Fortinet gained 0.96% in the last trading day, rising from $72.75 to $73.45 The price has fallen in 6 of the last 10 days , but is still up by 1.23% over the past 2 weeks. Volume has increased in the last day along with the price, which is a positive technical sign, and, in total, 0.24 million more shares were traded than the day before. In total, 1.96 million shares bought and sold for approximately $144.09 million.


Fortinet lies in the lower of a wide and falling trend in the short term, and this will normally pose a very good buying opportunity. A break down the bottom trend line at $71.27 will firstly indicate a stronger fall rate. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to fall -8.57% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $65.17 and $80.38 at the end of this period.

A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Thursday November 15, 2018, 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. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. Fortinet 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 $74.20 and $80.21. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals.
