Determining whether to buy or sell shares can be assisted by using a momentum oscillator or rate of change (ROC) oscillator. The ROC is calculated as follows: M = (V - Vx) x 100 M = momentum oscillator value, V = last closing price, Vx = closing price x days ago, typically 10 days The closing share price for the 10 trading days before 8 October 2018 are shown in the table (taken 8 October 2018) below. M = (2.61 - 2.6) x 100 = 1 The movement of the ROC oscillator can be used to determine whether to buy or sell shares. If the ROC oscillator is a positive number during an uptrend then it is a signal to buy. If it is a negative number during a downtrend then it is a signal to sell. In this case, there is a downtrend occuring yet the ROC oscillator is positive (McMillan et al. 2011). This signals that neither buying or selling shares is suitable.

One of the biggest online retailers, Amazon, had a market share of 37% in 2017 and is anticipated to be higher in 2018 and beyond. Amazon is a global platform that enables small to large retailers to reach consumers around the world offering a variety of products in categories such as automotive, home, sports, electronics, clothing and more. Alibaba, Aliexpress, EBay and Shopify are also a few known big names in the industry which have also seen successes in the past decade and are continuing to experience growth despite competition due to an expanding industry. Barriers to Market Entry E-commerce requires low capital for entry into the market, thus starting up an online business is relatively easier then setting up a brick and mortar business which comes with certain disadvantages such as targeting market segments, expanding functional areas of business, high operational costs and many more. E-commerce comes with its own disadvantages, however
