Placing the Spotlight on Active Health Foods Inc (AHFD)

The 14-day ADX for Adx Energy Ltd (ADX.AX) is standing at 32.97.

Tracking moving averages is one of the most universally used techniques for performing technical stock analysis. The ATR measures the volatility of a stock on a day-to-day basis. Investors and traders may use this indicator to help spot price reversals, price extremes, and the strength of a trend. Wilder has developed multiple indicators that are still quite popular in today's investing landscape.

As a momentum indicator, the Williams R% has the ability to be used with other technicals to help define a specific trend. Presently, Kina Securities Ltd (KSL.AX)'s Williams Percent Range or 14 day Williams %R is resting at -22.22. Brookfield Business Partners LP (BBU)'s Williams %R presently stands at -6.94. A reading between 0 and -20 would indicate an overbought situation. Traders may use the indicator to determine stock trends or to identify overbought/oversold conditions.

Parabolic SAR (or PSAR) is a simple, compact indicator that can provide some useful information when taking into account additional trends and factors. 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. The ADX is typically plotted along with two other directional movement indicator lines, the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI). Many technical chart analysts believe that an ADX reading over 25 would suggest a strong trend. A reading 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.

Let's view some additional technical levels on shares of First Foundation Inc (FFWM).

Aura Silver Resources Inc (AUSVF) now has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of 32.71. The CCI was created to typically stay within the reading of -100 to +100. Technical stock analysts may use a combination of different time periods in order to figure out the history of the equity and where it may be headed in the future. The CCI may be used to spot if a stock is entering overbought (+100) and oversold (-100) territory. A CCI reading above +100 would imply that the stock is overbought, and a reading of -100 would imply that the stock is oversold.

Traders are paying renewed attention to shares of GasLog Ltd (GLOG). Checking in on some other technical levels, the 14-day RSI is now at 27.26, the 7-day stands at 27.12, and the 3-day is sitting at 20.14. The RSI is considered to be an internal strength indicator, not to be confused with relative strength which is compared to other stocks and indices. The RSI operates in a range-bound area with values between 0 and 100. During a market-wide sell off, many stocks may experience the pain. ADX is charted as a line with values ranging from 0 to 100. The ADX is used to measure trend strength. The RSI is computed base on the speed and direction of a stock's price movement. The RSI was developed by J. Welles Wilder in the late 1970's. Moving averages may also function well as a tool for determining support and resistance levels. Investors may be tempted to jump on the bullish bandwagon when stocks are powering higher. There is rarely any substitute for hard work and dedication. Branching out into uncharted waters may help broaden the horizon and start the gears grinding for new trading ideas. Investors may be on the lookout for the major catalyst that either keeps the bulls charging into the second half the year, or wakes up the sleeping bears. It remains to be seen whether optimism or pessimism will rule going in to the next round of quarterly earnings reporting.
