Trading Watch: Percentage Price Oscillator is Above Signal for Aviva PLC (AVVIY)

In terms of moving averages, the 200-day is now at 13.16, the 50-day is 13.78, and the 7-day is resting at 13.82. In general, if the reading goes above -20, the stock may be considered to be overbought.

Similar to the RSI, the RMI fluctuates between 0-100, where a reading crossing 70 would indicate overbought territory and under 30 Oversold. A CCI reading above +100 would imply that the stock is overbought and possibly ready for a correction.

The Williams Percent Range or Williams %R is another technical indicator worth checking out. ADX is used to gauge trend strength but not trend direction. The ADX is typically plotted along with two other directional movement indicator lines, the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI). Traders and investors will no doubt be closely monitoring the markets as we move into the second half of the year. The RSI value will always move between 0 and 100. Many traders will use the ADX alongside other indicators in order to help spot proper trading entry/exit points. The 14-day ADX presently sits at 14.68. In general, and ADX value from 0-25 would represent an absent or weak trend. A value of 25-50 would support a strong trend. Used as a coincident indicator, the CCI reading above +100 would reflect strong price action which may signal an uptrend. Sandfire Resources NL (SFR.AX) now has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of -125.57. The Williams %R is a momentum indicator that helps measure oversold and overbought levels. CCI generally measures the current price relative to the average price level over a specific time period. This method of adaptation features a fast and a slow moving average so that the composite moving average swiftly responds to price changes and holds the average value until the next bar's close.

When applying indicators for technical analysis, traders and investors might want to look at the ATR or Average True Range. The simple moving average is a mathematical calculation that takes the average price (mean) for a given amount of time. "This modification is called the relative momentum index (RMI), in which momentum is substituted for strength, because a momentum index is usually obtained by creating a moving average of the most recent closing price compared with the close Y days in the past". Following multiple time frames using moving averages can help investors figure out where the stock has been and help determine where it may be possibly going.

Crossing over to look at some additional metrics, we note that WisdomTree Japan Equity UCITS ETF USD Hedged (DXJP.L) now has a 50-day moving average of 1049.70, the 200-day is at 1023.45, and the 7-day is 1074.00.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is a momentum oscillator that measures the speed and change of stock price movements. First developed by J. Welles Wilder, the ATR may help traders in determining if there is heightened interest in a trend, or if extreme levels may be indicating a reversal. Generally, the RSI is considered to be oversold when it falls below 30 and overbought when it heads above 70. The current 14-day RSI is noted at 66.19, the 7-day is 70.77, and the 3-day is seen at 69.64.

Investors may be looking for the next positive catalyst to create a solid breakout. Individuals with longer-term mindsets may have completely different strategies than those who trade in the short-term. Staying on top of the investing scene even when everything is good may help to prepare if conditions change and the climate starts to worsen. Navigating the bull market may make things a bit easier for some and much harder for others.

Market watchers diligently track the companies they think can do well to grow earnings.
