Catalyst Biosciences has broken the very wide and falling short-term trend up. Firstly a slower falling rate is indicated, but this may very well be an early signal of a trend shift. On the reaction there will be support on the roof on the current trend broken, which is $8.75, a level that may pose a second chance to hit a runner. According to fan-theory $12.46 will be the next possible trendtop level and thereby pose a resistance level which may not be broken on the first attempt.
Only positive signals in the chart today. Catalyst Biosciences 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 $8.48 and $8.40. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Thursday February 14, 2019, which indicates further gains until a new top pivot has been found. Volume is rising along with the price. This is considered to be a good technical signal.

Our recommended stoploss: $8.55 (-4.30%) (This stock has medium daily movements and this gives medium risk. There is a buy signal from pivot bottom found 1 days ago.)

Evaluation: Buy Candidate
Several short-term signals are positive and the break-up from the falling trend indicates a possible shift for a trend. We believe that the prices around the breaking point will indicate particularly good levels, but we also believe that the current level will hold a possible good buy level for the short-term period. We have upgraded our recommendation for this stock since last evaluation from a Sell Candidate to a Buy Candidate.
