First Cash Financial Services stock price down 2.17% on Wednesday
(Updated on May 22, 2024)

Buy or Hold candidate since May 20, 2024 Loss -3.29% PDF

The First Cash Financial Services stock price fell by -2.17% on the last day (Wednesday, 22nd May 2024) from $119.35 to $116.76. During the last trading day the stock fluctuated 2.73% from a day low at $116.21 to a day high of $119.38. The price has fallen in 6 of the last 10 days and is down by -1.47% 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 -22 thousand shares and in total, 165 thousand shares were bought and sold for approximately $19.28 million.

The stock is at the lower part of a 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 $113.52 will give a strong sell signal and a trend shift may be expected. Given the current horizontal trend, you can expect First Cash Financial Services stock with a 90% probability to be traded between $115.35 and $135.36 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.
