American Public Education gained 0.48% in the last trading day, rising from $31.01 to $31.16 , and has now gained 6 days in a row.

American Public Education 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 $31.32 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 -2.89% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $25.34 and $30.41 at the end of this period.

This stock is usually traded at good volume, and with minor daily changes the risk is considered to be low. During the last day, the stock moved $0.88 (2.87%) between high and low. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 2.38%.

Since the American Public Education has been rising for 6 days in a row, the risk for the next couple of days has increased. We don't expect a major reaction as the stock is in very good shape technically, and therefore hold a positive evaluation despite the very short term risk.

Our recommended stoploss: $29.58 (-5.09%) (This stock has low daily movements and this gives low risk. There is a buy signal from pivot bottom found 12 days ago.)

Overall risk:

Very Low Low Medium High Very High

Evaluation: Buy Candidate

Several short-term signals are positive, despite the stock being in a falling trend, we conclude that the current level may hold a buying opportunity as there is a fair chance for this stock to perform well in the short-term.
