We can now take a quick look at some historical stock price index data. iShares Trust - iShares Europe ETF (ARCA:IEV) presently has a 10 month price index of 1.21666.

Currently, the 14-day ADX for Ishares Balanced Income Core ETF (CBD.TO) is sitting at 8.84. Normal oscillations tend to stay in the range of -100 to +100. A reading under 20 would indicate no trend, and a reading from 20-25 would suggest that there is no clear trend signal. A ratio over one indicates an increase in share price over the period. The ADX alone measures trend strength but not direction. When the RSI line moves up, the stock may be experiencing strength. Many traders will use the ADX alongside other indicators in order to help spot proper trading entry/exit points. This measurement is based on closing prices over a specific period of time. The RSI value will always move between 0 and 100. On the flip side, an RSI near 0 may signal weaker momentum.

A commonly used tool among technical stock analysts is the moving average. The RSI was originally created by J. Welles Wilder which was introduced in his 1978 book "New Concepts in Technical Trading Systems".

The Williams Percent Range or Williams %R is another technical indicator worth checking out. Traders may use these levels to help identify stock price reversals. If the Golden Cross is greater than 1, then the 50 day moving average is above the 200 day moving average - indicating a positive share price momentum. In general, if the reading goes above -20, the stock may be considered to be overbought.

Stock volatility is a percentage that indicates whether a stock is a desirable purchase. 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. The Williams %R indicator helps show the relative situation of the current price close to the period being observed.
