A popular tool to use when performing technical analysis on a stock is the 200 Day Simple Moving Average (SMA). This value is the average share price of a company over the previous 200 trading days. It is often seen as a trend setter for a particular security, tracking the general direction the stock is taking. When a company’s share price moves above its 200 Day SMA it might hint at a potential upward trend, which could be the case for these five Canada-listed names.
