A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Thursday January 12, 2017, which indicates further gains until a new top pivot has been found. XOMA Corporation has rising volume and it does follow the last lift in the price. This is considered to be a technical positive sign as volume should follow the price-formation. Higher liquidity also reduces the general risk. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development.
