3.  HOW TO INTERPRET

A stock’s market price is nothing but an indication of what major participants perceive its value to be. The rationale behind this query is that if prices are higher or lower than the last X number of period then there is enough momentum to continue the price move in a favourable direction.

An expected up move can be derived by

  1. 1. Close Above High: Current closing price is higher than last X days Higher price.
  2. 2. Close Above Close: Current closing price is higher than last X days Closing price.

An expected down move can be derived by

  1. 1. Close Below Low: Current closing price is lower than last X days Lower price.
  2. 2. Close Below Close: Current closing price is lower than last X days Closing price.
