Hot Money Monday: These are the stocks with the most momentum; and introducing the simple moving average | spcilvly

  • We look at which ASX shares are trading with momentum
  • The 52-week high and the RSI are two momentum indicators
  • The simple moving average is also another measure of momentum.

Last week we looked at how traders find stocks that are trading with momentum.

We saw how most technical traders view the 52 week highs as input signals.

That is due to what is called “52 week high effect” – where if a price has broken out of its 52-week range, there must be some factor that generated enough momentum to continue the price movement in the same direction.

On the other hand, if a stock is very far from its 52-week high, analysts believe momentum will continue in that direction.

Simple Moving Averages (SMA) Also Indicating Momentum

Here is another indicator that can be used to measure momentum, that is, whether a stock is in an uptrend or downtrend.

He Moving averages It is one of the central indicators in technical analysis, and the Simple Moving Averages or SMAIt is the easiest moving average to construct.

The formula for calculating the SMA is quite simple: it is simply the average price over a specific period:

SMA = (A1 + A2 + ….. An) / n

where:
An = the price of the stock in period n
n = the number of total periods

The average is called “moving” because it is plotted on the chart bar by bar, forming a line that moves along the chart as the average value changes.

SMAs can smooth price data and cancel out short-term noises (price fluctuations). The higher the number of total periods (n) in the SMA calculation, the smoother the chart will be, which in turn makes it easier to see the stock’s price trend.

The SMA is often used to determine whether a stock’s price will continue in the same direction or reverse a bullish or bearish trend.

As a general rule, if the current stock price is above the SMA, the price trend is bullish. If the price is below the SMA, the trend is bearish.
