ALB Signals & Forecast

There are mixed signals in the stock today. The Albemarle 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.
