Many investors may feel like they have missed out on the markets getting to where they are today.

"At first, earnings season was a "sell the news" event but the market never really cracked despite some strong efforts", Christopher Harvey, head of USA equity strategy at Wells Fargo Securities, wrote in a note to clients Friday.

Moving averages have the ability to be used as a powerful indicator for technical stock analysis. The simple moving average is a mathematical calculation that takes the average price (mean) for a given amount of time. CCI is relatively high when prices are much higher than average, and relatively low when prices are much lower than the average. It is a visual technical analysis system and the charts are created to be considered in their entirety to gain a perspective on the overall direction of the share or index and distinguish higher probability opportunities from lower probability ones. The 14-day ADX for S&P Midcap 400 SPDR (MDY) is now at 17.67. Many technical chart analysts believe that an ADX reading over 25 would suggest a strong trend. A value of 25-50 would support a strong trend. Many investors will use the CCI in conjunction with other indicators when evaluating a trade. 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. This year's performance is 7.36% while this quarter's performance is 4.93%. As a general rule, an RSI reading over 70 would signal overbought conditions. Alternately, if the indicator goes below -80, this may point to the stock being oversold.

Tracking other technical indicators, the 14-day RSI is presently standing at 54.84, the 7-day sits at 57.4, and the 3-day is resting at 65.79 for Oz Minerals Ltd Ord (OZMLF). The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is an often employed momentum oscillator that is used to measure the speed and change of stock price movements. The RSI can help show whether the bulls or the bears are now strongest in the market. This measurement is based on closing prices over a specific period of time. Normal oscillations tend to stay in the range of -100 to +100. The RSI oscillates on a scale from 0 to 100. The RSI may be useful for spotting abnormal price activity and volatility. A reading from -80 to -100 would indicate an oversold situation.

Shares of Micron Solutions Inc (MICR) have a 200-day moving average of 3.65. Moving averages are a popular trading tool among investors. On the other side, a stock may be considered to be in a downtrend if trading below the moving average and sloping downward.
