Technical analysis

SMAs overview

Moving averages are simple tools for traders to detect stock direction. A moving average is calculated as the simple mean of the previous N periods (usually sessions). Usual time periods used for moving averages are 21 days, 50 days, 100 days and 200 days

Supports and resistances

Technical analysts use support and resistance levels to identify price points on a chart that may behave as glass ceiling, containing the price of a stock to move up or down. A support level is a level where the price may stop as it falls. This means that the price is more likely to "bounce off" this level rather than break through it. However, if the price breaks down the support, it will probably continue falling until meeting another support level. On the contrary, resistance levels are where the price tends to find opposition as it rises. In the same way, this means that the price is more liable to "rebound" at this level, and if it finally crosses this level, it will climb easily until it hits the next resistance

The current resistances are:

  • R1: $125.93 (1.35% above)
  • The current support levels are:

  • S1: $122.25 (-1.61% below)
  • S2: $120.88 (-2.71% below)
  • S3: $119.35 (-3.94% below)
  • Bollinger bands

    So-called Bollinger bands are a widely known technical strategy that was created by John Bollinger. It is made up of 3 bands that are superimposed on the price evolution chart:

    • The central band is a moving average, usually a simple moving average calculated with 20 periods
    • The upper band is calculated by adding to the value of the simple moving average 2 times the standard deviation of the moving average
    • The lower band is calculated by subtracting from the simple moving average 2 times the standard deviation of the moving average

    The price is moving near to the upper Bollinger band, indicating some level of overbought in recent sessions. This is not a sell point, as price can trade in these levels for many days and weeks

    Relative strength index

    The Relative Strength Index is an oscillator-type indicator that track price movements to spot when the price of a share or financial asset is overbought or oversold. Oscillator indicators, such as relative strength, are designed to indicate values in the range of 0-100. The relative strength indicator is one of the best known and most widely used indicators, and it was invented by J. Welles Wilder in the late 1970s

    When the Relative Strength Indicator stays for so long below 70 and above 30, without indicating moments of overbought and oversold, the indicator becomes of little use, and we are currently in such a case.
