American Public Education is at the lower part of a very wide and horizontal trend on short term, and normally this would pose a good buying opportunity, though a break down through the bottom trend line at $25.88 will give a strong sales signal and a trend shift may be expected. Given the current horizontal trend, you can expect American Public Education with a 90% probability to be traded between $26.25 and $34.18 at the end of this period with 90% probability. A break of a horizontal trend is often followed by a large increase in the volume, and stocks seldom manage to go directly from the bottom of a trend up to the roof. Stocks turning up in the middle of a horizontal trend are therefore considered to be potential runners.
There are few to none technical positive signals at the moment. American Public Education holds a buy signal 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 $30.07. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the short-term average at $26.67. 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. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Tuesday August 13, 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.
