Technical Indicators for Bangladesh Share Market Analysis

Technical indicators are suitable for trading decision. Bangladesh Share Market is not suitable for trading. Buy short or sell short is not allowed in Bangladesh share market. Nevertheless, you should learn technical indicators to know the price movement of whole market or any specific stock. In this section, you are going to read 9 technical analysis tools.

1. RSI (Relative Strength Index)

RSI is one of the best technical analysis tools. Its values remain between zero to hundred. RSI has three important parts. You can analysis whole market or a single stock by applying RSI indicators. You can learn application of RSI indicator as buying and selling signal.

1. RSI Values Below 30 indicates oversold

RSI value less than 30 indicates buying signal. But you should understand the market movement carefully. You should buy shares when some other indicators suggest to buy. Only RSI indicator isn’t enough to take buying or selling decision.

In most cases, a share price falls down from 52 week high if its RSI below 30. This is demand and supply mechanism. If you know trading strategies, you can trade trend reversal.

As demand for this share increased, supply also increased. At one point, supply exceeds the demand and price begins to fall. When supply starts to increase for any share, this stock price falls undoubtedly. Hence, you should wait for right time.

2. RSI Indicator Above 30 indicates overbought

Traders should not buy any stock when RSI cross over 70 unless any other suitable factors hint to buy. Other factors mean any good news, economic condition, uptrend market, healthy financial condition of the company. Generally, stock price starts to reverse if it reaches near 100.

Wait for some time, this stock price will downtrend in near future and you can decide to buy when it starts to uptrend again. RSI value over 70 indicates high Value at Risk (VaR).

3. RSI Indicator Between 30 to 70 is neutral

Uptrend or downtrend market brings opportunity for traders to make profit. But they need to identify trend at the very beginning. But a neutral share price movement is predictable. Neutral share price increases or decreases in a predictable manner. Less opportunity to make money from neutral shares.

2. Candlestick Chart

Candlestick chart is used to know the price movement for a share or whole market. Generally, traders use this chart to identify trend reverse point to take entry or exit decision. A trader needs enough skill to read the candlestick chart to take right decision at right time.

1. Entry Point- buying time

When candle starts to uptrend from downtrend, traders wait to take buying position. Entry techniques vary from traders to traders. When trend is reversed from downtrend to uptrend and if this trend is confirmed to continue, then traders will entry to buy this stock.

2. Exit Point- Selling time

A successful trader may not sell an uptrend share. But a trader also tries to minimize losses. So, perfect exit time to sell a share when its uptrend price starts to reverse. When your holding price is soaring up, you should wait until this trend changes to opposite direction. Later, at the time of opposite direction starts, you should sell your holding.

3. Neutral Point- Undecided time

Neutral point happens when candlestick chart shows a candle without body. This situation occurs when buyers and sellers remain undecided position. If this is a bear candle, that share under sellers’ control. Hence, buyers have to increase price to buy that shares. As demand starts to increase, that shares price goes toward uptrend.

On the contrary, a bear candle occurs when the stock is under buyers’ control. As supply increases, buyers decrease price to buy shares from this company. So, this share price starts to move downward. But in neutral condition, neither buyers nor sellers can control the market.

In this situation, you should follow watch and see strategy for next movement. Shares price may move up or down at any time. Just confirm the market trend and take your buying or selling decision.

3. Minutes Chart

Minute charts show the price movement for one minute to any extended minutes. It represents bar to indicate price movement. This chart somehow similar to candlestick chart. But, many traders prefer candlestick chart to minutes chart. As the application is somehow similar, you can follow one of them or both in together.

4. MFI (Money Flow Index)

Money flow index indicator is similar to RSI indicator. But MFI considers only value. Moreover, this indicator indicates overbought or oversold condition. MFI below 20 indicates oversold and above 80 indicates overbought. MFL’s value between 20 to 80 indicates neutral position.

5. SMA (Simple Moving Average)

Simple moving average may consist of any number of days. Generally, SMA may show 20 days, 50 days or 200 days average value. By using SMA indicator, you can learn the average price for a period of time. Generally, the nearest SMA shows the more recent time average price.

6. EMA (Exponential Moving Average)

Exponential moving average is similar to other types of moving average. But, EMA is calculated by using more recent data. That means, you can put more importance on EMA than SMA.

7. WMA (Weighted Moving Average)

Weighted moving average also weights for recent data. Present data are more valuable than past data. You can follow WMA price to understand the difference between the present price and weighted average price.

8. MACD (Moving Average Convergence Divergence)

Moving average convergence divergence is a trend following momentum technical analysis tool that shows the relationship between two moving average of a stock price. Traders may buy a stock at bearish when MACD crosses above its signal line and sell at bull when MACD crosses below the signal line. Generally, traders can follow MACD signal line to take buying or selling decision.

9. Beta technical analysis

Beta Coefficient is a technical indicator which indicates systematic risk of an individual stock in comparison to unsystematic risk of the entire share market. In order to know the volatility of a share compared to market movement, Beta Coefficient is used.

If beta value is 1 for a share, this indicates that its price is highly correlated with market movement. On the contrary, its value is less than 1 means that this stock is less correlated with market movement. Moreover, its value greater than 1 means this share is highly volatile than market movement.

As beta indicates price volatility for a stock, more than 1 beta value is better for traders. They can easily sell this stock. On the other hand, Beta Value less 1 is preferable for investors.

If he bought another share at 8 times P/E ratio, his second share is more profitable than his first share.
