ARACRUZ CELLULOSE S A Stock Analysis
Technical stock analysis for Tue 14'th Aug 2018
|Shorts||15.67% ( 2018-07-31 )|
ARACRUZ CELLULOSE S A fell by -2.93% in the last day from $21.17 to $20.55 The price has risen in 7 of the last 10 days and is up by 27.72% over the past 2 weeks. Volume fell in the last day along with the stock, which is actually a good sign as volume should follow the stock. In the last day the trading volume fell by -30 399 shares and in total 142 545 shares bought and sold for approximately $2.93 million.
ARACRUZ CELLULOSE S A lies in the upper part of a very wide and strong rising 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 $21.23 will firstly indicate a stronger raising rate. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 19.83% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $19.49 and $25.43 at the end of this period.
ARACRUZ CELLULOSE S A holds buy signals from both short- and long-term moving averages. In addition, there is a general buy signal from the relation between the two signals where the short-term average is above the long-term average. On corrections down there will be some support from the lines at $19.56 and $16.74. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Monday August 13, 2018, which indicates further falls until a new bottom pivot has been found. Volume fell together with the price during the last trading day and this reduces the overall risk as volume should follow the price movements.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The stock holds a RSI14 at 73 and is currently being overbought on RSI. This does not have to be a sales signal as many stocks may go both long and hard while being overbought on the RSI. It is therefore important to evaluate the history of the share as it may tell you something about the RSI-sensitiveness.
Support & Resistance
ARACRUZ CELLULOSE S A finds support from accumulated volume at $20.03.
This stock may move much during a day (volatility) and with a large prediction interval from the Bollinger Band this stock is considered to be "high risk". During the last day, the stock moved $0.99 between high and low, or 4.86%. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 9.68%.
The stock is overbought on RSI14 and the RSI has been falling for the last couple of days. This together with the fact that the stock is in the upper part of the trend poses a possible good selling opportunity for the short-term trader. However, one should note that some stocks may go long and hard while being overbought. Regardless, the high RSI together with the trend position increases the risk and higher daily movements (volatility) should be expected. A correction down in the nearby future seems very likely and it is of great importance that the stock manages to break the trend before that occurs.
Our recommended stoploss: $19.33 (-5.94%) (This stock has very high daily movements and this gives very high risk. The RSI14 is 73 and this increases the risk substantially. There is a sell signal from pivot top found 1 days ago.)
Very Low Low Medium High Very High
Several short-term signals, along with a general good trend, are positive and 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. Due to some small weaknesses in the technical picture we have downgraded our recommendation for this stock since last evaluation from a Strong Buy Candidate to a Buy Candidate.Click for Top 5 Buy Candidates
