The Average Directional Index or ADX is technical analysis indicator used to discern if a market is trending or not trending.

When analyzing volume, determine the strength or weakness of a move. The longer the period of the moving average, the smoother the price movement is.

BP Plc has emerged as the front-runner to buy BHP Billiton's onshore oil and gas operations in the USA, according to a person familiar with the matter. The price target set by analyst is also to be considered while investing as it suggests to what extent the stock will rise or fall in the near future. Many value investors look for stocks that are at or near their 52 week low, but this metric alone does not indicate whether a stock is under-valued.

A cheap stock isn't a good investment if the stock is priced accurately. The stock has performed -3.70% around last thirty days, and changed 9.46% over the last three months. Analysts use a stock's beta, which measures the volatility of a stock compared to the overall market, to measure systematic risk. The quick ratio of 1.4 is a measure of how well a company can meet its short-term financial liabilities with quick assets (cash and cash equivalents, short-term marketable securities, and accounts receivable). When the price over the last 200 days is moving with increasing trend, look for buy opportunities and when it shows decreasing trend the price is below the last 200 days, look for sell opportunities. For this relative risk measurement, BG has beta value of 1.17. BBL has a beta of 1.26.

Active and passive investors always require every bit of information available regarding his chosen security and this include keeping close watch on fundamental and technical data. RSI for instance is now at 33.44. To get a sense of "value" we must compare the current price to some measure of intrinsic value such as a price target. Different time periods may be used when using the RSI indicator. According to Wilder, any number above 70 should be considered overbought and any number below 30 should be considered oversold.
