SMAs overview

A favorite tool of many trading systems are the moving averages, that easily show trend direction. 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. Further about Moving Averages from sources like Wikipedia and Investopedia

Supports and resistances

Market investors use supports and resistances as a way to spot price points on a chart that tend to work as glass ceiling, preventing the price of a stock to move in certain direction. Supports are levels where the price tends to find support as it falls. This means that the price is more likely to "rebound" this level rather than break through it. Nevertheless, if the price breaks down the support, it will probably continue falling until approaching another support level. In contrast, resistances are where the price may find a curb as it rises. In the same manner, this means that the price is more likely to "bounce off" at this level, and if it finally breaks this level, the price will rise more easily until it finds the next resistance

Price is at all-time highs and there are not upper resistances.

The current supports are:

  • S1: $59.62 (-10.96% below)
  • S2: $58.75 (-12.26% below)
  • S3: $57.61 (-13.96% below)
  • Bollinger bands

    This is an indicator that was created in the 1980s by John Bollinger. It is composed of three 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

    When the price moves out of the band (above the upper line or below the lower line) it indicates that the stock is having a very strong momentum and therefore can correct the trend to the average. For this case, the price is above the upper band, meaning a short-term correction (at least) until it is below the band

    Relative strength index

    The relative strength index (RSI) is a technical indicator used in the analysis of stock markets. It is intended to chart 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. 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

    Relative Strength Indicator crossed over the overbought line today, marking a value of 77.56. Contrary to what many investors may think, the fact that the RSI value is above 70 does not imply a sell point, as stock price can rally during several weeks being above 70
