Keeping the bigger picture in mind may help investors when markets are struggling. Tracking technicals and fundamentals may also help provide a roadmap to help separate the contenders from the pretenders. Sometimes the calm, cool, and collected approach will help settle the mind during turbulent market conditions. Typically, if the value heads above -20, the stock may be considered to be overbought. Investors of record on Wednesday, September 6th were paid a $0.1641 dividend. The 50-day is 55.23, and the 7-day is sitting at 56.49. Chart analysts may also use the indicator to project possible price reversals and to define trends. Moving averages have the ability to be used as a powerful indicator for technical stock analysis.

A widely used tool among technical stock analysts is the moving average.

Investors may be looking to compare the current stock price of Knick Exploration Inc (KNX.V) to some of its moving averages.

Investors have the ability to use technical indicators when completing stock research. SPDR S&P Emerging Markets ETF (GMM) now has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of -10.87. Active investors may choose to use this technical indicator as a stock evaluation tool. The CCI was created to typically stay within the reading of -100 to +100. A CCI reading above +100 would imply that the stock is overbought and possibly ready for a correction. A reading from -80 to -100 would indicate an oversold situation. At the time of writing, the 14-day ADX for SPDR Barclays 1-3 Year US Treasury Bond UCITS ETF (TSY3.L) is standing at 36.82. A reading between 0 and -20 would indicate an overbought situation. A reading under 20 would indicate no trend, and a reading from 20-25 would suggest that there is no clear trend signal. The ADX is typically plotted along with two other directional movement indicator lines, the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI).

Another technical indicator that may be a powerful resource for determining trend strength is the Average Directional Index or ADX.

Turning now to some additional numbers, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) is another highly popular momentum indicator used for technical analysis. First developed by J. Welles Wilder, the ATR may assist traders in determining if there is heightened interest in a trend, or if extreme levels may be signaling a reversal. The ATR is not used to figure out price direction, just to measure volatility. RSI is a momentum oscillator that moves in a range from 0 to 100. Many traders keep an eye on the 30 and 70 marks on the RSI scale. A CCI reading closer to +100 may indicate more buying (possibly overbought) and a reading closer to -100 may indicate more selling (possibly oversold). A level of 50 would indicate neutral market momentum.

Taking a deeper look into the technicals, SPDR S&P US Materials Select Sector UCITS ETF (SXLB.L) now has a 50-day Moving Average of 23.68, the 200-day Moving Average is 22.77, and the 7-day is noted at 24.45.
