How to trade stocks with technical indicators: Cyren, DocuSign, Nvidia, Tesla, Apple, Microsoft

 

Note: The information in this article is NOT financial advice.

 

If you need to know how to trade stocks with technical indicators, keep reading. In what follows, you will find conditions under which Cyren (CYRN), DocuSign (DOCU), Nvidia (NDVA), Tesla (TSLA), Apple (AAPL), and Microsoft (MSFT) stock prices are likely to rise.

Cyren is a cyber security company that uses machine analytics to protect data of other companies, such as their emails.  These companies’ stock price is plotted over time. Each price point is the average of prices over a day, and the window represents a year. Indicators, such as Bollinger Bands, Volume, Relative Strength Index (RSI), and Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD), will be used to give conditions under which the price of each stock is likely to rise. (TD Ameritrade’s thinkorswim platform is used.)

Cyren (CYRN)

How to use Bollinger Bands

When the Bollinger Bands are placed against CYRN stock prices, a pattern can be observed. This pattern can be used to infer when the stock price is likely to rise and drop. When the stock price touches or crosses the lower band, it eventually hits or crosses the upper band after some time (see the stock graph), and vice versa. Sometimes, the price only needs to gets close enough to either the lower or upper band to observe this pattern (see the stock graph). When the midline or mid-band of the Bollinger Bands has a positive (upward) trend, the price tends to stay above the midline, and when the midline or mid-band has a negative (downward) trend, the price tends to stay below the midline.

How to use volume

When the price crosses, touches, or nears either the lower or the upper band, there is an uptick in the volume chart (see the stock graph). The uptick may occur slightly after the price crosses, touches, or nears the lower or upper band. By an uptick, we mean a rise in the volume, where the volume for the day before and the volume for the day after the uptick are lower than the volume that causes the uptick.

How to use RSI indicator

Roughly, when the price rises, so does the RSI, and it goes down when the price drops. When the value of the RSI nears 30, the price tends to cross, touch, or near the lower band, and when the value of the RSI nears 70, the price tends to cross, touch, or near the upper band. When the price crosses the upper Bollinger band and stays above it for some time and the upper and lower Bollinger bands are wider apart, the RSI stays above the 70 line for some time. The trend of the RSI graph tends to coincide with the trend of the midline of the Bollinger Bands.

How to use MACD indicator

When the price has a positive (upward) trend, the cyan line of the MACD is above the yellow line, the farther apart these lines are (or the more they diverge), the more positive the price trend is. When the price trend turns negative (downward), the cyan and yellow lines meet (or converge) and cross each other, and the yellow line is above the cyan line; the farther apart they are, the more negative the price trend is.

On April 13th, 2021, CYRN stock price crossed back up the lower Bollinger band, the RSI value was barely above the 30 line, and the cyan and yellow lines of the MACD coincided, which suggests the price could rise, although the negative trend of the mid-band suggests otherwise; in fact, the price slightly nudged above 74 cents (see the stock graph) but dropped again. By April 15th, 2021, the price dropped and crossed again the lower band, the RSI value dropped below the 30 line, and the MACD lines diverged with the yellow line above the cyan line, which suggests low momentum and a negative price trend. In fact, on April 16th, 2021, the stock price dropped at 63 cents. Under these conditions, Cyren’s stock price is likely to continue to drop after April 16th. The stock price may rise when the RSI goes up above the 30 line, the MACD lines start converging, the price crosses back the lower band, and the trend of the mid-band becomes positive.

Summary

After April 16th, 2021, Cyren’s stock price is likely to drop. Until the MACD lines start converging, the RSI value is greater than 30, the price crosses back the lower band, and the trend of the mid-band becomes positive, could the stock price start rising.

DocuSign (DOCU)

On March 8th, 2021, DocuSign’s stock price started to rise back up and crosses the lower Bollinger band, and the RSI crosses back the 30 line, which suggests the price is likely to continue to rise; indeed, the price continued to rise, so did the RSI, and the lines of the MACD were converging, with the yellow line above the cyan line. However, on March 11th, the price started to drop, which was possibly due to the negative trend of the mid-band that had started slightly before March 8th. On March 30th, the price neared the lower band, and the price later started to rise again; the RSI has gone up after that date, and the MACD lines are diverging, with the cyan line now above the yellow line. Also, the trend of the mid-band has gone from downward to zero, which suggests there may be a change in trend. Indeed, on March 30th, the stock price was about 196.3 dollars and rose to 212.28 dollars on April 8th. The RSI is slightly above 50, the MACD lines are still diverging, and the price has just crossed the mid-band, possibly heading its way to cross the upper band, so the stock price may still continue to rise after April 8th, 2021.

