Anadarko Petroleum Corporation gained 1.22% in the last trading day, rising from $63.97 to $64.75 , and has now gained 5 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. The price has been going up and down for this period, and there has been a 1.24% gain for the last 2 weeks. Volume has increased in the last day along with the price, which is a positive technical sign, and, in total, 0.42 million more shares were traded than the day before. In total, 4.40 million shares bought and sold for approximately $285.16 million.


Anadarko Petroleum Corporation lies the upper part of a wide and falling trend in the short term, and this will normally pose a very good selling opportunity for the short-term trader as reaction back towards the lower part of the trend can be expected. A break up at the top trend line at $66.45 will firstly indicate a slower falling rate, but may be the first sign of a trend shift. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to fall -16.43% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $48.22 and $55.53 at the end of this period.

A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Wednesday September 12, 2018, which indicates further gains until a new top pivot has been found. Volume is rising along with the price. This is considered to be a good technical signal. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. Anadarko Petroleum Corporation holds a buysignal 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 $64.78. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the short-term average at $63.10. 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.
