Apollo Commercial Real Estate Finance Stock Analysis
Technical stock analysis for Fri 18'th Aug 2017
Sell candidate since 2017-08-14 Loss -1.70%
Apollo Commercial Real Estate Finance lies in the middle of a falling trend in the short term and further fall within the trend is signaled. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to fall -4.82% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $16.68 and $17.71 at the end of this period.
A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Thursday August 17, 2017, which indicates further gains until a new top pivot has been found. Volume fell during the last trading day despite gaining prices. This causes a divergence between volume and price and may be an early warning. The stock should be watched closely. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. Apollo Commercial Real Estate Finance holds sales signals from both short- and long-term moving averages. In addition, there is a general sales signal from the relation between the two signals where the long-term average is above the short-term average. On corrections up there will be some resistance from the lines at $18.04 and $18.16. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals.
* Golden Star Signal* is when the short-term moving average, the long-term moving average, and priceline meet in a special combination. This combination is very rare and often followed by long and strong gains for the stock in question.
