Rex Energy Corporation Stock Analysis
Technical stock analysis for Fri 26'th May 2017
Sell candidate since 2017-05-22 Loss -12.40%
Rex Energy Corporation lies in the middle of a very wide and strong 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 -35.2% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between USD 1.54 and USD 2.80 at the end of this period.
A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Thursday May 25, 2017, 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. Rex Energy Corporation 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 USD 3.55 and USD 3.91. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. 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.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The stock currently holds a RSI14 at 24 and is oversold on RSI14. The stock being oversold is no guarantee for instant reaction up as some stocks may be oversold for a long time. It is important to review the previous RSI-history to get an indication of the RSI-sensitiveness.
Support & Resistance
Rex Energy Corporation finds support from accumulated volume at USD 3.23. On the upside the stock meets some resistance from accumulated volume at USD 3.85, USD 3.42 and USD 3.98.

Rex Energy Corporation is oversold on RSI14 (24). Some stocks may drop long and hard while being oversold on RSI before turning, which increases the general risk.
