When researching a stock like Macys, many investors are the most familiar with Fundamental Analysis — looking at a company's balance sheet, earnings, revenues, and what's happening in that company's underlying business. Investors who use Fundamental Analysis to identify good stocks to buy or sell can also benefit from M Technical Analysis to help find a good entry or exit point. Technical Analysis is blind to the fundamentals and looks only at the trading data for M stock — the real life supply and demand for the stock over time — and examines that data in different ways. One of those ways is to calculate a Simpe Moving Average ("SMA") by looking back a certain number of days. One of the most popular "longer look-backs" is the M 200 day moving average ("M 200 DMA"), while one of the most popular "shorter look-backs" is the M 50 day moving average ("M 50 DMA"). A chart showing both of these popular moving averages is shown on this page for Macys.
