Volume fell in the last day by -40 609 shares, and in total, 152 214 shares bought and sold for approximately $896 540.00. You should take into consideration that a falling volume on higher prices causes divergence and may be an early warning about possible changes for the next couple of days.

Pfenex Inc lies in the lower part of a very wide and strong rising trend in the short term, and this will normally pose a very good buying opportunity. A break down the bottom trend line at $5.84 will firstly indicate a slower raising rate, but may also be a early warning for a trend shift. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 74.14% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $10.17 and $12.96 at the end of this period.

Pfenex Inc 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 $5.79 and $5.72. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Monday April 22, 2019, 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. 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 also not.
