While it might be very important for investors to know exactly what is going on with their portfolios, it should be noted that short-term market fluctuations have the tendency to be quite volatile.

The Williams %R is a momentum indicator that helps measure oversold and overbought levels. Poland Index MSCI Ishares (EPOL) now has a 14 day Williams %R of -52.6.

The ADX is often used along with the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI) to identify the direction of the trend. The RSI was developed by J. Welles Wilder. ADX is used to gauge trend strength but not trend direction. The original guidelines focused on creating buy/sell signals when the reading moved above +100 or below -100. The ADX alone was created to measure trend strength. After a recent check, the 14-day RSIfor DB X-Trackers Dbx MSCI Emerging (XMEM.L) is now at 38.46, the 7-day stands at 32.52, and the 3-day is sitting at 13.95. This measurement is based on closing prices over a specific period of time. The RSI oscillates on a scale from 0 to 100. The RSI value will always move between 0 and 100. 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, an RSI near 0 may signal weaker momentum. A certain stock may be considered to be on an uptrend if trading above a moving average and the average is sloping upward. The ADX is a technical indicator developed by J. Welles Wilder used to determine the strength of a trend.

Investors may be trying to figure out what stocks will give a boost to portfolio performance over the next few months. One of the more popular combinations is to use the 50-day and 200-day moving averages. Many sharp investors may have taken a considerable amount of time crafting a unique strategy.
