Investors are basically getting LQD exposure but they are also protected against rising inflation expectations. Active investors may choose to use this technical indicator as a stock evaluation tool.

Now the ETF's ATR is 0.07, that's -3.95% and 0.36% of its 52-Week High and Low. The Average True Range is widely used metric that helps gauge the volatility of a particular stock. The RSI may be useful for spotting abnormal price activity and volatility. The RSI was developed by J. Welles Wilder, and it oscillates between 0 and 100. Although the CCI indicator was developed for commodities, it has become a popular tool for equity evaluation as well.

The Williams Percent Range or Williams %R is another technical indicator worth taking a look at.

Global X MSCI Colombia ETF (NYSEARCA:GXG) has negative May 11 day. The CCI technical indicator can be employed to help figure out if a stock is entering overbought or oversold territory. The Williams %R is similar to the Stochastic Oscillator except it is plotted upside-down. A reading between 0 and -20 would indicate an overbought situation.

Another technical indicator that may be a powerful resource for determining trend strength is the Average Directional Index or ADX. The current 14-day ATR for Gujarat Ambuja Exports Limited (GAEL.NS) is now sitting at 13.93. A value of 25-50 would indicate a strong trend. A value of 50-75 would signify a very strong trend, and a value of 75-100 would point to an extremely strong trend.

Traders may be leaning on technical stock analysis to help with investing decisions.

iShares U.S. Pharmaceuticals ETF, formerly iShares Dow Jones U.S. Pharmaceuticals Index Fund (the Fund), is an exchange traded fund. A CCI reading of +100 may represent overbought conditions, while readings near -100 may indicate oversold territory. Alternately, if the indicator goes below -80, this may point to the stock being oversold.

Checking in on some other technical levels, the 14-day RSI is now at 57.46, the 7-day stands at 58.01, and the 3-day is sitting at 53.85. The RSI is considered to be an internal strength indicator, not to be confused with relative strength which is compared to other stocks and indices. There are also moving averages (the Tenkan and Kijun lines) which act like the MACD crossover signals with the Tenkan crossing from underneath the Kijun as a bullish signal, while crossing overhead giving a bearish signal. Different time periods may be used when using the RSI indicator. One of the most popular time frames using RSI is the 14-day. The normal reading of a stock will fall in the range of 30 to 70. A move above 70 is widely considered to show the stock as overbought, and a move below 30 would indicate that the stock may be oversold. The RSI is computed based on the speed and direction of a stock's price movement.
