ACHN Forecast and Technical Stock Analysis
Hold candidate since 2019-12-13 PDF
Achillion Pharmaceuticals gained 0.81% in the last trading day ( Friday, 13th Dec 2019 ), rising from $6.21 to $6.26 , and has now gained 3 days in a row. It will be exciting to see whether it manages to continue gaining or take a minor break for the next few days. During the day the stock fluctuated 0.90% from a day low at $6.22 to a day high of $6.28. The price has risen in 6 of the last 10 days and is up by 0.81% over the past 2 weeks. Volume fell in the last day by -810 693 shares and in total, 772 948 shares bought and sold for approximately $4.84 million. You should take into consideration that a falling volume on higher prices causes divergence and may be an early warning about possible changes for the next couple of days.

- 52 week high for Achillion Pharmaceuticals - $6.46 and low - $1.29.
Achillion Pharmaceuticals lies in the lower part of a very wide and strong rising trend in the short term, and this may normally pose a very good buying opportunity. A break down the bottom trend line at $5.82 will firstly indicate a slower raising rate, but may also be a early warning for a trend shift. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 65.07% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $9.61 and $13.92 at the end of this period.
A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Thursday November 21, 2019, which indicates further gains 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. Achillion Pharmaceuticals holds a buy signal from the short-term moving average; at the same time, however, a sales signal from the long-term average. Since the longterm average is above the short-term average there is a general sales signal in the stock. On further gains, the stock will meet resistance from the long-term moving average at $6.26. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the short-term average at $6.20. A break-up through the long-term average will give another buy signal, while a fall below the short-term average will add another sales signal and strengthen the general signal.
