SMAs overview

Moving averages are indicators for traders to measure momentum. 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

Supports and resistances

Investors use supports and resistances as a way to find price points in the stock price action that may behave as barriers, preventing the price of a stock to move up or down. Supports are levels where the price may find support as it falls. Price is more likely to "bounce off" this level rather than break through it. However, if the price breaks down this level, it is likely to continue descending until approaching another support level. In contrast, a resistance level is where the price may find resistance as it rises. Likewise, this means that the price is more likely to "rebound" at this level, and if it finally breaks this level, the price will rally more easily until it hits the next resistance

The current resistances are:

  • R1: $2.63 (1.54% above)
  • R2: $2.68 (3.47% above)
  • R3: $4.74 (83.01% above)
  • The current supports are:

  • S1: $2.18 (-15.83% below)
  • S2: $2.15 (-16.99% below)
  • S3: $1.76 (-32.05% below)
  • Bollinger bands

    This is an indicator that was created in the 1980s by John Bollinger. It is composed of three lines that are outlined 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 means that the price is currently maintaining a very strong momentum and therefore can correct the trend to the average. For this case, the price is above the upper band, and that should mean a short-term corrective movement (at least) until it is below the band

    Relative strength index

    The RSI (Relative Strength Index) is an oscillator-type indicator that measures price fluctuations to detect when the share or financial asset is overbought or oversold. Like other oscillation indicators, the RSI moves in a range between 0% and 100%. The relative strength indicator is one of the best known and most widely used indicators, invented by J. Welles Wilder in 1978

    The RSI dropped below the overbought level of 70 in early June after just crossing to the overbough zone for a single day (weak signal). The RSI reading yesterday was 55.33. Exantas Capital stock sank a 41.4% since RSI lost the overbought zone
