Firsthand Technology Value Fund Stock Analysis
Technical stock analysis for Wed 26'th Jul 2017
Sell candidate since 2017-07-17 Loss -1.00%
Firsthand Technology Value Fund lies in the middle of a 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 -2.42% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $7.83 and $8.25 at the end of this period.
A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Tuesday July 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. Firsthand Technology Value Fund holds a buysignal from the short-term moving average; at the same time, however, a sales signal from the long-term average. Since the longterm average is above the short-term average there is a general sales signal in the stock. On further gains, the stock will meet resistance from the long-term moving average at $8.33. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the short-term average at $8.18. A break-up through the long-term average will give another buy signal, while a fall below the short-term average will add another sales signal and strengthen the general signal. 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 not be. The very low volume increases the risk and reduces the other technical signals issued.
