PPOH Line Above Zero for iShares MSCI Hong Kong Index Fund

It can be very tempting to jump into the stock market and start investing. Investors who stay committed to a plan may be able to fight off emotional urges when certain situations arise. Once the portfolio is set up, investors may realize that they need to rebalance from time to time. Investors may be hoping for sustained upward trends where stocks calmly and steadily advance in that direction.

Digging deeping into the iShares Core MSCI EAFE IMI Index ETF (XEF.TO) 's technical indicators, we note that the Williams Percent Range or 14 day Williams %R now sits at -3.53. Many traders will use moving averages for different periods of time in conjunction with other indicators to help gauge future stock price action. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is an often employed momentum oscillator that is used to measure the speed and change of stock price movements. The RSI was developed by J. Welles Wilder. Although the CCI indicator was developed for commodities, it has become a popular tool for equity evaluation as well. The general interpretation of the ATR is the higher the ATR value, the higher the volatility.

IShares Core MSCI EAFE IMI Index ETF (XEF.TO) now has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of 144.26. In general, an ADX value from 0-25 would indicate an absent or weak trend. Many technical chart analysts believe that an ADX reading over 25 would suggest a strong trend. A reading under 20 would suggest no trend, and a reading from 20-25 would suggest that there is no clear trend signal. The ADX alone measures trend strength but not direction. Traders often add the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI) to identify the direction of a trend.

Another technical indicator that may be a powerful resource for determining trend strength is the Average Directional Index or ADX. The RSI may be useful for spotting abnormal price activity and volatility. The Money Flow Index creates a ratio of Positive Money Flow and Negative Money Flow over time and scales it to a number between 0 and 100. Generally, the RSI is considered to be oversold when it falls below 30 and overbought when it heads above 70. A value between 0 to -20 would represent a strong overbought condition. Alternately, if the indicator goes under -80, this may show the stock as being oversold. Presently, the 14-day ADX for iShares MSCI Turkey Investable Market Index Fund (TUR) is 18.66. After a recent check, the 14-day RSI for iShares Core MSCI EAFE IMI Index ETF is now at 58.07, the 7-day stands at 71.14, and the 3-day is sitting at 90.87. Used as a coincident indicator, the CCI reading above +100 would reflect strong price action which may signal an uptrend. Traders may also use the reading to identify overbought/oversold conditions. A reading from -80 to -100 would signal an oversold situation. Divergence between MFI and the price direction can also be indicative of a reversal. Moving averages are considered to be lagging indicators meaning that they confirm trends. Moving averages can be used to help filter out the day to day noise created by other factors. The 50-day is 29.86, and the 7-day is sitting at 30.91. Taking a glance at the relative strength indictor, we note that the 14-day RSI is now at 37.33, the 7-day stands at 24.26, and the 3-day is sitting at 8.54.
