Traders may be leaning on technical stock analysis to help with investing decisions. Investors looking for growth stocks may be willing to shell out a little more for a stock that has the possibility of increasing EPS at a quicker pace. Individual investors may need to conquer self-doubt in order to reach optimal performance when picking stocks. Consistently beating the market may involve heavy amounts of homework, and a necessary rebalancing of the portfolio.

Taking a look at some additional indicators, we can take a look at the share strength. The normal reading of a stock will fall in the range of 30 to 70. The RSI may be useful for spotting abnormal price activity and volatility. The ATR is an indicator developed by J. Welles Wilder.

The Williams Percent Range or Williams %R is another technical indicator worth checking out. iShares DEX All Corporate Bond Index ETF (XCB.TO) now has a 14 day Williams %R of -82.61. A common look back period is 14 days. iShares International Developed Real Estate ETF (IFGL)'s Williams %R presently stands at -16.05. The Williams %R is a momentum indicator that helps measure oversold and overbought levels. The Williams %R oscillates in a range from 0 to -100. Some analysts believe that the ADX is one of the best trend strength indicators available. Moving averages are considered to be lagging indicators meaning that they confirm trends. The ADX alone measures trend strength but not direction. Traders often add the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI) to identify the direction of a trend. Traders may use the indicator to determine stock trends or to identify overbought/oversold conditions. The stock's 50-day moving average price is $53.68 and its 200 day moving average price is $51.78. iShares MSCI Japan ETF has a 52 week low of $45.84 and a 52 week high of $54.90. Generally speaking, an ADX value from 0-25 would indicate an absent or weak trend. The latest reading places the stock above the Ichimoku cloud which indicates positive momentum and a potential buy signal. A value of 50-75 would signify a very strong trend, and a value of 75-100 would point to an extremely strong trend. The Index consists of stocks traded primarily on the Taiwan Stock Exchange.

At the time of writing, iShares S&P 500 Inf Tech Sector UCITS ETF USD (IUIT.L) has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of 140.52. The Average True Range is an investor tool used to measure stock volatility. The CCI was created to typically stay within the reading of -100 to +100.

Moving average indicators are used widely for stock analysis. Used as a coincident indicator, the CCI reading above +100 would reflect strong price action which may signal an uptrend. A reading from -80 to -100 would indicate an oversold situation.

Traders are paying renewed attention to shares of Amundi ETF MSCI East Europe ExRussia UCITS ETF EUR (CE9U.L).

The 14-day ADX for iShares MSCI EMU Mid Cap UCITS ETF (EMUM.L) is now sitting at 19.35. 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 opposite would be the case for a falling ADX line. RSI can be used to detect general trends as well as finding divergences and failure swings. Many traders keep an eye on the 30 and 70 marks on the RSI scale. The CCI technical indicator can be used to help determine if a stock is overbought or oversold.
