Trend

Alexion Pharmaceuticals lies in the middle of a wide and 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 7.7% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between USD 123.48 and USD 156.74 at the end of this period.

Signals

Alexion Pharmaceuticals holds a sales signal from the short-term moving average; at the same time, however, there is a buy signal from the long-term average. Since the short-term average is above the long-term average there is a general buy signal in the stock. On further gains, the stock will meet resistance from the short-term moving average at approximately USD 133.68. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the long-term average at approximately USD 127.45. A break-up through the short-term average will send a buy signal, whereas a breakdown through the long-term average will send a sales signal. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Tuesday December 13, 2016, which indicates further gains until a new top pivot has been found. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. Volume rose on falling prices yesterday. This may be an early warning and the stock should be followed more closely.

The stock is about to test the resistance from accumulated volume at USD 131.37 and this may cause the stock to take a minor break or get into a more sideways move for a few days.
