Only positive signals in the chart today. Fortinet 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 $88.67. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the long-term average at approximately $79.61. 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. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Monday September 17, 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.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The stock holds a RSI14 at 71 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
Fortinet finds support from accumulated volume at $87.23.
This stock may move much during a day (volatility) and with a large prediction interval from the Bollinger Band this stock is considered to be "high risk". During the last day, the stock moved $4.16 between high and low, or 4.88%. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 3.03%.
Our recommended stoploss: $83.06 (-6.07%) (This stock has medium daily movements and this gives medium risk. The RSI14 is 71 and this increases the risk substantially. There is a buy signal from pivot bottom found 1 days ago.)
