Plus DI Above Minus DI for ADVFN PLC (AFN.L) — Technical Focus

Royal Bank of Canada (RY.TO) are being closely watched by investors as the firm's Mesa Adaptive Moving Average (MAMA) has dipped below the Fractional Adaptive Moving Average (FAMA), indicating that a potential bearish move might be forthcoming. Most signs seem to be pointing in the right direction as investors keep concentrating on superior returns from the stock market.

Under recent market conditions, it may be quite hard to be overly bearish. On the other end of the spectrum, having too much self-doubt may leave an investor with way too many what ifs. 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. Finding that flawless balance between the needed gusto and the correct amount of caution may help ease the burden moving forward in the equity market.

Traders may be also be focusing in on the ATR or Average True Range indicator when performing stock analysis. One of the more popular combinations is to use the 50-day and 200-day moving averages. The average true range indicator was developed by J. Welles Wilder in order to measure volatility. The RSI was originally created by J. Welles Wilder which was introduced in his 1978 book "New Concepts in Technical Trading Systems". Searching for value in the current investing landscape may be a priority for some investors. The general interpretation of the ATR is the higher the ATR value, the higher the volatility.

Investors may be studying other technical indicators like the Williams Percent Range or Williams %R. Lotto24 AG (LO24.DE)'s Williams %R presently stands at -54.84. The Williams %R is similar to the Stochastic Oscillator except it is plotted upside-down. Williams %R is a popular technical indicator created by Larry Williams to help identify overbought and oversold situations. Alternately, if the indicator goes below -80, this may point to the stock being oversold. Investors may use the 200-day MA to help smooth out the data a get a clearer long-term picture.

The Average Directional Index or ADX is technical analysis indicator used to discern if a market is trending or not trending. The ADX alone measures trend strength but not direction. Although the CCI indicator was developed for commodities, it has become a popular tool for equity evaluation as well. The 14-day ADX for Ryerson Holding Corp (RYI) is standing at 16.98. Generally speaking, an ADX value from 0-25 would indicate an absent or weak trend. A value of 25-50 would indicate a strong trend. Used as a coincident indicator, the CCI reading above +100 would reflect strong price action which may signal an uptrend. A reading under 30 may indicate that the stock is oversold, and possibly undervalued. Presently, ADVFN PLC (AFN.L) has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of 5.09. Despite the name, CCI can be used on other investment tools such as stocks. The CCI may be used to spot if a stock is entering overbought (+100) and oversold (-100) territory. Traders may use the indicator to determine stock trends or to identify overbought/oversold conditions.

Traders are taking a closer look at shares of Lotto24 AG (LO24.DE) of late. 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 value will always move between 0 and 100. When the RSI line moves up, the stock may be experiencing strength. The opposite is the case when the RSI line is heading lower. The indicator is computed by using the average losses and gains of a stock over a certain time period. Following multiple time frames using moving averages can help investors figure out where the stock has been and help determine where it may be possibly going. Many traders keep an eye on the 30 and 70 marks on the RSI scale. The RMI aims to iimprove upon the widely used Relative Strength Indicator, identifying when shares reach oversold or overbought range.
