Asia Is Giving These ETFs A Major Boost

Traders and investors will be closely tracking the major economic news to help come to a solid conclusion about which way the markets are headed. Value investors may be searching for stocks with lower price to earnings ratios that possess higher dividend yields.

There is no easy answer when attempting to address the tough question of how to best approach the equity market, especially when facing a turbulent investing climate. This may include starting with a sector poised for growth and filtering down to specific stock that meet the investor's criteria. This may include studying company profits, news, and the competence of overall management. Investors may have different checklists for when it is time to sell a stock.

Digging deeping into the Carter's Inc (CRI) 's technical indicators, we note that the Williams Percent Range or 14 day Williams %R now sits at -81.68. Values can range from 0 to -100. A CCI reading of +100 may represent overbought conditions, while readings near -100 may indicate oversold territory.

The Williams %R is created to provide a general sense of when the equity might have reached an extreme and be primed for a reversal. If the RSI is closer to 100, this may indicate a period of stronger momentum. Presently, SPDR MSCI World Telecommunications UCITS ETF (WTEL.L) has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of 0.00. Used as a coincident indicator, the CCI reading above +100 would reflect strong price action which may signal an uptrend. On the flip side, an RSI near 0 may signal weaker momentum. 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.

Currently, the 14-day ADX for iShares MSCI Japan UCITS ETF USD (CSJP.L) is sitting at 15.35. A value of 25-50 would indicate a strong trend.

Taking a peek at some Moving Averages, the 200-day is at 20.62, and the 50-day is 21.84. 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 ADX is often used along with the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI) to identify the direction of the trend.

SAR stands for stop and reverse and it is a trend following indicator, created to identify the turning point in price action.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is a highly popular technical indicator. The RSI was developed by J. Welles Wilder, and it oscillates between 0 and 100. Moving averages can help identify trends and price reversals. Normal oscillations tend to stay in the range of -100 to +100. A level under 20 would indicate no trend, and a reading from 20-25 would suggest that there is no clear trend signal. By using a moving average of volume, you can smooth out those single fluctuations in volume so it is becomes possible to evaluate the general direction of the volume (i.e., increasing or decreasing) visually, as well as receiving a numeric representation of the volume trend for further use with other indicators and trading systems.

Currently, the 14-day ADX for iShares China Index ETF (XCH.TO) is sitting at 18.16.

Stock analysis typically falls under the two main categories of fundamental and technical. For the next financial year, analysts expect that the company will report sales of $2.87 billion per share, with estimates ranging from $2.68 billion to $3.09 billion. Of course nobody wants to see a significant drop in the value of stocks that they own. The weekly steps can be used to determine a near-term trend. When the price is above, this typically indicates a bullish trend. RSI can be used to help spot overbought or oversold conditions. Alternately, if the indicator goes under -80, this may show the stock as being oversold. Currently, iShares Core S&P Small-Cap ETF (IJR)'s Williams Percent Range or 14 day Williams %R is calculated at -81.95.
