Core MSCI EAFE Ishares (IEFA): Tracking the Technicals

Conrad Doyle | 12 October, 2017, 18:03

They may look to the 50-day or 20-day to get a better grasp of what is going on with the stock in the near-term. When the price is above, this typically indicates a bullish trend. The Fund seeks to provide investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses, of publicly traded securities in the Japanese market, as measured by the MSCI Japan Index (the Index).

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. Hefty Wealth Partners now owns 14,471 shares of the exchange traded fund's stock worth $806,000 after purchasing an additional 14,439 shares during the last quarter. Making the transition to the next level is most likely on the minds of many dedicated investors.

As we sail into the second half of the calendar year, investors may be looking to see what has gone right and what has gone wrong so far this year. Moreover, the indicator should be adjusted depending on the characteristics of the underlying shares.

Currently, Ishares Core MSCI EAFE IMI Index ETF (XFH.TO) has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of 103.31. Active investors may choose to use this technical indicator as a stock evaluation tool. Many chart analysts believe that an ADX reading over 25 would suggest a strong trend. Presently, the 14-day ADX for Canada Index MSCI Ishares (EWC) is 31.18. A reading between 0 to -20 would represent a strong overbought condition.

Another technical indicator that may be a powerful resource for determining trend strength is the Average Directional Index or ADX. Investors will be watching very closely over the next few days to see if the trend contiunes or reverses. Williams %R is a popular technical indicator created by Larry Williams to help identify overbought and oversold situations.

Traders are paying renewed attention to shares of Ishares Core MSCI EAFE IMI Index ETF (XFH.TO). As a general rule, an RSI reading over 70 would signal overbought conditions. On the other end of the spectrum, if the indicator goes under -80, this may show the stock as being oversold. The 14-day RSI is presently standing at 58.80, the 7-day sits at 58.29, and the 3-day is resting at 62.90. 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 RSI is computed based on the speed and direction of a stock's price movement. Then the "price" is smoothed using a mofidied Wilders' smoothing algorithm. Normal oscillations tend to stay in the range of -100 to +100. The score ranges on a scale of -1 to 6. A value of 50-75 would identify a very strong trend, and a value of 75-100 would lead to an extremely strong trend. On the flip side, a reading below -100 may signal a downtrend reflecting weak price action.

When looking at technical levels, traders should not overlook the RSI reading as it often can dictate if momentum has pushed past a key metric. A longer average like the 200-day may serve as a smoothing tool when striving to evaluate longer term trends. A certain stock may be considered to be on an uptrend if trading above a moving average and the average is sloping upward.

Turning to some additional metrics for Alta Vista Ventures Ltd (YRLLF), we note that the shares now have a 50-day Moving Average of 0.06, the 200-day Moving Average is 0.04, and the 7-day is noted at 0.06. In some cases, MA's may be used as strong reference points for finding support and resistance levels. Moving averages are considered to be lagging indicators that simply take the average price of a stock over a specific period of time.
