American Public Education stock price ended on $21.25 on Friday after losing 0.93%
(Updated on Nov 26, 2021)


Sell candidate since 2021-11-09 Loss -14.80%

The American Public Education stock price fell by -0.93% on the last day (Friday, 26th Nov 2021) from $21.45 to $21.25. and has now fallen 10 days in a row. During the day the stock fluctuated 3.49% from a day low at $20.65 to a day high of $21.37. The price has fallen in 9 of the last 10 days and is down by -15% for this period. Volume fell on the last day along with the stock, which is actually a good sign as volume should follow the stock. On the last day, the trading volume fell by -77 thousand shares and in total, 70 thousand shares were bought and sold for approximately $1.49 million.

The stock has broken the wide and falling short-term trend down. Firstly a stronger fallrate is indicated, but false breaks and "sell-off" may occur. However, a further fall is realistic and any reactions back to the breaking point ($23.22) are considered to be a "second chance" to get out. According to the fan-theory $20.86 will represent the new bottom line of the next trend, but it is far too early to say this for certain.

Signals & Forecast

There are few to no technical positive signals at the moment. The American Public Education 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 $22.81 and $24.70. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. A sell signal was issued from a pivot top point on Friday, November 05, 2021, and so far it has fallen -19.08%. Further fall is indicated until a new bottom pivot has been found. Furthermore, there is currently a sell signal from the 3 month Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD). Volume fell along with the price during the last trading day, which is technical positive. One should, however, note that this stock may have low liquidity in periods, which increases the general risk.

Support, Risk & Stop-loss

There is no support from accumulated volume below today's level and given the right condition the stock may perform very badly in the next couple of days.

This stock has average movements during the day, but be aware of low or falling volume as this increases the risk. During the last day, the stock moved $0.72 between high and low, or 3.49%. For the last week the stock has had a daily average volatility of 4.94%.

American Public Education is oversold on RSI14 (9). Some stocks may fall long and hard while being oversold on RSI, but stocks that are heavily oversold on RSI often pose good re-bounce chance and played well it can be a buy candidate.

Our recommended stop-loss: We hold an negative evaluation for this stock. No stop-loss is set.

Is American Public Education stock A Buy?

American Public Education holds several negative signals and is within a wide and falling trend, so we believe it will still perform weakly in the next couple of days or weeks. We therefore hold a negative evaluation of this stock.

Current score: -5.991
