Are Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (:XLF) Writing a Solid Enough Story?

Moving averages can be very useful for identifying peaks and troughs. The Stochastics oscillator is used to add confirmation to the trade entry. A reading between -80 to -100 may be typically viewed as strong oversold territory.

The Relative Momentum Index is calculated as the ratio of average upward price changes to the average absolute price change. When the RSI line moves up, the stock may be experiencing strength. The opposite would be the case for a falling ADX line. Different time periods may be used when using the RSI indicator. The indicator is computed by using the average losses and gains of a stock over a certain time period. Many traders keep an eye on the 30 and 70 marks on the RSI scale. In general, if the indicator goes above -20, the stock may be considered overbought.

The ETF's YTD performance is 0%, the 1 year is 0% and the 3 year is 0%. It should be obvious that no matter how well rounded the portfolio is, there are always risks in the equity markets.

Currently, the 14-day ADX for EM Fixed Income ETF SPDR (EMTL) is sitting at 42.62. A reading between 0 and -20 would indicate an overbought situation. The basic use of the Parabolic SAR is to buy when the dots move below the price bars (signaling an uptrend) and sell/short-sell when the dots move above the price bars (signaling a downtrend). A value of 25-50 would indicate a strong trend. Shares of EM Fixed Income ETF SPDR (EMTL) have a 7-day moving average of 49.33.

When applying indicators for technical analysis, traders and investors might also want to check out the ATR or Average True Range. They may also be used to help the trader figure out proper support and resistance levels for the stock. ADX is used to gauge trend strength but not trend direction. The PSAR, Developed by Welles Wilder, is created to determine the point in time when there emerges a better than average probability of a trend switching directions.

At 97 percent, normal monsoon this year, says IMD
In 2016, good monsoon has led to record production of oilseeds, food grains and also triggered a 4.2 per cent agriculture growth. Last year, the country as a whole received rainfall that was 95 per cent of its long-period average.

Investors may use multiple technical indicators to help spot trends and buy/sell signals. The 14-day ADX for S&P Dividend Intl SPDR (DWX) presently sits at 33.66. Generally speaking, an ADX value from 0-25 would indicate an absent or weak trend.

Investors may be watching other technical indicators such as the Williams Percent Range or Williams %R.

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.

EM Fixed Income ETF SPDR (EMTL) now has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of 16.95. The normal reading of a stock will fall in the range of 30 to 70.
