Vanguard FTSE All-World ex-US ETF (the Fund) is an exchange-traded share class of Vanguard FTSE All-World ex-US Index Fund, which employs a passive management or indexing investment approach created to track the performance of the FTSE All-World ex US Index (the Index). The PSAR, Developed by Welles Wilder, is created to determine the point in time when there emerges a better than average probability of a trend switching directions.

The parabolic SAR is shown on the charts as a series of small "dots" that are placed either above or below the price. The moving average can be used as a reference point to help discover buying and selling opportunities. The 20-day simple moving average for iShares Core S&P 500 ETF is 1.87%. Traders often add the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI) to identify the direction of a trend. Some analysts believe that the ADX is one of the best trend strength indicators available.

Stock volatility is a percentage that indicates whether a stock is a desirable purchase. Presently, Core US Credit Bond ETF Ishares (CRED)'s Williams Percent Range or 14 day Williams %R is resting at -21.58. The permissible values for RMI lie in the range between 0 and 100. A value between 0 to -20 would represent a strong overbought condition. The Williams %R oscillates in a range from 0 to -100.

S&P US Preferred Stock Ishares (PFF) now has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of -101.62.

Investors are often faced with hard decisions when trading the equity market. Creating a solid plan and following through with the plan can help investors stay on track and focus on the proper details. If the Golden Cross is greater than 1, then the 50 day moving average is above the 200 day moving average - indicating a positive share price momentum. Active investors may choose to use this technical indicator as a stock evaluation tool. The score helps determine if a company's stock is valuable or not.

Using technical analysis can be a quick way to analyze an equity and decide if it is worth more of your time. Using a longer term moving average such as the 200-day may help block out the noise and chaos that is sometimes created by daily price fluctuations.

The ETF is -6.15% of its 52-Week High and 17.04% of its low, and is now having ATR of 0.58. This can be hard considering all the different market factors in play. A reading under 30 would indicate oversold conditions.
