor. Meaning, analyzing public companies for dividend investment. When you are trading such as myself where an average trade length is less than 24 hours it is purely a technical setup. Also, when running automated systems that trade the FX market 24/5, like mine, they are all technical setups with no fundamental analysis input. One thing that has changed over the last 10 to 15 years is the Central bank and government interference in the financial system has made fundamental analysis unreliable. The correlation between the fundamentals of the economy and the stock market is at an all-time low.
