Support & Resistance

Hess Corporation finds support from accumulated volume at $66.10.

Support: $66.10 Price: $67.88


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 $2.01 between high and low, or 3.03%. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 2.15%.

The stock is extremely overbought on RSI14 (77). Normally this will pose a good selling opportunity, but since the stock has broken the trend up the chance for a major correction due to high RSI is very small as the stock will find support at the trend broken.

Our recommended stoploss: $65.21 (-3.94%) (This stock has medium daily movements and this gives medium risk. The RSI14 is 77 and this increases the risk substantially. There is a buy signal from pivot bottom found 12 days ago.)

Overall risk:

Very Low Low Medium High Very High

Evaluation: Hold/Accumulate

Hess Corporation holds several positive signals, but we still don't find these to be enough for a buy-recommendation. At the current level we recommend to hold or accumulate in this position whilst awaiting for further development. Due to some small weaknesses in the technical picture we have downgraded our recommendation for this stock since last evaluation from a Buy Candidate to a Hold/Accumulate.
