There are few to none technical positive signals at the moment. Aratana Therapeutics 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 $3.50 and $3.71. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Tuesday April 23, 2019, which indicates further falls until a new bottom pivot has been found. Volume fell along with the price during the last trading day, which is technical positive. One should, however, note that this stock may have low liquidity in periods, which increases the general risk.
