Penny Stocks Showing RSI and/or MACD Bullishness
RSI oscillates between zero and 100. For most penny stock traders, RSI is considered overbought when above 70 and oversold when below 30. Buy and Sell signals can also be generated by looking for bullish or bearish divergences, failure swings and centerline crossovers. RSI can also be used to identify the general trend.
The MACD turns two trend-following indicators, moving averages, into a momentum oscillator by subtracting the longer moving average from the shorter moving average. As a result, the MACD offers the best of both worlds: trend following and momentum.
The MACD fluctuates above and below the zero line as the moving averages converge, cross and diverge. Penny stock traders can look for signal line crossovers, centerline crossovers and bullish or bearish divergences to generate signals.
Because the MACD is unbounded, it is not particularly useful for identifying overbought and oversold levels.
Bottom Line: Often times the best penny stocks to watch and buy are not the ones that have million dollar promotions behind them like SEFE, SNPK and OMVE. if you’re day trading penny stocks and need some ideas, check these 9 to see if they match your investing criteria.
