Investors have the option to employ technical indicators when conducting stock research.

Bollinger Bands are a technical analysis tool, specifically they are a type of trading band or envelope. This may involve reviewing the cash flow statement, income statement, and balance sheet. The value of the investment in Nuveen Arizona Quality Municipa went from $959,000 to $983,000 a change of $24,000 since the last quarter. The Ontario - Canada-based Sprucegrove Investment Management Ltd has invested 0.42% in the stock. Using this method, a stock that is trading underneath the intrinsic value may be considered a good pick. Traders may use these levels to help identify stock price reversals. The Fund's investment objective is to provide current income exempt from both regular federal and designated state income taxes by investing primarily in a portfolio of municipal obligations issued by state and local government authorities within a single state or certain United States territories. The Average Directional Index or ADX is a technical analysis indicator used to describe if a market is trending or not trending. The ATR is not used to figure out price direction, just to measure volatility. The ADX was introduced by J. Welles Wilder in the late 1970's and it has stood the test of time. The ATR basically measures the volatility of a stock on a day-to-day basis.

Taking a closer look from a technical standpoint, Nuveen Virginia Quality Municipal Income Fund (NPV) presently has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of -63.03. Many technical analysts believe that an ADX value 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 is typically used in conjunction with the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI) to help spot trend direction as well as trend strength. If the RSI is closer to 100, this may indicate a period of stronger momentum. The average true range indicator was created by J. Welles Wilder in order to measure volatility. The RSI may be used to help spot points of reversals more accurately. A move above 70 is widely considered to show the stock as overbought, and a move below 30 would indicate that the stock may be oversold. A value between 0 to -20 would represent a strong overbought condition.

The 14-day ADX for Nuveen Preferred and Income Term Fund (JPI) is now 13.82.

Crunching the numbers for Nuveen High Income December 2019 Target Term Fund (JHD), we have recently spotted that the -DI is higher than the +DI. The CCI was developed by Donald Lambert. Moving averages can be very useful for identifying peaks and troughs. They may also be used to help find support or resistance levels. The stock has a 50-day moving average price of $11.18 and a 200-day moving average price of $11.24. Moving averages are a popular trading tool among investors. On the other side, a stock may be considered to be in a downtrend if trading below the moving average and sloping downward. One of the more popular combinations is to use the 50-day and 200-day moving averages.

Checking in on some other technical levels, the 14-day RSI is now at 40.87, the 7-day stands at 32.88, and the 3-day is sitting at 12.65.

Equity market investing has a way of provoking strong emotions.

As a market becomes volatile, its Bollinger bands will expand (referred to as expansion); as it flattens out they will contract (contraction). Having the proper perspective and staying focused can help the individual investor stay committed to the previously created plan. Chasing winners and holding onto losers may be a recipe for portfolio disaster over the long run.
