Alexco Resource Corp lies in the middle of a very wide and weak rising trend in the short term and a further rise within the trend is signaled.

There are mixed signals in the stock today. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Wednesday January 09, 2019, which indicates further falls until a new bottom pivot has been found. Alexco Resource Corp gained volume on the last day, but on falling prices. In technical terms this is called divergence and may be an early warning. In some cases, increasing volume on falling prices may be considered positive, but that is mainly in typical "sell-off's". Alexco Resource Corp holds a sales signal from the short-term moving average; at the same time, however, there is a buy signal from the long-term average. Since the short-term average is above the long-term average there is a general buy signal in the stock. On further gains, the stock will meet resistance from the short-term moving average at approximately $1.00. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the long-term average at approximately $0.90. A break-up through the short-term average will send a buy signal, whereas a breakdown through the long-term average will send a sales signal.
