SMAs overview

Moving averages are simple tools for investors to measure market direction. 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. Further about Moving Averages from sources like Wikipedia and Investopedia

Supports and resistances

Investors use supports and resistances as a way to find price points on a chart that tend to work as glass ceiling, containing the price of shares to move in certain direction. A support level is a level where the price tends to find support as it falls. Price is more likely to "rebound" this level rather than break through it. Nevertheless, if the price breaks down this level, it will probably continue descending until approaching another support level. On the other hand, resistances are where the price may find opposition as it moves up. In the same way, the price is more likely to "bounce off" at this level, and if it finally breaks this level, the price will rally easily until it finds the next resistance

The current resistances are:

  • R1: $27.62 (0.25% above)
  • R2: $28.27 (2.61% above)
  • R3: $28.68 (4.1% above)
  • The current supports are:

  • S1: $26.90 (-2.36% below)
  • S2: $26.26 (-4.68% below)
  • S3: $24.52 (-11% below)
  • Bollinger bands

    So-called Bollinger bands are a widely known technical strategy introduced by John Bollinger. It is made up of three 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

    The price is moving very close to the lower Bollinger band, signaling some level of oversold in recent sessions. This is not a buy signal, as price can trade in these levels for many days and weeks

    Relative strength index

    The relative strength index (RSI) is a technical indicator used in the analysis of stock markets. Its objective is to plot the current and previous 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 designed to indicate values in the range of 0-100. J. Welles Wilder introduced the relative strength indicator in 1978 and since then it has been widely used by stock traders

    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 reading yesterday was 51.26. Since RSI lost the overbought zone, Invitation Homes stock tanked a 5.65%
