There are few to none technical positive signals at the moment. Calithera Biosciences 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 $6.20 and $6.81. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Thursday April 19, 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.
