StarTek Inc Stock Analysis

Technical stock analysis for Tue 23'rd May 2017

Buy candidate since 2017-05-18 Gain 9.22%

StarTek Inc gained 2.52% in the last trading day, rising from USD 11.09 to USD 11.37 , and has now gained 5 days in a row. It will be exciting to see whether it manages to continue gaining or take a minor break for the next few days. The price has risen in 7 of the last 10 days and is up by 28.33% over the past 2 weeks. Volume has increased in the last day along with the price, which is a positive technical sign, and, in total, 124 more shares were traded than the day before. In total, 92 093 shares bought and sold for approximately USD 1.05 million.

Trend

StarTek Inc has broken the wide and strong rising the short-term trend up and an even stronger rising rate is indicated. For any reaction back there will now be support on the roof on the current trend broken at USD 10.77, a level that may pose a second chance to hit a runner. According to fan-theory USD 12.53 will be the next possible trend-top level and thereby pose a resistance level which may not be broken at the first attempt.

Signals

Only positive signals in the chart today. StarTek 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 USD 10.69 and USD 9.37. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Wednesday May 17, 2017, which indicates further gains until a new top pivot has been found. StarTek Inc has rising volume and follows the last lift in the price. This is considered to be a technical positive sign as volume should follow the price-formation. Higher liquidity also reduces the general risk.

The stock had a Golden Star Signal* on Wednesday April 12, 2017 in the mediumterm chart.

* 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)

The stock holds a RSI14 at 76 and is currently being overbought on RSI. This does not have to be a sales signal as many stocks may go both long and hard while being overbought on the RSI. It is therefore important to evaluate the history of the share as it may tell you something about the RSI-sensitiveness.

Support & Resistance

On the downside, the stock finds support just below today's level from accumulated volume at USD 10.59 and USD 10.48. There is no resistance from accumulated volume above today's level and given the right condition the stock may perform very well during the next couple of days.

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, StarTek Inc finds support just below today's level at 10.59. If this is broken, then the next support from accumulated volume will be at 10.48 and 10.33.

Risk

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 USD 0.74 between high and low, or 6.72%. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 4.63%.

The stock is extremely overbought on RSI14 (76). Normally this will pose a good selling opportunity, but since the stock has broken the trend up the chance for a major correction due to high RSI is very small as the stock will find support at the trend broken.

Our recommended stoploss: USD 10.87 (-4.38%) (This stock has high daily movements and this gives high risk. The RSI14 is 76 and this increases the risk substantially. There is a buy signal from pivot bottom found 4 days ago.)

Evaluation

Several short-term signals are positive and the stock has broke the rising trend up, which indicates an even stronger rising rate. 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 period. We have upgraded our recommendation for this stock since last evaluation from a Hold/Accumulate to a Strong Buy Candidate.
