A favorite tool of many technical analysts are the moving averages, that easily show market direction. A moving average is calculated as the simple mean of the previous N periods (usually sessions). 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
Technical analysts use support and resistance levels to find price points on a chart that may behave as barriers, preventing the price of a stock to move in certain direction. Supports are levels where the price may stop as it falls. Price is more likely to "bounce off" this level rather than break through it. Nevertheless, if the price breaks down the support, it will probably continue descending until finding another support level. On the contrary, resistance levels are where the price may find a curb as it moves up. Likewise, the price is more likely to "bounce off" at this level, and if it finally crosses this level, the price will rally easily until it finds the next resistance
The current resistance levels are:
The current support levels are:
So-called Bollinger bands are a widespread technical strategy that was created by John Bollinger. It is made up of three bands that are outlined superimposed on the price evolution chart:
When the price moves out of the band (above the upper line or below the lower line) it means that the price is maintaining a very strong momentum and therefore can correct the trend to the average. For this case, the price is over the upper band, meaning a possible near-term corrective movement (at least) until it is below the band
The relative strength index (RSI) is a technical indicator used in the analysis of stock markets. It is intended to plot the current and previous strength or weakness of a stock or market based on the closing prices of a recent trading period. 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
RSI climbed above the 70 level yesterday, marking a reading of 87.72. Breaking through above the level of 70 is not a sell signal, as stock price can be above 70 for many weeks and may continue to rally
