SPDR Long Term Corporate Bond Portfolio ETF (SPLB): PPOH Line Below Zero


Investors may be seeking to get some clarity about a certain stock's history, and eventually try to project the future. Even the most praised stocks may not be able to withstand an overall market downturn. SPDR Index Shares Fund SPDR Portfolio World ex- US ETF has a 1 year low of $26.25 and a 1 year high of $32.64. The ATR may assist traders with figuring out the strength of a breakout or reversal in price. The ADX was introduced by J. Welles Wilder in the late 1970's and it has stood the test of time. Simply put, the ATR determines the volatility of a security over a given period of time, or the tendency of the security to move one direction or another.

Currently, the 14-day ADX for Short-Term Muni Bond ETF SPDR (SHM) is sitting at 19.93. Many technical analysts believe that an ADX value over 25 would suggest a strong trend. A value of 25-50 would support a strong trend. A value of 50-75 would identify a very strong trend, and a value of 75-100 would lead to an extremely strong trend.

The Average Directional Index or ADX is a popular technical indicator created to help measure trend strength. The ADX is typically plotted along with two other directional movement indicator lines, the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI). The RSI was created by J. Welles Wilder who was striving to measure whether or not a stock was overbought or oversold. The RSI may be useful for spotting abnormal price activity and volatility. Values can range from 0 to -100. Many traders keep an eye on the 30 and 70 marks on the RSI scale. Active traders may be carefully tracking the indicator to see if the position is pointing to the stock as a sell. If the indicator travels under -80, this may signal that the stock is oversold.

Shares of Interm-Term Treasury ETF SPDR (ITE) have a 200-day moving average of 59.77.

We'll get into the lackluster day he had as a passer later, but Bortles made plays when it counted the most with his feet. It isn't the kind of football that piles up style points and makes for riveting television.

Presently, SPDR Emerging Markets Portfolio ETF (SPEM) has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of 73.18. 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. RSI can be used to help spot overbought or oversold conditions. Using a bigger time frame to assess the moving average such as the 200-day, may help block out the noise and chaos that is often caused by daily price fluctuations. Moving averages are considered to be lagging indicators meaning that they confirm trends. On the other side, a stock may be considered to be in a downtrend if trading below the moving average and sloping downward.

Over the course of the day 95,139 shares traded hands, as compared to an average volume of 49,590 over the last 30 days for iShares Short-Term National Muni Bond (NYSEARCA:SUB).

Taking a glance at the relative strength indictor, we note that the 14-day RSI is now at 51.78, the 7-day stands at 53.77, and the 3-day is sitting at 59.75.

Stock market knowledge can be highly powerful.
