ICU Medical fell by -2.35% in the last day from $271.08 to $264.70 and has now fallen 3 days in a row. The price has been going up and down for this period, and there has been a -3.27% loss for the last 2 weeks. Volume has increased in the last day by 31 074 shares, but on falling prices. This may be an early warning and the risk will be increased slightly for the next couple of days. In total, 186 647 shares bought and sold for approximately $49.41 million.
ICU Medical lies in the middle of a wide and 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 -10.37% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $227.05 and $261.39 at the end of this period.
There are few to none technical positive signals at the moment. ICU Medical 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 $268.09 and $279.25. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Wednesday October 17, 2018, which indicates further falls until a new bottom pivot has been found. Volume rose on falling prices yesterday. This may be an early warning and the stock should be followed more closely.
