Alibaba is largely unaffected by the trade war between the two giants, China and the U.S., but the market still punished Alibaba stock in the last few months for good reason.

Even though much of Alibaba’s revenue growth is from the domestic market, customers may have lower disposable income as a result of a slowdown in global trade.

The good news is that trade relations between the two countries are better today than before the G20 meeting in Buenos Aires. Prior to that event, the two were not even on speaking terms.

After negotiating trading terms at the G20 meeting, China cut auto tariffs imposed on the U.S. and may resume the purchase of soybean next. As international trading activities increase, China’s economy will benefit and consumers will be more willing to spend.

Momentum Indicators

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.

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 39.57. 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 buy 44 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 -170.This is an oversold reading. However, a signal isn’t generated until the indicator crosses above -100. The last signal was a sell 8 period(s) ago.
