News that caught our eye:
The Financial Times punctuated the start to 2021 for digital assets with its Jan 4th edition. Not only above-the-fold, but the leading headline to kick-off the first day of traditional market trading was setting the course for an encouraging year ahead for digital assets and should be fueling more FOMO from traditional asset allocators.
Best Intraday Trading Indicators
Moving averages is a frequently used intraday trading indicators. It provides information about the momentum of the market, trends in the market, the reversal of trends, and the stop loss and stop-loss points. Moving average allows the traders to find out the trading opportunities in the direction of the current market trend.
Bollinger bands indicate the volatility in the market. Bollinger bands are of 3 types: a middle bang which is a 20-day simple moving average, a +2 standard deviation upper bang and a -2 lower deviation lower band. The price of a stock moves between the upper and the lower band. When the market is moving and the volatility is greater, the band widen and when the volatility is less the gap decreases. Bollinger bands help traders to understand the price range of a particular stock.
3.Relative Strength Index (RSI)
Relative Strength Index (RSI) is a momentum indicator. It is a single line ranging from 0 to 100 which indicates when the stock is overbought or oversold in the market. If the reading is above 70, it indicates an overbought market and if the reading is below 30, it is an oversold market. RSI is also used to estimate the trend of the market, if RSI is above 50, the market is an uptrend and if the RSI is below 50, the market is a downtrend.
4.Commodity Channel Index
Commodity Channel Index identifies new trends in the market. It has values of 0, +100, and -100. If the value is positive, it indicates uptrend, if the CCI is negative, it indicates that the market is in the downtrend. CCI is coupled with RSI to obtain information about overbought and oversold stocks.
The stochastic oscillator is one of the momentum indicators. The oscillator compares the closing price of a stock to a range of prices over a period of time. The momentum of the stock b=changes before the price, hence, momentum is a useful indicator.
