USA Multifactor Small-Cap Ishares Edge MSCI ETF (SMLF) now has a 14 day Williams %R of -2.24. Some analysts believe that the ADX is one of the best trend strength indicators available. Employing the use of the moving average for technical equity analysis is still highly popular among traders and investors. Using the ADX with the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI) may help determine the direction of the trend as well as the overall momentum. Conversely, readings below zero indicate that Aroon-Down is greater than Aroon-Up.
Investors may also be looking to compare the current stock price of EAFE Growth Ishares MSCI ETF (EFG) to some of its moving averages. In terms of moving averages, the 200-day is now at 36.96, the 50-day is 39.05, and the 7-day is resting at 39.15. If the indicator travels under -80, this may signal that the stock is oversold. Rising trends are defined by a trendline that is drawn between two or more troughs (low points) to identify price support. In some cases, MA's may be used as strong reference points for finding support and resistance levels. Ishares IV Plc (IWMO.L)'s Williams Percent Range or 14 day Williams %R now sits at -5.96. A level under 20 would indicate no trend, and a reading from 20-25 would suggest that there is no clear trend signal. A value of 50-75 would indicate a very strong trend, and a value of 75-100 would indicate an extremely strong trend. The 14-day RSI is now at 56.3, the 7-day stands at 63.42, and the 3-day is sitting at 78.58. The percentage of stocks meeting price targets is 55%. The RSI was developed by J. Welles Wilder, and it oscillates between 0 and 100. In general, if the reading goes above -20, the stock may be considered to be overbought.
UBS ETF (UBTP.L) presently has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of 38.44. Developed by Donald Lambert, the CCI is a versatile tool that may be used to help spot an emerging trend or provide warning of extreme conditions. If the current close price (as depicted by the chikou span) is lower than the price of 26 periods ago, that would indicate that there is a potential for more bearish price action to come, since price tends to follow trends.
The ETF is -0.70% of its 52-Week High and 20.10% of its low, and is now having ATR of 0.13. Investors may be watching other technical indicators such as the Williams Percent Range or Williams %R.
Global Healthcare Ishares ETF (IXJ)'s Williams Percent Range or 14 day Williams %R now sits at -5.56. Aroon-based indicators do this by measuring price changes relative to time. US Consumer Services Ishares ETF (IYC)'s Williams Percent Range or 14 day Williams %R presently is at -10.26. The Williams %R fluctuates between 0 and -100 measuring whether a security is overbought or oversold. In general, if the reading goes above -20, the stock may be considered to be overbought.
