Tracking Shares of Vanguard Intermediate Term Corporate Bond Etf (VCIT) — Market Focus

When the price is below the Balance Step, this generally spells a bearish trend. The next couple of weeks may be the flawless time for investors to put the pedal down and try to develop a strategy that will beat the market over the next quarter. The wealth of available information has made the road a bit smoother to travel for amateur investors.

Investors may be wondering how to tackle the markets at current levels. Technical traders may want to still keep tabs on the fundamentals, and vice-versa. As we head into the second half of the year, it remains to be seen which way the market will lean. Dedicated investors may be looking to employ another tool for doing technical stock analysis.

A popular indicator among technical analysts that can help to measure the strength of market momentum is the Average Directional Index or ADX.

A reading under 20 would indicate no trend, and a reading from 20-25 would suggest that there is no clear trend signal.

Traders may use the indicator to determine stock trends or to identify overbought/oversold conditions. A CCI reading of +100 may represent overbought conditions, while readings near -100 may indicate oversold territory. The indicator is non-directional meaning that it gauges trend strength whether the stock price is trending higher or lower.

Traders are paying renewed attention to shares of iShares iBonds Dec 2019 Term Corporate ETF (IBDK).

When the RSI line moves up, the stock may be experiencing strength. The opposite would be the case for a falling ADX line. Active investors may choose to use this technical indicator as a stock evaluation tool. Wilder laid out the foundation for future technical analysts to further investigate the RSI and its relationship to underlying price movements. In general, if the indicator goes above -20, the stock may be considered overbought.
