Real Goods Solar Stock Analysis
Technical stock analysis for Fri 20'th Oct 2017
Buy candidate since 2017-10-06 Gain 40.25%
Real Goods Solar lies in the middle of a very wide and strong rising trend in the short term and a further rise within the trend is signaled. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 80.32% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $2.69 and $4.67 at the end of this period.
Real Goods Solar 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 $2.16 and $1.28. 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 October 19, 2017, which indicates further falls until a new bottom pivot has been found. Volume fell together with the price during the last trading day and this reduces the overall risk as volume should follow the price movements.
* Golden Star Signal* is when the short-term moving average, the long-term moving average, and priceline meet in a special combination. This combination is very rare and often followed by long and strong gains for the stock in question.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)

Support & Resistance
On the downside, the stock finds support just below today's level from accumulated volume at $2.10 and $1.81. On the upside the stock meets some resistance just above today's level from accumulated volume at $2.25, $2.35 and $2.37.
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, Real Goods Solar finds support just below today's level at $2.10. If this is broken, then the next support from accumulated volume will be at $1.81 and $1.80. The stock is about to test the resistance from accumulated volume at $2.25 and this may cause the stock to take a minor break or get into a more sideways move for a few days.
This stock may move much during a day (volatility) and with a large prediction interval from the Bollinger Band this stock is considered to be "high risk". During the last day, the stock moved $0.16 between high and low, or 7.27%. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 11.50%.
Our recommended stoploss: $2.11 (-5.60%) (This stock has very high daily movements and this gives very high risk. There is a sell signal from pivot top found 1 days ago.)
Very Low Low Medium High Very High
Several short-term signals, along with a general good trend, are positive and we conclude that the current level may hold a buying opportunity as there is a fair chance for this stock to perform well in the short-term. Due to some small weaknesses in the technical picture we have downgraded our recommendation for this stock since last evaluation from a Strong Buy Candidate to a Buy Candidate.
