CHOLESTECH CORPORATION has broken the wide and falling short-term trend down. Firstly a stronger fallrate is indicated, but false breaks and "sell-off" may occur. However, a further fall is realistic and any reactions back to the breaking point (£121.45) are considered to be a "second chance" to get out. According to the fan-theory £95.31 will represent the new bottom line of the next trend, but it is far too early to say this for certain.
There are few to none technical positive signals at the moment. CHOLESTECH CORPORATION 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 £137.47 and £139.74. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Wednesday February 13, 2019, 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.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
RSI14 is 30 and the stock is currently not being overbought or oversold
