Is First Financial Bancorp. stock still a buy after falling -5.28% on Friday ?
(Updated on Nov 26, 2021)

Sell candidate since 2021-11-26

The First Financial Bancorp. stock price fell by -5.28% on the last day (Friday, 26th Nov 2021) from $25.21 to $23.88. and has now fallen 3 days in a row. During the day the stock fluctuated 8.45% from a day low at $23.30 to a day high of $25.27. The price has fallen in 6 of the last 10 days and is down by -6.86% for this period. Volume has increased on the last day by 190 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, 316 thousand shares were bought and sold for approximately $7.55 million.

The stock lies in the lower part of a wide and strong rising trend in the short term, and this may normally pose a very good buying opportunity. If the lower trend floor at $23.70 is broken, it will firstly indicate a slower rate of rising, but may also be an early warning for a trend shift. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 11.94% during the next 3 months and, with a 90% probability hold a price between $26.53 and $29.42 at the end of this 3-month period.

Signals & Forecast

There are few to no technical positive signals at the moment. The First Financial Bancorp. stock holds sell signals from both short and long-term moving averages giving a more negative forecast for the stock. On corrections up, there will be some resistance from the lines at $24.93 and $24.54. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. A sell signal was issued from a pivot top point on Wednesday, November 10, 2021, and so far it has fallen -7.41%. 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 rose on falling prices yesterday. This may be an early warning and the stock should be followed more closely.

Support, Risk & Stop-loss

First Financial Bancorp. finds support from accumulated volume at $23.39 and this level may hold a buying opportunity as an upwards reaction can be expected when the support is being tested.
