Technical analysis

SMAs overview

Moving averages are tools for traders to gauge 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

Supports and resistances

Technical analysts use supports and resistances to find price points on a chart that tend to work as barriers, preventing the price of a stock to move in certain direction. A support level is a level where the price may stop 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 falling until meeting another support level. On the other side, a resistance level is where the price tends to find resistance as it rises. In the same manner, this means that the price is more liable to "bounce off" at this level, and if it finally crosses this level, it will rise more easily until it hits the next resistance

The current resistance levels are:

  • R1: $3.34 (0.91% above)
  • R2: $3.37 (1.81% above)
  • R3: $3.47 (4.83% above)
  • The current support levels are:

  • S1: $3.30 (-0.3% below)
  • S2: $2.70 (-18.43% below)
  • S3: $1.87 (-43.5% below)
  • Bollinger bands

    This is an indicator that was developed in the 1980s by John Bollinger. It consists of 3 bands that are plotted 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

    Relative strength index

    The Relative Strength Index is an oscillator-type indicator that measures price movements to identify when the share or financial asset is overbought or oversold.

The relative strength indicator is one of the best known and most widely used indicators, and it was invented by J. Welles Wilder in 1978
