Weaker technical forecast for First Defiance Financial Corp. as stock downgraded to Hold/Accumulate.
(Updated on Nov 26, 2021)


Buy or Hold candidate since 2021-11-23 Loss -4.14%

The First Defiance Financial Corp. stock price fell by -4.88% on the last day (Friday, 26th Nov 2021) from $32.37 to $30.79. During the day the stock fluctuated 6.91% from a day low at $29.94 to a day high of $32.01. The price has been going up and down for this period, and there has been a -5.2% loss for the last 2 weeks. Volume has increased on the last day by 17 thousand shares but on falling prices. This may be an early warning and the risk will be increased slightly over the next couple of days. In total, 99 thousand shares were bought and sold for approximately $3.06 million.

The stock has broken the weak rising short-term trend down. This signalizes a slower rate of rising, but may also be an early warning about a possible trend shift. Due to the trend being broken there will now be resistance at the bottom line of the trend at $31.08. A reaction back to this level may hold a second chance to get out before further falls.

Signals & Forecast

A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Tuesday, November 02, 2021, and so far it has risen 1.25%. Further rise is indicated until a new top pivot has been found. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. The First Defiance Financial Corp. 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 $31.87 and $32.00. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. Furthermore, there is currently a sell signal from the 3 month Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD). Volume rose on falling prices yesterday. This may be an early warning and the stock should be followed more closely. The stock had a Golden Star Signal on Wednesday, August 25, 2021 in the long-term chart.

Golden Star Signal is when the short-term moving average, the long-term moving average, and price line meet in a special combination. This combination is very rare and often followed by long and strong gains for the stock in question.

Our recommended stop-loss: $29.19 (-5.21%) (This stock has low daily movements and this gives low risk. There is a buy signal from a pivot bottom found 17 days ago.)

Is First Defiance Financial Corp. stock A Buy?

First Defiance Financial Corp. holds several negative signals and this should be a sell candidate, but due to the general chance for a turnaround situation it should be considered as a hold candidate (hold or accumulate) in this position whilst awaiting further development. Due to some small weaknesses in the technical picture we have downgraded our analysis conclusion for this stock since the last evaluation from a Buy to a Hold/Accumulate candidate.

Current score: -0.413
