Moving average indicators are used widely for stock analysis. Some analysts believe that the ADX is one of the best trend strength indicators available. Using the ADX with the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI) may help determine the direction of the trend as well as the overall momentum. This indicator compares the closing price of a stock in relation to the highs and lows over a certain time period. Currently, the 14-day ADX for Ishares Silver Bullion ETF Hdg (SVR.TO) is 13.77. A value of 25-50 would indicate a strong trend. For example, a surge above +50 would reflect a strong upside move, while a plunge below -50 would indicate a strong downside move.

In terms of CCI levels, EAFE Growth Ishares MSCI ETF (EFG) now has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of -6.98. The CCI was created to typically stay within the reading of -100 to +100.

Another technical indicator that might serve as a powerful resource for measuring trend strength is the Average Directional Index or ADX. The Williams %R oscillates in a range from 0 to -100. When charted, the RSI can serve as a visual means to monitor historical and current strength or weakness in a certain market. The RSI may be used to help spot points of reversals more accurately. Many traders keep an eye on the 30 and 70 marks on the RSI scale.
