Valuable Technical Indicators for Determining When to Buy & Sell Stock

Volume is the fuel that drives stocks.

If the markets have made a strong price move either up or down, then the perceived strength of that move depends on the volume for that particular period.

How does light & heavy trading volume influence the price of stocks?

In this lecture, we will take a look at some charts that illustrate this idea of buying and selling pressures.

Moving averages are a powerful statistic to look at with trending stocks.

There are simple and exponential moving averages. Simple moving averages are evenly weighted, therefore every period carries the same weight. Exponential moving averages place more weight on recent price action, which reduces the lag.

Identifying trends within moving averages.

We will take a look at up trends, down trends, and bullish/bearish crossovers.
