When you own stock shares with some profit, it's really difficult to decide the correct moment to sell and get your benefits. In the same way as when we have to buy shares, determining when is the best time to sell is not a random decision, and we must use our own trading strategy. When selling, as well as buying, our strategies are very simple to follow but are only valid for selling stocks in your porfolio, not for selling short MXIM stock

A favorite tool of many trading systems 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
Technical analysts use support and resistance levels as a way to spot price points in the stock price action that may behave as obstacles, containing the price of shares to move up or down. Supports are levels where the price tends to find support as it falls. 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 declining until finding another support level. On the contrary, a resistance level is where the price may find resistance as it rises. Likewise, the price is more likely to "bounce off" at this level, and if it finally breaches this level, the price will rally easily until it finds the next resistance
