Only positive signals in the chart today. Crane Company 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 $94.60 and $91.11. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Wednesday August 15, 2018, 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.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The stock holds a RSI14 at 80 and is currently being overbought on RSI. This does not have to be a sales signal as many stocks may go both long and hard while being overbought on the RSI. It is therefore important to evaluate the history of the share as it may tell you something about the RSI-sensitiveness.
Support & Resistance
On the downside, the stock finds support just below today's level from accumulated volume at $88.29 and $88.01.
There is natural risk involved when a stock is testing a support level, since if this is broken, the stock then may fall to the next support level. In this case, Crane Company finds support just below today's level at $88.29. If this is broken, then the next support from accumulated volume will be at $88.01 and $83.67.

Our recommended stoploss: $91.83 (-4.59%) (This stock has low daily movements and this gives low risk. The RSI14 is 80 and this increases the risk substantially. There is a buy signal from pivot bottom found 23 days ago.)
