Many traders will use the ADX alongside other indicators in order to help spot proper trading entry/exit points. Many traders will use a combination of moving averages with different time frames to help review stock trend direction. Getting into the nitty-gritty of charting can be overwhelming for the novice. Vanguard Tax-Exempt Bond ETF has a 12-month low of $50.06 and a 12-month high of $52.07. The indicator is computed by using the average losses and gains of a stock over a certain time period. The ATR is not used to figure out price direction, just to measure volatility. The RSI was originally created by J. Welles Wilder which was introduced in his 1978 book "New Concepts in Technical Trading Systems". The RSI, or Relative Strength Index is a popular oscillating indicator among traders and investors. The general interpretation of the ATR is the higher the ATR value, the higher the volatility. Gaming Partners Intl (GPIC) now has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of -86.52. A reading under 20 would indicate no trend, and a reading from 20-25 would suggest that there is no clear trend signal. A value of 50-75 would signify a very strong trend, and a value of 75-100 would point to an extremely strong trend. The ADX alone was created to measure trend strength.

A reading between -80 to -100 may be typically viewed as strong oversold territory. The RSI may be useful for spotting abnormal price activity and volatility. The data is represented graphically by fluctuating between a value of 0 and 100. A move above 70 is widely considered to show the stock as overbought, and a move below 30 would indicate that the stock may be oversold.
