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. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. Gabelli Equity Trust Inc (The) holds a buysignal from the short-term moving average; at the same time, however, a sales signal from the long-term average. Since the longterm average is above the short-term average there is a general sales signal in the stock. On further gains, the stock will meet resistance from the long-term moving average at $6.35. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the short-term average at $6.27. A break-up through the long-term average will give another buy signal, while a fall below the short-term average will add another sales signal and strengthen the general signal. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Friday February 16, 2018, which indicates further falls until a new bottom pivot has been found.
