The Apollo Investment Corporation stock price gained 0.15% on the last trading day (Friday, 30th Jul 2021), rising from $13.73 to $13.75. During the day the stock fluctuated 1.10% from a day low at $13.67 to a day high of $13.82. The price has fallen in 5 of the last 10 days, but is still up by 1.25% over the past 2 weeks. Volume fell on the last day by -8 thousand shares and in total, 158 thousand shares were bought and sold for approximately $2.17 million. You should take into consideration that falling volume on higher prices causes divergence and may be an early warning about possible changes over the next couple of days.
The stock lies in the middle of a falling trend in the short term and further fall within the trend is signaled. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to fall -6.77% during the next 3 months and, with a 90% probability hold a price between $12.41 and $13.57 at the end of this 3-month period. Do note, that if the stock price manages to stay at current levels or higher, our prediction target will start to change positively over the next few days as the conditions for the current predictions will be broken.
Signals & Forecast
A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Monday, July 19, 2021, and so far it has risen 2.15%. Further rise is indicated until a new top pivot has been found. Furthermore, there is a buy signal from the 3 months Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD). Volume fell during the last trading day despite gaining prices. This causes a divergence between volume and price and it may be an early warning. The stock should be watched closely. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. The Apollo Investment Corporation stock holds sell signals from both short and long-term moving averages giving a more negative forecast for the stock. Also, there is a general sell signal from the relation between the two signals where the long-term average is above the short-term average. On corrections up, there will be some resistance from the lines at $13.78 and $13.90. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals.
Support, Risk & Stop-loss
Apollo Investment Corporation finds support from accumulated volume at $13.71 and this level may hold a buying opportunity as an upwards reaction can be expected when the support is being tested.

Our recommended stop-loss: $13.03 (-5.23%) (This stock has low daily movements and this gives low risk. There is a buy signal from a pivot bottom found 9 days ago.)
