CERS Signals & Forecast

A sell signal was issued from a pivot top point on Thursday, February 15, 2024, and so far it has fallen -7.95%. 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). Cerus Corporation gained volume on the last day, but on falling prices. In technical terms, this is called divergence and may be an early warning. In some cases, increasing volume on falling prices may be considered positive, but that is mainly in typical "sell-offs". Some positive signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. The Cerus Corporation stock holds a sell signal from the short-term Moving Average; at the same time, however, there is a buy signal from the long-term average. Since the short-term average is above the long-term average there is a general buy signal in the stock giving a positive forecast for the stock. On further gains, the stock will meet resistance from the short-term Moving Average at approximately $2.24. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the long-term average at approximately $2.04. A break-up through the short-term average will send a buy signal, whereas a breakdown through the long-term average will send a sell signal.

Support, Risk & Stop-loss for Cerus Corporation stock

Cerus Corporation finds support from accumulated volume at $2.14 and this level may hold a buying opportunity as an upwards reaction can be expected when the support is being tested.

This stock may move much during the day (volatility) and with a large prediction interval from the Bollinger Band this stock is considered to be "high risk". During the last day, the stock moved $0.0800 between high and low, or 3.65%. For the last week, the stock has had daily average volatility of 5.85%.

Our recommended stop-loss: $2.09 (-4.91%) (This stock has high daily movements and this gives high risk. There is a sell signal from a pivot top found 8 days ago.)

Trading Expectations (CERS) For The Upcoming Trading Day Of Thursday 29th

For the upcoming trading day on Thursday, 29th we expect Cerus Corporation to open at $2.22, and during the day (based on 14 day Average True Range), to move between $2.06 and $2.34, which gives a possible trading interval of +/-$0.140 (+/-6.34%) up or down from last closing price. If Cerus Corporation takes out the full calculated possible swing range there will be an estimated 12.69% move between the lowest and the highest trading price during the day.

Since the stock is closer to the resistance from accumulated volume at $2.23 (1.36%) than the support at $2.14 (2.73%), our systems don't find the trading risk/reward intra-day attractive and any bets should be held until the stock is closer to the support level.
