Pulling the Curtain Back on Core MSCI EAFE Ishares (IEFA)

Taking a look at Kokusai Index MSCI Ishares (TOK) stock, we have recently spotted the Percentage Price Oscillator Histogram line above zero.

Shares of Core MSCI EAFE Ishares (IEFA) touched a high of 64.63 and dipped down to a low of 64.47 before settling at 64.63 in the most recent session. The assumption behind the indicator is that investment instruments move in cycles with highs and lows coming at certain periodic intervals. Narrowing in a bit closer, the 5 month price index is 1.08773, the 3 month is 1.08088, and the 1 month is now 1.09248. Then the "price" is smoothed using a mofidied Wilders' smoothing algorithm. A reading under 20 would suggest no trend, and a reading from 20-25 would suggest that there is no clear trend signal. Losing trade signals occur when crossovers occur in rapid succession due to choppy price action. A ratio over 1 indicates that the market is willing to pay more for the shares. As a general observance, the more overbought or oversold the reading displays, the more likely a reversal may take place. Using price and trend analysis will aid in determining which signals to take, such as only taking buy signals when a long-term uptrend is in place. Moving averages have the ability to be used as a powerful indicator for technical stock analysis. 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. The 14-day ADX for Ishares Dec 2018 Term Corp ETF (IBDH) presently sits at 14.47. Many technical chart analysts believe that an ADX value over 25 would suggest a strong trend. It's commonly accepted that a Book to Market ratio greater than one indicates that the shares might be undervalued. ADX is used to gauge trend strength but not trend direction. For traders looking to capitalize on trends, the ADX may be an essential technical tool. The CCI may be used to spot if a stock is entering overbought (+100) and oversold (-100) territory. Different time periods may be used when using the RSI indicator.

Investors may be looking to compare the current stock price of Indonesia Index MSCI Ishares (EIDO) to some of its moving averages. Adding a sixth ratio, shareholder yield, we can view the Value Composite 2 score which is now sitting at 60. They may look to the 50-day or 20-day to get a better grasp of what is going on with the stock in the near-term. The company has a 50-day moving average of $55.20 and a 200-day moving average of $53.74.

The Average Directional Index or ADX is a popular technical indicator created to help measure trend strength. ADX is charted as a line with values ranging from 0 to 100. MA's can be calculated for any time period, but two very popular time frames are the 50-day and 200-day moving averages. The 14-day RSI is now sitting at 53.33, the 7-day is at 62.83, and the 3-day is spotted at 83.81. The Williams Percent Range or Williams %R is a technical indicator that was created to measure overbought and oversold market conditions. Being a momentum indicator, the Money Flow Index (MFI) is capable evaluating overbought and oversold market conditions, using values of 70-80 and above for overbought conditions and 20 and below for oversold situations. The indicator is computed by using the average losses and gains of a stock over a certain time period.

Checking in on the numbers for Indonesia Index MSCI Ishares (EIDO), we can see that the company has a Williams Percent Range or 14 day Williams %R of -58.18. A company with a value of 0 is thought to be an undervalued company, while a company with a value of 100 is considered an overvalued company. As a general rule, an RSI reading over 70 would signal overbought conditions. On the other hand, a reading of -100 would imply that the stock is oversold and possibly set for a rally.
