Moving Averages Fluctuations:

The highest trading profits are generally made in strongly trending markets, and the best way to detect trends, and changes in trends, is by the use of moving averages. Moving averages are average prices of a security or index over a specific time interval that is continually updated. Because prices are averaged, the daily fluctuations are dampened into a smoother line that better represents the current trend. The strength of the trend is indicated by the slope of the moving average, especially longer-term moving averages. Moving averages are also used in other technical indicators, such as Bollinger Bands, envelopes, and directional movement indicators.

Because moving averages are based on data in a preceding period, they are lagging indicators. They can only indicate a trend that is already in place. Moving averages based on shorter time spans more closely reflect the underlying current trend, but they are also more sensitive to the volatility of the markets, which can generate many false signals. To minimize false signals, especially in a whipsaw market that trades within a narrow range, multiple moving averages of different time spans are used together.

How to Interpret Volume of Stock?

The volume on a stock chart is probably the most misunderstood of all technical indicators used by swing traders. There is only a couple of times when it is actually even useful. In fact, you could trade any stock without even looking at it!

Stock volume is the number of shares traded during a given time period. Volume represents the interest level in a stock. If a stock is trading on low volume, then there is not much interest in the stock. But, on the other hand, if a stock is trading on high volume, then there is a lot of interest in the stock. Volume simply tells us the emotional excitement (or lack thereof) in a stock.
