Market Focus: Tracking Shares of Blackrock Muni Income Trust II (BLE)

It is now trading at $15.53 which is marginally lower than $15.66, the stock's 50 day moving average and which is just under the 200 day moving average of $15.74. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is a highly popular momentum indicator used for technical analysis. ADX is charted as a line with values ranging from 0 to 100. Symphony Asset Llc owns 61,105 shares. Many traders keep an eye on the 30 and 70 marks on the RSI scale. The normal reading of a stock will fall in the range of 30 to 70. Investors will commonly use Williams %R in conjunction with other trend indicators to help spot possible stock turning points. By watching how many shares are trading hands and looking for any changes in that activity, trading opportunities can be spotted along with a deeper understanding of the reliability of other indicators on the stock. Blackrock New York Muni Trust Inc (BNY) presently has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of 9.36. A CCI reading of +100 may represent overbought conditions, while readings near -100 may indicate oversold territory. As a momentum indicator, the Williams R% has the ability to be used with other technicals to help define a specific trend. A CCI closer to +100 may provide an overbought signal, and a CCI near -100 may offer an oversold signal.

Investors may be studying other technical indicators like the Williams Percent Range or Williams %R. Alternately, if the indicator goes under -80, this may show the stock as being oversold. The CMF is based largely on the Accumulation Distribution Line; it compares the close value with the high and the low for that same day. MA's can be calculated for any time period, but two very popular time frames are the 50-day and 200-day moving averages. Blackrock Muni 2020 Trust (BKK)'s Williams Percent Range or 14 day Williams %R now sits at -90.48. The Williams %R oscillates in a range from 0 to -100. In general, if the reading goes above -20, the stock may be considered to be overbought.

Blackrock California Muni Trust (BFZ) now has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of -34.22. Generally speaking, an ADX value from 0-25 would indicate an absent or weak trend. 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 signal a very strong trend, and a value of 75-100 would indicate an extremely strong trend. The ADX alone measures trend strength but not direction. When combined with the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI), it can help decipher the trend direction as well. A favorite tool among technical stock analysts is the moving average. While the stock price moved along with the volume change, shares are touching $6.24 at the time of writing. The 50-day is 15.41, and the 7-day is sitting at 15.11. They may also be used to help the trader figure out proper support and resistance levels for the stock.

Investors might have been ready to throw in the towel as the rally stalled recently.

Investors have the ability to approach the stock market from various angles. It is quite reasonable to be optimistic about the investment environment heading into the second half of the year. Many people may assume healthcare and tech would be the easy targets, primarily because that's where the earnings growth is. The next couple of weeks may be the flawless time for investors to put the pedal down and try to develop a strategy that will beat the market over the next quarter.
