Let's view some technical levels on shares of South Korea Index MSCI Ishares (EWY). With the strength building, investors might be taking a look at this name in conjuction with some other indicators. The ADX alone was created to measure trend strength. Chande first described the indicator in the September 1995 issue of Stocks & Commodities magazine. "Aroon" is a Sanskrit word meaning "dawn's early light".
If Aroon-Up crosses above Aroon-Down to the upside, it signals the beginning of a potential uptrend.
For further review, we can take a look at another popular technical indicator. Ishares Edge MSCI Min Vol Can ETF (XMV.TO) has a 14-day RSI of 72.43, the 7-day is at 80.07, and the 3-day is resting at 85.76. 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 ADX was developed by J. Welles Wilder to help determine trend strength. Many traders keep an eye on the 30 and 70 marks on the RSI scale.
Traders may be focusing on other technical indicators for stock assessment.
Taking a deeper look into some additional technical indicators, after a recent scan we note that Puravankara Limited (PURVA.NS) now has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of 64.20. A reading under 20 would indicate no trend, and a reading from 20-25 would suggest that there is no clear trend signal. Since RMI readings above 50 are considered as bullish and RMI readings below 50 are considered as bearish, some traders may choose to generate signals on the crossovers of the RMI and 50 center line: sell when RMI decline below 50 and buy when RMI advances above 50. The Williams Percent Range or Williams %R is another technical indicator that may be useful for traders and investors. The Williams %R shows how the current closing price compares to previous highs/lows over a specified period.

South Africa Index MSCI Ishares (EZA)'s Williams %R presently stands at -4.89. The RSI operates in a range-bound area with values between 0 and 100. In general, if the indicator goes above -20, the stock may be considered overbought. When Aroon Up or Aroon Down values drop below 50, this indicates loss of upward and downside momentum respectively.
Crossing over to look at some additional metrics, we note that World Index MSCI Ishares (URTH) now has a 50-day moving average of 82.92, the 200-day is at 79.60, and the 7-day is 84.93. Generally speaking, a rising ADX line means that an existing trend is gaining strength. A lower price to book ratio indicates that the stock might be undervalued. A value of 50-75 would signal a very strong trend, and a value of 75-100 would indicate an extremely strong trend.
