Green day on Wednesday for Century Aluminum Company
(Updated on Dec 08, 2021)

Sell candidate since 2021-11-15 Loss -10.76%

The Century Aluminum Company stock price gained 2.93% on the last trading day (Wednesday, 8th Dec 2021), rising from $13.30 to $13.69. During the day the stock fluctuated 5.39% from a day low at $13.18 to a day high of $13.89. The price has risen in 6 of the last 10 days, but is still down by -5.26% for this period. Volume fell on the last day by -343 thousand shares and in total, 751 thousand shares were bought and sold for approximately $10.28 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 is at the lower part of a very wide and horizontal trend in the short term, and normally this may pose a good buying opportunity, though a breakdown through the bottom trend line at $13.14 will give a strong sell signal and a trend shift may be expected. Given the current horizontal trend, you can expect Century Aluminum Company stock with a 90% probability to be traded between $13.39 and $17.93 at the end of this 3-month period. A break of a horizontal trend is often followed by a large increase in the volume, and stocks seldom manage to go directly from the bottom of a trend up to the top. Stocks turning up in the middle of a horizontal trend are therefore considered to be potential runners.

Signals & Forecast

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 Century Aluminum Company stock holds a buy signal from the short-term moving average; at the same time, however, the long-term average holds a general sell signal. Since the longterm average is above the short-term average there is a general sell signal in the stock giving a more negative forecast for the stock. On further gains, the stock will meet resistance from the long-term moving average at $14.14. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the short-term average at $13.27. A break-up through the long-term average will give another buy signal, while a fall below the short-term average will add another sell signal and strengthen the general signal. A sell signal was issued from a pivot top point on Friday, November 12, 2021, and so far it has fallen -14.44%. 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).

Support, Risk & Stop-loss

Century Aluminum Company finds support from accumulated volume at $13.55 and this level may hold a buying opportunity as an upwards reaction can be expected when the support is being tested.

This stock has average movements during the day and with good trading volume, the risk is considered to be medium. During the last day, the stock moved $0.71 between high and low, or 5.39%. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 4.71%.

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

Is Century Aluminum Company stock A Buy?

Century Aluminum Company holds several negative signals and is within a very 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: -1.217
