Technical analysis

SMAs overview

A favorite tool of many traders are the moving averages, that easily show trend 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

Supports and resistances

Technical analysts use supports and resistances as a way to identify price points in the stock price action that tend to work as obstacles, preventing the price of shares to move up or down. A support level is a level where the price tends to stop as it falls. This means that the price is more likely to "rebound" this level rather than break through it. However, if the price breaks down this level, it is likely to continue falling until finding another support level. In contrast, resistances are where the price tends to find resistance as it rises. In the same way, the price is more liable to "rebound" at this level, and if it finally breaks this level, the price will rise easily until it meets the next resistance

The current resistance levels are:

  • R1: $560.63 (1.05% above)
  • R2: $564.19 (1.69% above)
  • R3: $565.28 (1.89% above)
  • The current support levels are:

  • S1: $551.50 (-0.59% below)
  • S2: $539.76 (-2.71% below)
  • S3: $531.39 (-4.22% below)
  • Bollinger bands

    The so-called Bollinger bands are a well-established technical strategy created by John Bollinger. It consists of 3 lines that are drawn 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 RSI (Relative Strength Index) is an oscillator-type indicator that measures price fluctuations to spot when the price of a share or financial asset is overbought or oversold. Like other oscillation indicators, the RSI fluctuates between 0% and 100%. The relative strength indicator is one of the best known and most widely used indicators, invented by J. Welles Wilder in the late 1970s

    When the Relative Strength Indicator (RSI) stays for so long below 70 and above 30, without signaling moments of overbought and oversold, the indicator becomes of little use, and we find ourselves in one of these situations.

Reported revenues were $3.6 billion compared to estimates of $3.6 billion.
