SMAs overview

Moving averages are tools for traders to gauge market momentum. 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

Investors use support and resistance levels to spot price points on a chart that tend to work as barriers, containing the price of a stock to move in certain direction. Supports are levels where the price tends to stop as it falls. Price is more likely to "rebound" this level rather than break through it. However, if the price breaks down this level, it will probably continue falling until meeting another support level. On the other hand, a resistance level is where the price tends to find a curb as it rises. In the same manner, this means that the price is more likely to "bounce off" at this level, and if it finally crosses this level, the price will rise easily until it approaches the next resistance

The current resistances are:

  • R1: $10.39 (0.1% above)
  • R2: $10.40 (0.19% above)
  • R3: $10.47 (0.87% above)
  • The current support levels are:

  • S1: $10.31 (-0.67% below)
  • S2: $10.23 (-1.45% below)
  • S3: $10.20 (-1.73% below)
  • Bollinger bands

    This is an indicator that was designed in the 1980s by John Bollinger. It is composed of 3 bands 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 relative strength indicator is one of the best known and most widely used indicators, invented by J. Welles Wilder in 1978
