Technical analysis

SMAs overview

A favorite tool of many technical analysts 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

Supports and resistances

Traders use supports and resistances to identify price points on a chart that tend to behave as barriers, containing the price of a stock to move up or down. Supports are levels where the price tends to stop as it falls. Price is more likely to "bounce off" this level rather than break through it. However, if the price breaks down the support, it is likely to continue falling until finding another support level. On the other side, resistances are where the price tends to find resistance as it rises. In the same manner, the price is more likely to "rebound" at this level, and if it finally breaches this level, the price will climb more easily until it hits the next resistance

Price is at all-time highs and there are not upper resistances.

The current supports are:

  • S1: $23.42 (-1.68% below)
  • S2: $23.39 (-1.81% below)
  • S3: $23.33 (-2.06% below)
  • Bollinger bands

    This is an indicator that was introduced in the 1980s by John Bollinger. It consists of three bands that are outlined 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 action to reveal when the share or financial asset is oversold or overbought. Like other oscillation indicators, the RSI moves in a range 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 the late 1970s

    The RSI crossed up the oversold line of 30 in mid-March after just being in the oversold zone for a single day (what can be considered a strength sign). The RSI reading in mid-April was 59.14. Since RSI left the oversold zone, Cypress Semiconductor price skyrocketed a 56.61%
