Moving averages

BlackBerry closed the trading day at $9.29 on May 2, 2017. Based on that figure, here’s how the stock is performing as compared to its moving averages:

  • 27.6% below its 100-day moving average of $7.28
  • 23% above its 50-day moving average of $7.55
  • 8.4% above its 20-day moving average of $8.57


A company’s MACD (moving average convergence divergence) is the difference between its stock’s short-term and long-term moving averages. BBRY’s 14-day MACD is 0.7. That positive figure indicates an upward trading trend.

The company’s 14-day RSI (relative strength index) is 87, which shows that the stock is somewhat overbought. Generally, an RSI above 70 indicates that a stock has been overbought. An RSI below 30 suggests that a stock has been oversold.
