Stronger technical forecast for Westamerica Bancorporation stock price after Wednesday trading.
(Updated on Dec 08, 2021)

Hold candidate since 2021-12-08

The Westamerica Bancorporation stock price gained 0.69% on the last trading day (Wednesday, 8th Dec 2021), rising from $56.85 to $57.24. During the day the stock fluctuated 2.43% from a day low at $56.18 to a day high of $57.54. The price has fallen in 6 of the last 10 days and is down by -1.31% for this period. Volume fell on the last day by -48 thousand shares and in total, 58 thousand shares were bought and sold for approximately $3.32 million. You should take into consideration that falling volume on higher prices causes divergence and may be an early warning about possible changes over the next couple of days.

The stock lies in the middle of a weak 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 2.84% during the next 3 months and, with a 90% probability hold a price between $55.46 and $59.91 at the end of this 3-month period.

Signals & Forecast

The Westamerica Bancorporation stock holds buy signals from both short and long-term moving averages giving a positive forecast for the stock, but the stock has a general sell signal from the relation between the two signals where the long-term average is above the short-term average. On corrections down, there will be some support from the lines at $55.60 and $56.31. A breakdown below any of these levels will issue sell signals. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Tuesday, November 30, 2021, and so far it has risen 6.43%. Further rise is indicated until a new top pivot has been found. Volume fell during the last trading day despite gaining prices. This causes a divergence between volume and price and it may be an early warning. The stock should be watched closely. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. Furthermore, there is currently a sell signal from the 3 month Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD).

Support, Risk & Stop-loss

Westamerica Bancorporation finds support from accumulated volume at $57.09 and this level may hold a buying opportunity as an upwards reaction can be expected when the support is being tested.

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 $1.37 (2.43%) between high and low. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 3.01%.

Our recommended stop-loss: $55.12 (-3.70%) (This stock has low daily movements and this gives low risk. There is a buy signal from a pivot bottom found 6 days ago.)
