What are the main technical models to analyse a share or fund? (Part 2)

We have already commented some technical models to take into account when you invest (link a post). Moving average and Bollinger bands describe the general trend, but when should I invest or go out? Do I have any signal? There are technical models that specifically report about it.

MACD crossover

MACD are the initials or “Moving Average Convergence Divergence”. It helps us follow the trend, but mainly to check if it is the right moment to buy or sell. If the fast MACD line crosses below the slow MACD line, it is a signal to buy. Otherwise, if it crosses above, it is a sell-signal. For instance, if we look at the chart, we find that the fast line (green) cut below the slow one (blue). Afterwards, the stock chart shows a positive trend. We discover then a momentum for the security.

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

This momentum indicator compares the magnitude of recent gains and losses to determine overbought and oversold conditions of an asset. Then a investor can detect quick turns in the security to decide whether he or she has to sell or buy. The RSI expresses as a percentage. If it is over 70%, it is overbought. If it is under 30%, it is oversold.
