Vanguard MSCI Europe ETF (VGK) Under Analyst Spotlight

CCI is relatively high when prices are much higher than average, and relatively low when prices are much lower than the average.

If the MACD is above zero it helps confirm an uptrend; below zero and it helps confirm a downtrend. Many traders will use the ADX in combination with other indicators in order to help formulate trading strategies.

When applying indicators for technical analysis, traders and investors might want to look some additoinal indicators such as the ATR or Average True Range.

Investors may also be looking to gain an edge by following the current technical levels for REIT Index ETF Vanguard (VNQ).

A commonly used tool among technical stock analysts is the moving average. The moving average can be used as a reference point to assist with the discovery of buying and selling opportunities. ADX is charted as a line with values ranging from 0 to 100. 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. A CCI closer to +100 may provide an overbought signal, and a CCI near -100 may offer an oversold signal. DWA Smallcap Momentum Portfolio PS (DWAS)'s Williams %R presently stands at -10.00. A level of 50 would indicate neutral market momentum. The current 14-day ATR for DWA Smallcap Momentum Portfolio PS (DWAS) is now sitting at 0.46.

Investors may be watching technical indicators such as the Williams Percent Range or Williams %R. In general, if the reading goes above -20, the stock may be considered to be overbought. Currently, the 200-day MA for Vanguard FTSE Asia Ex Japan Index ETF (2805.HK) is sitting at 21.63. Generally speaking, an ADX value from 0-25 would indicate an absent or weak trend. A level under 20 would indicate no trend, and a reading from 20-25 would suggest that there is no clear trend signal. A value of 50-75 would identify a very strong trend, and a value of 75-100 would lead to an extremely strong trend.

Another technical indicator that might serve as a powerful resource for measuring trend strength is the Average Directional Index or ADX. The ADX is often used along with the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI) to identify the direction of the trend. The RSI was originally created by J. Welles Wilder which was introduced in his 1978 book "New Concepts in Technical Trading Systems". The RSI may be more volatile using a shorter period of time. This range falls on a scale between 0 and 100. 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 reading over 70 would indicate that the stock is overbought, and possibly overvalued. The RSI is considered to be an internal strength indicator, not to be confused with relative strength which is compared to other stocks and indices. The 14-day RSI is presently standing at 60.30, the 7-day is 60.79, and the 3-day is resting at 47.89.
