SMAs overview

A favorite tool of many technical analysts are the moving averages, that easily show 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. You can found more about Moving Averages from sources like Wikipedia and Investopedia

Supports and resistances

Technical analysts use supports and resistances as a way to identify price points on a chart that may behave as obstacles, preventing the price of shares to move in certain direction. A support level is a level where the price may 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 meeting another support level. In contrast, resistances are where the price may find resistance as it rises. In the same way, this means that the price is more likely to "bounce off" at this level, and if it finally crosses this level, the price will climb easily until it finds the next resistance

The current resistances are:

  • R1: $5.38 (0.56% above)
  • R2: $5.40 (0.93% above)
  • R3: $5.43 (1.5% above)
  • The current support levels are:

  • S1: $5.28 (-1.31% below)
  • S2: $5.21 (-2.62% below)
  • S3: $5.20 (-2.8% below)
  • Bollinger bands

    So-called Bollinger bands are a widespread studio introduced by John Bollinger. By essence, the Bollinger Bands are bands that fluctuate around a moving averagediffering in distance from the bottom to the top depending on market volatility. They are usually drawn by an offset of two standard deviations, above and below, from a moving average line. Bollinger himself recommends the moving average period to be 20

    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 weakness or strength 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, and it was invented by J. Welles Wilder in the late 1970s

    When the relative strength (RSI) fluctuates for so long below 70 and above 30, without indication of overvaluation and undervaluation, the indicator turns out to be of little use, and we currently are in such a case.
