When looking at technical levels, traders should not overlook the RSI reading as it often can dictate if momentum has pushed past a key metric. Zero crossings are seen as buy and sell signals, with tops and bottoms yielding overbought and oversold information. After a recent check, HSBC FTSE 250 UCITS ETF's 14-day RSI is now at 52.23, the 7-day stands at 54.89, and the 3-day is sitting at 64.84.

iShares Govt Bond 15-30yr UCITS ETF EUR (IEGL.L) are being closely watched by investors as the firm's Mesa Adaptive Moving Average (MAMA) has moved above the Fractional Adaptive Moving Average (FAMA), indicating that a potential upward move might be forthcoming.

Although the CCI indicator was developed for commodities, it has become a popular tool for equity evaluation as well. The general interpretation of the ATR is the higher the ATR value, the higher the volatility.

A widely used tool among technical stock analysts is the moving average. Some analysts believe that the ADX is one of the best trend strength indicators available. The ADX is typically used along with the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI) which point to the direction of the trend.

Currently, the 14-day ADX for Global X MSCI SuperDividend EAFE ETF (EFAS) is sitting at 19.34. Generally speaking, an ADX value from 0-25 would indicate an absent or weak trend. A reading under 20 would suggest 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. Moving averages may be used by investors and traders to shed some light on trading patterns for a specific stock.
