  • Abacus Property Group’s ROE of 19.2% over the past year stood above the industry average of 13.61%. Often called the ‘mother of all ratios’, Return on Equity tells you how much capital is created in percentage terms for the amount committed by a shareholder to a company. But there are multiple other aspects to consider before drawing a conclusion.
  • Company shares of Abacus Property Group (ABP.AX) have seen the Rank Correlation Indicator climb higher over the past 3 trading days, suggesting that it could be nearing a turning point if the reading crosses the 80 mark.
  • The Rank Correlation Indicator, or RCI will find the highest high and the lowest low with a given range and will find out if the security is over or undervalued. It is very much like Stoachastic but with different time periods. Created by Charles Spearman, the indicator oscillates between +100 and -100. At +100 there is a maximum positive correlation between rising price and date.
  • However, if the indicator shows -100, the price falls continuously while the date continues to rise. There is hence a maximum negative correlation. The interpretation is analogous to that for other oscillators. If RCI is higher than 80 (overbought), then a sell signal is triggered, and if RCI is lower than -80 (oversold), a buy signal is given.

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.

Stochastic Oscillator

One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 38.0952. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a buy 8 period(s) ago.

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 26.46. This is where it usually bottoms. The RSI usually forms tops and bottoms before the underlying security. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a buy 15 period(s) ago.

Commodity Channel Index (CCI)

The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is -48. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a buy 8 period(s) ago.


The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a buy 3 period(s) ago.
