Looking at Key Indicators
Naturally, a cursory survey of superficial price points from the chart don’t say a whole lot about where SHLL shares could be headed. That’s why we need to dig a little deeper and check out what some of the most important momentum indicators seem to be saying.
The relationship between changes in price and the underlying strength or weakness over periods can point out deeper factors in the pattern that can often generate insights for technical analysts through momentum factors. Two of our favorite oscillating indicators are the Relative Strength Index (RSI) and the Stochastic %k Oscillator. In each case, the scoring is on a scale somewhere between 0 and 100, and in case, the levels to watch are “70” and “30”, with the former representing an “overbought” state and the latter presenting an “oversold” state.
With that in mind, here is a look at SHLL shares from this perspective.

If we look at the 20-day Stochastic %k measure, we find it at 89.55, which represents another indication of a overbought outlook.
