Vanguard Consumer Discretionary ETF (VCR) Declines 0.7% for April 13

The Williams Percent Range or Williams %R is a technical indicator that was developed to measure overbought and oversold market conditions.

Let's take a further look at the Average Directional Index or ADX. On the other side, a stock may be considered to be in a downtrend if trading below the moving average and sloping downward. The LSE listed company saw a recent bid of 653.20 and 175510 shares have traded hands in the session. A reading between -80 to -100 may be typically viewed as strong oversold territory. Investors may need to occasionally do a strategic review of the equity portion of the portfolio. A modification of the simple overbought or oversold trade setup is the addition of the 100-period exponential moving average, which is used by institutional traders as a very powerful support-resistance tool. Values can range from 0 to -100. The indicator is non-directional meaning that it gauges trend strength whether the stock price is trending higher or lower. The RSI oscillates on a scale from 0 to 100. Investors and traders may use this indicator to help spot price reversals, price extremes, and the strength of a trend.

At the time of writing, the 14-day ADX for Cornerstone Strategic Return Fund (CRF) is 19.98.

In terms of Relative Strength Index for First Cash Fin Svcs (FCFS), the 14-day RSI is now noted at 57.81, the 7-day is 53.32, and the 3-day is sitting at 44.14. Many technical chart analysts believe that an ADX value over 25 would suggest a strong trend. When the RSI line moves up, the stock may be experiencing strength. Generally, the RSI is considered to be oversold when it falls below 30 and overbought when it heads above 70. MA's may be used to identify uptrends or downtrends, and they can be a prominent indicator for detecting a shift in momentum for a particular stock. Moving averages are considered to be lagging indicators that simply take the average price of a stock over a certain period of time. Buying after a big move to the upside may mean that the investor is essentially paying too much for the stock at those levels. As we run through the next round of company earnings reports, investors will be keeping a close eye on the data that is reported.
