Trend

Given the current horizontal trend you can expect General American Investors Inc with 90% probability to be traded between $34.31 and $37.41 at the end of this period with 90% probability. A break of a horizontal trend is often followed by a large increase in the volume, and stocks seldom manage to go directly from the bottom of a trend up to the roof. Stocks turning up in the middle of a horizontal trend are therefore considered to be potential runners.

Signals

A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Thursday October 18, 2018, which indicates further gains until a new top pivot has been found. General American Investors Inc has rising volume and follows the last lift in the price. This is considered to be a technical positive sign as volume should follow the price-formation. Higher liquidity also reduces the general risk. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. General American Investors Inc 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 $36.29. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the short-term average at $34.87. 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.

Risk

This stock is usually traded at good volume, and with minor daily changes the risk is considered to be low. During the last day, the stock moved $0.20 (0.57%) between high and low. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 1.28%.

General American Investors Inc is oversold on RSI14 (29). Some stocks may drop long and hard while being oversold on RSI before turning, which increases the general risk.

Our recommended stoploss: $32.60 (-6.68%) (This stock has medium daily movements and this gives medium risk. Low RSI14 is 29 which reduces the risk some. There is a buy signal from pivot bottom found 1 days ago.)

Overall risk:

Very Low Low Medium High Very High
