Quanta Services Inc Stock Analysis

Technical stock analysis for Wed 26'th Jul 2017

Hold candidate since 2017-07-25 Loss -1.17%

Quanta Services Inc fell by -1.17% in the last day from $34.17 to $33.77 The price has been going up and down for this period, and there has been a 0.06% gain for the last 2 weeks. Volume has increased in the last day by 1.11 million shares, but on falling prices. This is may be an early warning and the risk will be increased slightly for the next couple of days. In total, 2.61 million shares bought and sold for approximately $88.06 million.

Trend

Quanta Services Inc is the upper part of a wide and horizontal trend and normally this would pose a good selling opportunity, but a break-up through the top trend line at $34.30 will give a strong buy signal and a trend shift may be expected. Given the current horizontal trend you can expect Quanta Services Inc with 90% probability to be traded between $29.90 and $33.80 at the end of this period with 90% probability. A break of a horizontal trend is often followed by a large increase in the volume, and stocks seldom manage to go directly from the bottom of a trend up to the roof. Stocks turning up in the middle of a horizontal trend are therefore considered to be potential runners.

Signals

Quanta Services 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 $33.40 and $32.74. 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 Tuesday July 25, 2017, 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.
