Amedisys Inc lies in the lower part of a strong rising trend in the short term, and this will normally pose a very good buying opportunity. A break down the bottom trend line at $130.74 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 23.4% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $161.34 and $177.08 at the end of this period.
There are mixed signals in the stock today. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Friday August 16, 2019, which indicates further falls until a new bottom pivot has been found. Volume rose on falling prices yesterday. This may be an early warning and the stock should be followed more closely. Amedisys Inc 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 $132.64. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the long-term average at approximately $129.02. 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.
