Is there anywhere that I can learn about fundamental analysis and technical analysis of stocks for free?
Yes. The public library. For fundamental analysis start by checking out "The Intelligent Investor" by Benjamin Graham, "Stocks for the Long Run" by Jeremy Siegel, and "The Manual of Ideas" by John Mihaljevic. Make a point of finding and browsing through the library's subscription to "Value Line," a wonderful service.
The best books on technical analysis include "The Research Driven Investor" by Timothy Hayes, "Quantitative Investment Analysis" by DeFusco, McLeavey and Pinto, and the classic, "Technical Analysis of Stock Trends" by Edwards and Magee.

Here's a fairly concise answer to your question: http://www.mta.org/eweb/dynamicpage.aspx?webcode=what-is-technical-analysis | 01.17.15 @ 01:56
Regarding Technical Analysis: My favorite technical analysis book back in college was Techincal Analysis of Stock Trends by Robert Edwards. I have heard that Technical Analysis of the Financial Markets by Murphy is also good. You can't go wrong with either. Personally I think you should have your own copy but stop by the library if you want to check them out for free.
As for fundamental Analysis: I second Martin's vote for Intelligent Investor by Graham. his "Security Analysis" is also great. Or read from Graham's best pupil and check out Warren Buffet's :Letter's to shareholders. | 08.13.15 @ 02:18
Ha! Start with Burton Malkiel's A Random Walk Down Wall Street. After reading that, you may find you have better things to do with your time... (Or not -- it's worth reading either way.) | 09.29.15 @ 20:24
As a Rule #1 Investor, I can now tell you that ruleoneinvesting.com is now free. Also, they do 3 day workshops that are also free to attend (you do pay for your expenses like motel, flight, food, etc).
Here is a link to the live stream event (no traveling-just a computer and internet connection).
As an IM (Investment Manager) I use ~80% Fundamental and ~ 20% technical analyses. There are other formulas, always use only what you understand and works.
If you are new to investing, Preston Pysh & Stig Brodersen have a very basic website, books, blog, videos, etc.
Feel free to send me a message for more info. No obligation.
