Using the CCI as a leading indicator, technical analysts may use a +100 reading as an overbought signal and a -100 reading as an oversold indicator, suggesting a trend reversal. ADX is used to gauge trend strength but not trend direction. The ADX is often used along with the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI) to identify the direction of the trend. The ADX was created by J. Welles Wilder to help determine how strong a trend is. They may also be used to help the trader figure out proper support and resistance levels for the stock.

At the time of writing, First Trust Dow Jones Select MicroCap Index Fund (FDM) has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of 132.89. Active investors may choose to use this technical indicator as a stock evaluation tool. The CCI was created to typically stay within the reading of -100 to +100. Traders may use the indicator to determine stock trends or to identify overbought/oversold conditions. RSI can be used to help spot overbought or oversold conditions. As a general rule, an RSI over 70 may indicate an overbought situation.

Ishares Trust Dow Jones United States Industrial (IYJ) shares are showing bullish signs as the Chaikin Money Flow or CFI is above the zero line. The current 14-day ATR for iShares Dow Jones Transportation Average Index Fund (IYT) is now sitting at 1.63. The RSI operates in a range-bound area with values between 0 and 100. When the RSI line moves up, the stock may be experiencing strength. The opposite would be the case for a falling ADX line. If the RSI is closer to 100, this may indicate a period of stronger momentum. Moving averages are considered to be lagging indicators that simply take the average price of a stock over a specific period of time. The normal reading of a stock will fall in the range of 30 to 70. Investors and traders may use this indicator to help spot price reversals, price extremes, and the strength of a trend. Investors frequently try to optimize every decision for success, but sometimes things just don't work out as planned. As markets tend to move in cycles, it may be necessary to align the portfolio to the category that is best positioned to make consistent gains in the future. In fast paced markets, indecision can have a drastic impact. Individual investors may need to conquer self-doubt in order to reach optimal performance when picking stocks.
