First Trust Developed Markets Ex-US AlphaDEX Fund Stock Analysis

Technical stock analysis for Fri 20'th Oct 2017

Hold candidate since 2017-10-19 Gain 0.17%

First Trust Developed Markets Ex-US AlphaDEX Fund gained 0.17% in the last trading day, rising from $59.96 to $60.06 The price has risen in 5 of the last 10 days and is up by 1.26% over the past 2 weeks. Volume fell in the last day by -36 023 shares, and in total, 35 639 shares bought and sold for approximately $2.14 million. You should take into consideration that a falling volume on higher prices causes divergence and may be an early warning about possible changes for the next couple of days.


First Trust Developed Markets Ex-US AlphaDEX Fund lies in the middle of a narrow and weak rising trend in the short term and a further rise within the trend is signaled. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 5.78% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $62.44 and $64.23 at the end of this period.


There are mixed signals in the stock today. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Monday October 16, 2017, which indicates further falls until a new bottom pivot has been found. First Trust Developed Markets Ex-US AlphaDEX Fund holds a sales signal from the short-term moving average; at the same time, however, there is a buy signal from the long-term average. Since the short-term average is above the long-term average there is a general buy signal in the stock. On further gains, the stock will meet resistance from the short-term moving average at approximately $60.24. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the long-term average at approximately $59.25. A break-up through the short-term average will send a buy signal, whereas a breakdown through the long-term average will send a sales signal. 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.

The stock had a Golden Star Signal* on Monday August 21, 2017 in the short-term chart.

* Golden Star Signal* is when the short-term moving average, the long-term moving average, and priceline meet in a special combination. This combination is very rare and often followed by long and strong gains for the stock in question.
