15 July 2017, 05:14 | Jodi Jackson

We can now take a quick look at some historical stock price index data. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is a highly popular technical indicator. When combined with the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI), it can help decipher the trend direction as well.

iShares, Inc. - iShares MSCI Japan ETF (ARCA:EWJ) has a current MF Rank of 9828. Many chart analysts believe that an ADX reading over 25 would suggest a strong trend. A value of 25-50 would support a strong trend.

Sharp investors may be looking to examine the Williams Percent Range or Williams %R. After a recent look, the 14-day ATR for Capstone Therapeutics Corp (CAPS) is resting at 0.01. This range falls on a scale between 0 and 100. A CCI closer to +100 may provide an overbought signal, and a CCI near -100 may provide an oversold signal. A reading between 0 and -20 would indicate an overbought situation. As a momentum indicator, the Williams R% has the ability to be used with other technicals to help define a specific trend.

Checking on some popular technical levels, db x-trackers MSCI Bangladesh IM Idx UCITS ETF 1C (XBAN.L) has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of 212.12. Investors and traders may use this indicator to help spot price reversals, price extremes, and the strength of a trend. Any trader, regardless of skill level or expertise, can use the cloud to quickly and efficiently analyze any product on any time frame. Developed by Larry Williams, this indicator helps spot overbought and oversold market conditions.

Currently, the 14-day ADX for db x-trackers MSCI Bangladesh IM Idx UCITS ETF 1C (XBAN.L) is sitting at 20.37. Moving averages are considered to be lagging indicators meaning that they confirm trends. On the other end of the spectrum, a younger investor with a longer time horizon might be able to search for stocks with a higher potential for growth that may involve much more risk.

The Price Index is a ratio that indicates the return of a share price over a past period. At the time of writing, the 14-day ADX for iShares Edge MSCI Multifactor Canada Index ETF (XFC.TO) is noted at 9.95.

Tracking other technical indicators, the 14-day RSI is presently standing at 58.04, the 7-day sits at 63.23, and the 3-day is resting at 60.83 for Teledyne Technologies Inc (TDY). The RSI can help show whether the bulls or the bears are now strongest in the market. Used as a coincident indicator, the CCI reading above +100 would reflect strong price action which may signal an uptrend. The average true range indicator was created by J. Welles Wilder in order to measure volatility. A reading under 30 would indicate oversold conditions. Many investors opt to follow what covering sell-side analysts think about certain stocks. At this point in time, investors may have to make the tough decision whether to be fully invested in the stock market, or keep some cash handy on the sidelines. This can sometimes prevent them from staying in the market. Understanding volatility and market fluctuations can help the investor gauge their risk tolerance in the markets. This year could end up being the first year in a while where this has happened. Although stock picking might seem easy to those that have been in the mix for a long time, it may seem extremely hard for the novice.
