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 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.