Summary 

On April 8th, 2021, the indicators suggest that DocuSign’s stock (DOCU) price is likely to rise after that date.

Five days before March 8th, 2021, NVDA stock price first crosses the lower Bollinger band then rose back and again crosses the lower band, giving the impression it would continue to rise more; however, it dropped again and crossed the lower band. On March 8th, the RSI touches the 30 line, and the yellow and cyan lines of the MACD, with the yellow line above the cyan line, diverge more from each other, but the price rose on that same day and crosses back the lower band. After a couple of days after the 8th, the RSI kept on going up and the lines of the MACD were converging. Under these conditions, the price was likely to rise; indeed, the price went from $465.22 on March 8th to $552.47 on April 1st. On April 1st, the price crosses the upper band, and the trend of the mid-band slightly changes from negative to positive. Also, the RSI is still below the 70 line, which suggests a higher momentum might be reached, and the MACD lines are diverging with the cyan line above the yellow line, which suggests the positive trend of the price may still continue. Therefore, although the price crosses the upper band, it may still continue to rise after April 1st.

Summary

After March 8th, Nvidia’s stock price was likely to rise based on the indicators. In fact, it rose until it crosses the upper Bollinger band on April 1st. Based on the RSI value and the MACD lines, the price may continue rising after April 1st.

When to buy Tesla’s stocks (TSLA) for a profit?

On March 8th,2021, the TSLA stock price crosses the lower Bollinger Band, but the price had been touching the lower band a couple of days before that date, which caused an uptick in the volume the day before the 8th, which suggests a higher trading activity. The RSI value is below the 30 line on the 8th and starts to go up, which suggests high momentum. After the 8th, the yellow and cyan lines of the MACD start to converge; since the yellow line had been above the cyan line, the price trend is likely to be upward after that date. Indeed, Tesla’s stock price was below $600 a share on the 8th and rose as high as $709 a few days after (see the stock chart). However, since the trend of Bollinger mid-band is downward, the RSI has been going down incrementally, and the lines of the MACD are again converging, the price is likely to go down again; indeed, after March 19th, the price has dropped to $640. If this trend persists, the price may drop more until similar conditions on March 8th happen.

Summary

Based on the patterns of the indicators, Tesla’s stock price is likely to rise after March 8th, 2021. However, the price may not rise too much because of the negative trend of Bollinger mid-band.

Apple (AAPL)

When the price goes up, so does the RSI, and it goes down when the price goes down, roughly. When the value of the RSI nears 30, the price tends to cross, touch, or near the lower Bollinger Band, and when the value of the RSI nears 70, the price tends to cross, touch, or near the upper Bollinger Band. The trend of the RSI graph tends to coincide with the trend of the Bollinger mid-band. When the price crosses, touches, or nears the upper Bollinger Band and the volume gets higher than usual, the RSI stays above the 70 line for some time.

How to use MACD indicator

On March 8th, 2021, AAPL stock price touches the lower Bollinger band, which suggests that the price may rise. There is a slight increase in the volume, which suggests some increase in trading activity. The RSI value is at the 30 line, which suggests high momentum. Although the yellow line of the MACD is above the cyan line, both lines start to converge after that date, which suggests there may be a change in trend, from negative to positive. Therefore, Apple’s stock price is likely to increase after March 8th, 2021. However, the trend of the Bollinger mid-band is negative, and the upper and lower Bollinger bands are merging to the mid-band, which suggests a lower volatility in the price, so the price may not rise too much if it ever does.  

Summary

Based on the patterns of the Bollinger Bands, Volume, RSI, and MACD, Apple’s stock price is likely to rise after March 8th, 2021. Because of the negative trend of the mid-band, the rise in the price may be small.

When MSFT stock price crosses, touches, or nears Bollinger’s lower band, there is an uptick in the volume , which suggests high trading activity. If, at the same time, the RSI value is low, there is a chance it may go up, which would be sign of a rise in the stock price. Furthermore, if the yellow line of the MACD graph has been above the cyan line and both lines are converging, that is a sign of a change in trend, from negative to positive. Finally, if the Bollinger bands are wider apart, that is a sign of higher volatility. On March 4th, 2021, most of these conditions seem to have been satisfied, although the trend of the midline is slightly negative (see the stock graph).

Summary

Based on patterns of Microsoft’s stock prices when indicators such as Bollinger Bands, Volume, RSI, and MACD, are used, it can be inferred that Microsoft’s stock price is likely to go up after March 4th, 2021.
