On this week’s edition of Stock Talk with Joe Rabil, Joe shows how to use the 18- and 40-SMA lines to define the trend in multiple timeframes. He explains what defines a trend, no trend as well as a transitional phase. He uses MSFT and TSLA for his examples, defining their trends on Monthly, Weekly, Daily and Hourly. He then covers the stock symbol requests that came through this week, including WEAT, PLTR, and more.
