A favorite tool of many traders are the moving averages, that easily show market direction. A moving average is the average price of a stock over a set period of time. 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
Investors use support and resistance levels as a way to identify price points on a chart that may behave as glass ceiling, containing the price of an asset to move in certain direction. A support level is a level where the price may find support as it falls. This means that the price is more likely to "bounce off" this level rather than break through it. Nevertheless, if the price breaks down this level, it will probably continue falling until meeting another support level. On the other side, resistance levels are where the price tends to find a curb as it rises. In the same manner, this means that the price is more likely to "rebound" at this level, and if it finally crosses this level, it will rise easily until it finds the next resistance

The relative strength index (RSI) is a technical indicator used in the analysis of stock markets. It is intended to plot the current and past weakness or strength of a stock or market based on the closing prices of a recent trading period. Like other oscillation indicators, the RSI fluctuates from 0% to 100%. The relative strength indicator is one of the best known and most widely used indicators, invented by J. Welles Wilder in 1978
When the Relative Strength Indicator stays for so long below 70 and above 30, without showing moments of overvaluation and undervaluation, the indicator becomes of little use, and we find ourselves in one of these cases.
