GREEN ARROWS INDICATE TO BUY, AND RED ARROWS INDICATE TO SELL
1) Support and Resistance: When the stock price goes up, hit a certain price, and goes back down, this is called Resistance. When the price goes down and rebound up back at certain price, this is called Support. BUY at support region. SELL if price goes below Support
2) Trend Line: Connect at least 2 points of Support and 2 points of Resistance to make a Trend Line. BUY at Support Line region. SELL if price goes below Support Line
3) Fibonacci Retracement: Using the the famous ‘golden ratio’, we can spot legit supports. Pull 0% point from Resistance until 100% at Support. BUY if price rebound at 50% or 61.8% region. SELL if price goes down to 78.6%
4) Moving Average: Literally a ‘moving average’. For example: moving average 5 means, the average of 5 latest days’ closed prices. This is used to simplify price trend. BUY if ma5 crosses up ma20. SELL if ma5 crosses down ma20
5) Bollinger Band: Lower band can act as a support, upper band can act as resistance. Mid band can act as both support if price is above mid band, and resistance if price is below mid band. BUY if price crosses up mid band. SELL if price crosses down mid band

7) RSI: Indicating trend momentum. BUY if RSI crosses up 50%. SELL if RSI crosses down 70% (from top)
