IShares 0-5 Year TIPS Bond (STIP) Rises 0.05% for Nov 7

FMR LLC now owns 2,454,499 shares of the exchange traded fund's stock valued at $307,107,000 after acquiring an additional 766,689 shares during the last quarter. After a recent check, Core US Treasury Bond ETF Ishares's 14-day RSI is now at 54.83, the 7-day stands at 67.43, and the 3-day is sitting at 90.59. Although the CCI indicator was developed for commodities, it has become a popular tool for equity evaluation as well. A CCI reading closer to +100 may indicate more buying (possibly overbought) and a reading closer to -100 may indicate more selling (possibly oversold). Using the CCI as a leading indicator, technical analysts may use a +100 reading as an overbought signal and a -100 reading as an oversold indicator, suggesting a trend reversal.

The Williams Percent Range or Williams %R is a technical indicator that was created to measure overbought and oversold market conditions. Presently, 1-3 Year Intl Treas Bond Ishares (ISHG)'s Williams Percent Range or 14 day Williams %R is resting at -80.12. The Williams %R oscillates in a range from 0 to -100. The Williams %R is similar to the Stochastic Oscillator except it is plotted upside-down. A value between 0 to -20 would represent a strong overbought condition. If the indicator travels under -80, this may signal that the stock is oversold. Using the ADX with the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI) may help determine the direction of the trend as well as the overall momentum.

The Awesome Oscillator for Ishares CDN Hybrid Corp Bond ETF (XHB.TO) is showing a five day consistent uptrend, signaling building market momentum for the shares. 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. When charted, the RSI can serve as a visual means to monitor historical and current strength or weakness in a certain market. It uses a combination of price change data and time change data to identify potential changes in market sentiment, thereby exposing turning points. The RSI oscillates on a scale from 0 to 100. On the flip side, an RSI near 0 may signal weaker momentum. The RSI was created by J. Welles Wilder who was striving to measure whether or not a stock was overbought or oversold.

For further review, we can take a look at another popular technical indicator. At the time of writing, the 14-day ADX for Horizons Active High Yield Bond ETF (HYI.TO) is 13.20. A value of 50-75 would indicate a very strong trend, and a value of 75-100 would signify an extremely strong trend. The ADX is typically plotted along with two other directional movement indicator lines, the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI). The ADX alone measures trend strength but not direction. Dedicated investors may be looking to employ another tool for doing technical stock analysis.
