There are few to none technical positive signals at the moment. Acacia Research Corporation holds sales signals from both short- and long-term moving averages. On corrections up there will be some resistance from the lines at $3.07 and $3.04. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Wednesday January 16, 2019, which indicates further falls until a new bottom pivot has been found. Acacia Research Corporation gained volume on the last day, but on falling prices. In technical terms this is called divergence and may be an early warning. In some cases, increasing volume on falling prices may be considered positive, but that is mainly in typical "sell-off's".
