Shotspotter Inc lies the upper part of a very wide and falling trend in the short term, and this will normally pose a very good selling opportunity for the short-term trader as reaction back towards the lower part of the trend can be expected. A break up at the top trend line at $42.22 will firstly indicate a slower falling rate, but may be the first sign of a trend shift. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to fall -5.52% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $25.35 and $39.89 at the end of this period.
There are mixed signals in the stock today. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Friday January 18, 2019, 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. Shotspotter 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 $40.35 and $34.59. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
RSI14 is 85 and the stock is extremely overbought on RSI14, so further reactions should be expected. Some stocks may have a long and hard correction after reaching so high an RSI, but not in all cases. However, the short-term risk has increased drastically and larger movements in the next couple of days can be expected.
Support & Resistance
On the downside, the stock finds support just below today's level from accumulated volume at $32.67 and $32.65.
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, Shotspotter Inc finds support just below today's level at $32.67. If this is broken, then the next support from accumulated volume will be at $32.65 and $32.53.
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 $2.27 between high and low, or 5.65%. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 5.25%.
The stock is overbought on RSI14 and lies in the upper part of the trend. Normally this will pose a good selling opportunity for the short-term trader, but some stocks may go long and hard while being overbought. Regardless, the high RSI together with the trend position increases the risk and higher daily movements (volatility) should be expected. A correction down in the nearby future seems very likely and it is of great importance that the stock manages to break the trend before that occurs.
Our recommended stoploss: $40.25 (-4.25%) (This stock has very high daily movements and this gives very high risk. The RSI14 is 85 and this increases the risk substantially. There is a sell signal from pivot top found 1 days ago.)
Very Low Low Medium High Very High
Shotspotter Inc holds several positive signals, but we still don't find these to be enough for a buy-recommendation. At the current level we recommend to hold or accumulate in this position whilst awaiting for further development.
