Technical analysis

Downtrend breakout

SMAs overview

Moving averages are indicators for investors to detect market momentum. A moving average is the average price of a stock over a set period of time. Usual time periods used for moving averages are 21 days, 50 days, 100 days and 200 days

Supports and resistances

Market investors use support and resistance levels as a way to spot price points on a chart that may behave as obstacles, containing the price of an asset to move in certain direction. A support level is a level where the price may 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 the support, it will probably continue falling until finding another support level. In contrast, resistance levels are where the price may find resistance as it rises. Likewise, this means that the price is more likely to "bounce off" at this level, and if it finally breaks this level, it will climb easily until it approaches the next resistance

The current resistances are:

  • R1: $176.49 (4.09% above)
  • R2: $177.78 (4.85% above)
  • R3: $180.04 (6.18% above)
  • The current support levels are:

  • S1: $167.89 (-0.98% below)
  • S2: $167.66 (-1.12% below)
  • S3: $167.09 (-1.46% below)
  • Bollinger bands

    This is an indicator that was designed in the 1980s by John Bollinger. It is made up 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

    When the price moves out of the band (above the upper line or below the lower line) it tells that the price is maintaining a very strong trend and therefore can reverse the trend to the average. At this point, the price is over the upper band, which should mean a possible short-term corrective movement (at least) until it is below the band

    Relative strength index

    The relative strength index (RSI) is a technical indicator used in the analysis of financial markets. It is intended to chart the current and past 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 intended to indicate values in the range of 0-100. 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 dropped below the overbought level of 70 in early June after just crossing to the overbough zone for just one day (weak signal). The RSI value today was 68.34. Deere stock scarcely changed a 0.96% since that level was lost
