Technical analysis

SMAs overview

A favorite tool of many technical analysts are the moving averages, that easily show trend direction. A moving average is calculated as the simple mean of the previous N periods (usually sessions). Moving averages are usually calculated on different periods depending on the trading timeframe 21, 50, 100 and 200 days are the most usual moving averages

Supports and resistances

Investors use supports and resistances as a way to find price points in the stock price action that may work as glass ceiling, preventing the price of an asset to move up or down. Supports are levels where the price may stop as it falls. Price is more likely to "bounce off" this level rather than break through it. Nevertheless, if the price breaks down the support, it is likely to continue descending until approaching another support level. On the other side, resistance levels are where the price tends to find resistance as it rises. In the same manner, this means that the price is more liable to "rebound" at this level, and if it finally breaks this level, it will rise easily until it meets the next resistance

The current resistances are:

  • R1: $101.17 (1.06% above)
  • R2: $103.95 (3.84% above)
  • R3: $104.27 (4.16% above)
  • The current supports are:

  • S1: $97.60 (-2.51% below)
  • S2: $95.43 (-4.67% below)
  • S3: $95.08 (-5.02% below)
  • Bollinger bands

    The so-called Bollinger bands are a popular practice that was created by John Bollinger. It consists of 3 lines 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

    Relative strength index

    The relative strength index (RSI) is a technical indicator used in the analysis of stock markets. It is intended to plot the current and previous strength or weakness of a stock or market based on the closing prices of a recent trading period. Oscillator indicators, such as relative strength, are designed to indicate values in the range of 0-100. J. Welles Wilder introduced the relative strength indicator in the late 1970s and since then it has been widely used by stock traders

    The RSI dropped below the overbought level of 70 in early June after just crossing to the overbough zone for a single day (weak signal). The RSI reading on Friday was 46.26. Allegion price dropped a 13.08% since RSI lost the overbought zone
