  • Last April, AMD (AMD) acquired the assets and personnel of a small outfit called “Nitero” responsible for making VR wireless technology. The idea here is to ditch the cord that comes out of the back of VR equipment.
  • If you have ever used a VR headset, the cord can get in the way by restricting movement in the real world. To understand fully what I am talking about, check out this video of the game “Super Hot.” It gives you an idea of how much movement can go into a VR game and that particular game is a blast to play. Moving on…
  • AMD in times past has made a lot of talk about how VR and AR are going to be the next big thing in technology. Currently, AMD provides the shovels to the VR / AR market via its GPUs which power the equipment. Yet, wouldn’t it be nice if AMD took the lead in this sector much like Nvidia (NVDA) has with self-driving cars?

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 79.7945. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a sell 0 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 65.46. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a sell 80 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 101.This is an overbought reading. However, a signal isn’t generated until the indicator crosses below 100. The last signal was a sell 17 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 10 period(s) ago.
