The Home Bancorp stock price gained 0.88% on the last trading day (Monday, 26th Sep 2022), rising from $38.75 to $39.09. During the last trading day the stock fluctuated 1.14% from a day low at $38.65 to a day high of $39.09. The price has risen in 7 of the last 10 days and is up by 1.98% over the past 2 weeks. Volume has increased on the last day along with the price, which is a positive technical sign, and, in total, 999 more shares were traded than the day before.

The stock lies in the middle of a wide and strong rising trend in the short term and a further rise within the trend is signaled. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 10.82% during the next 3 months and, with a 90% probability hold a price between $41.44 and $49.85 at the end of this 3-month period.
Signals & Forecast
A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Tuesday, September 13, 2022, and so far it has risen 6.31%. Further rise is indicated until a new top pivot has been found. Furthermore, there is a buy signal from the 3 month Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD). Home Bancorp has increased volume and follows the last lift in the price. This is considered to be a technical positive sign as volume should follow the price-formation. Higher liquidity also reduces the general risk. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. The Home Bancorp 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 $39.65. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the short-term average at $38.72. 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.
Support, Risk & Stop-loss
This stock is usually traded at a good volume, and with minor daily changes, the risk is considered to be low. During the last day, the stock moved $0.44 (1.14%) between high and low. For the last week, the stock has had daily average volatility of 1.48%.
Our recommended stop-loss: $37.39 (-4.35%) (This stock has low daily movements and this gives low risk. There is a buy signal from a pivot bottom found 9 days ago.)
Trading Expectations For The Upcoming Trading Day Of Tuesday 27th
For the upcoming trading day on Tuesday, 27th we expect Home Bancorp to open at $38.94, and during the day (based on 14 day Average True Range), to move between $38.21 and $39.97, which gives a possible trading interval of +/-$0.88 (+/-2.25%) up or down from last closing price. If Home Bancorp takes out the full calculated possible swing range there will be an estimated 4.50% move between the lowest and the highest trading price during the day.
Since the stock is closer to the support from accumulated volume at $38.05 (2.66%) than the resistance at $41.13 (5.22%), our systems sees the trading risk/reward intra-day as attractive and believe profit can be made before the stock reaches first resistance..
Is Home Bancorp stock A Buy?
Home Bancorp holds several positive signals, but we still don't find these to be enough for a buy candidate. At the current level, it should be considered as a hold candidate (hold or accumulate) in this position whilst awaiting further development.
