How to Read Trading Signals

Trading signals are based upon stock indices values and stocks pricing data over 1 year (252 trading days) unless specified otherwise.

They primarily rely upon the analysis of closing stock indices values and stocks prices, volumes, minima and maxima over specific periods and key moving averages:

  1. EMA20: the 20-Day Exponential Moving Average, a short-term average giving more weight to recent days movements
  2. SMA50: the 50-Day Simple Moving Average, a mid-term price average
  3. SMA200: the 200-Day Simple Moving Average, a long-term price average
Stock Index and Stock Data
  1. Index or Stock Name: Click for chart with moving averages and details
  2. Market Close Date: Date of trading available, at market close
  3. Constituent Stocks Trends (Indices only): Click for list of index stocks trending UP, above their EMA20, or DOWN, below their EMA20.
  4. Last Close / Change: index value or stock prices, and percentage chane to previous close
  5. 50-Day Volume Significance (Stocks only): Last day volume comared to last 50-Day average volume
  6. 1-Year Mean / Standard Deviation: mean and standard deviation of index value or stock price
  7. 1-Year Return Mean / Standard Deviation: mean and standard deviation of index or stock returns (close-to-previous-close percentage change)
Position to Moving Averages

Three boxes indicating the number of days the stock price has been above (positive numbers) or below (negative numbers) 3 key moving averages:

  1. Price/EMA20: Price above (or below) EMA20
  2. Price/SMA50: Price above (or below) SMA50
  3. Price/SMA200: Price above (or below) SMA200
Moving Averages Crossovers
  1. Z-Score / 20-Day Standard Deviation: the 20-Day standard deviation measures the short-term standard deviation on the last 20-day period. The Z-Score measure the number of 20-Day standard deviations between the current price and the current EMA20. A Z-Score of 2 is notably used to define the upper and lower bounds of the Bollinger Bands (TM) denoting, if stocks are trading in their lower or upper ranges.
  2. Golden / Death Cross: highlights if an index or stock is at a Golden or Death Cross (if the SMA50 crossed above or below the SMA200, respectively), or if it passed this milestone in the last 5 trading days. Golden Crosses are signaled with a yellow-background cross with a (+) and the number of days it has passed the cross. Death Crosses with a black-background cross and a (-) sign with number of days passed.
  3. Three boxes indicating the number of days the 3 key moving averages have been above (positive numbers) or below (negative numbers) each other:

    1. EMA20/SMA50: EMA20 above (or below) SMA50
    2. EMA20/SMA200: EMA20 above (or below) SMA200
    3. SMA50/SMA200: SMA50 above (or below) SMA200
Support / Resistance

The support and resistance study compares current prices to EMA20, SMA50 and SMA200 moving averages, and minima and maxima over the following rolling periods:

  • 1 Week: Last Week (last 5 trading days)
  • 1 Month: Last Month (last 21 trading days)
  • 3 Months: Last Quarter (last 63 trading days, Fourth quarter of the current year)
  • Previous Quarter (Quarter -1): Previous Quarter (63 previous days, Third quarter of the current year)
  • Quarter -2: Second quarter of the current year
  • Quarter -3: First quarter of the current year


All information and data available on Disfold is NOT FINANCIAL ADVICE. Invest at your own risk!

Past performance is not a guarantee of future performance. Patterns tend to repeat themselves, but they don't necessarily have to.

Successful backtests on past data do not guarantee the future success of the strategy backtested, especially as backtest overfitting may occur: when the price of a stock may fit particularly well a given trading strategy over a given period, but not necessarily outside of that period. Besides, backtests do not account for exact market conditions and may yield significantly different results in real trading practice (fees, slippage...).

Furthermore, even though Disfold strives to provide the best and most accurate data, errors can occur in Disfold's systems, or in our data providers' systems.
