Capstone Turbine Corporation 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 $1.67 and $1.56. 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 Thursday July 19, 2018, which indicates further falls until a new bottom pivot has been found. Volume fell along with the price during the last trading day, which is technical positive. One should, however, note that this stock may have low liquidity in periods, which increases the general risk.

Support & Resistance

Support: $1.58 Price: $1.78 Resistance: $1.80


This stock may move much during a day (volatility) and with periodic low trading volume this stock is considered to be "high risk". During the last day, the stock moved $0.07 between high and low, or 4.00%. For the last week the stock has had a daily average volatility of 6.83%.

Our recommended stoploss: $1.70 (-4.77%) (This stock has medium daily movements and this gives medium risk. The RSI14 is 82 and this increases the risk substantially. There is a sell signal from pivot top found 1 days ago.)

Overall risk:

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.
