Only positive signals in the chart today. Aptose Biosciences holds buy signals from both short- and long-term moving averages, but the stock has a general sell signal from the relation between the two signals where the long-term average is above the short-term average. On corrections down there will be some support from the lines at $1.89 and $1.96. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Wednesday April 24, 2019, which indicates further gains until a new top pivot has been found. Aptose Biosciences has rising volume and follows the last lift in the price. This is considered to be a technical positive sign as volume should follow the price-formation. Higher liquidity also reduces the general risk.
