Gulf Resources Stock Analysis
Gulf Resources gained 0.51% in the last trading day, rising from USD 1.97 to USD 1.98. The price has fallen in 4 of the last 10 days and is down by -2.94% for this period. Volume fell in the last day by -149 050 shares and ,in total, 48 638 shares bought and sold for approximately USD 96 303. You should note that falling volume on higher prices causes divergence and may be an early warning about possible changes for the next couple of days.
Gulf Resources lies in the middle of a wide and weak falling trend in the short term and further fall within the trend is signaled. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to fall -9.9% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between USD 1.62 and USD 1.93 at the end of this period.
A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Friday February 24, 2017, which indicates further gains until a new top pivot has been found. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. Gulf Resources 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 USD 2.01 and USD 2.10. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. Volume fell during the last trading day while the price increased. This causes a divergence and may be considered as an early warning, but it may not be. The very low volume increases the risk and reduces the other technical signals issued.
* 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.
