Newfield Exploration Company lies in the upper part of a very wide and strong rising trend in the short term, and this will normally pose a very good selling opportunity for the short-term trader as reaction back towards the lower part of the trend can be expected. A break-up at the top trend line at £7.93 will firstly indicate a stronger raising rate. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 143.49% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between £10.98 and £19.30 at the end of this period.
Newfield Exploration Company holds buy signals from both short- and long-term moving averages. In addition, there is a general buy signal from the relation between the two signals where the short-term average is above the long-term average. On corrections down there will be some support from the lines at £6.95 and £4.29. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Thursday May 23, 2019, which indicates further falls until a new bottom pivot has been found. Volume fell on the last day without any changes to the price. This does not cause any direct divergence but may be an early warning and a possible "turning point". The very low volume increases the risk and reduces the other technical signals issued.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)

Support & Resistance
On the downside, the stock finds support just below today's level from accumulated volume at £6.75 and £6.50.
There is natural risk involved when a stock is testing a support level, since if this is broken, the stock then may fall to the next support level. In this case, Newfield Exploration Company finds support just below today's level at £6.75. If this is broken, then the next support from accumulated volume will be at £6.50 and £5.95.
This stock may move much during a day (volatility) and with periodic low trading volume this stock is considered to be "high risk". During the last day, the stock moved £0.00 between high and low, or 0.00%. For the last week the stock has had a daily average volatility of 5.42%.
The stock is overbought on RSI14 and lies in the upper part of the trend. Normally this will pose a good selling opportunity for the short-term trader, but some stocks may go long and hard while being overbought. Regardless, the high RSI together with the trend position increases the risk and higher daily movements (volatility) should be expected. A correction down in the nearby future seems very likely and it is of great importance that the stock manages to break the trend before that occurs.
Our recommended stoploss: £7.60 (-3.18%) (This stock has very high daily movements and this gives very high risk. The RSI14 is 91 and this increases the risk substantially. There is a sell signal from pivot top found 1 days ago.)

Newfield Exploration Company 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.
